Count Jackula, not at any point did the OP say that Percheron or Connemara were a british breed. she said that the pony was bred and registered in the UK...

He does look like a Connemara if you want my opinion, I dont really see any Percheron, apart from the dark grey colour is common in them. He is stocky but that is a connemara breed trait. I think if he had percheron in him he would stockier still. His leg confo is the opposite of a percheron.

Take a look at these pictures and compare for yourself...

In the picture with the human legs by his you can tell his legs and feet are big. I don't know what he is but I love his dapples very handsome.

I rode a Connemara for a while, and he looked a lot like your pony. He's cute.

Thanks guys :)
I'm pretty convinced he's a connemara. I've looked at pics of percheron pony crosses and they are a lot stockier than him. Plus that pic of the percheron you posted is pretty drastic compared to the connemara pic, lol.

I also vote Connemara. Connies and Percherons both have some Arab blood so that could be the similarities you're seeing in their heads.

Omg so the lady I'm boarding with told me everyone that sees him thinks he is a draft & donkey cross... is it just me or is she crazy? I mean... He's clearly a pony right?
Where's the donkey in him???

Oh - that's funny! A draft/pony/donkey cross would give you a mule! Your guy is definitely not a mule!

My sister in law had a connie - he looked a lot like your guy, and he was all horse - not a donkey in sight!
