What's considered a pony? It is 14.1 or 14.2 or 14.3? lol. Cuz he is right at the 14.2-3 mark, so Idk if I'd call him a pony :P But thats an interesting question.

I like the idea of morgan/quarter horse. Seems to fit him, I especially think his head and his neck don't quite fit pure quarter horse, and hes a little short too.

I think 14.2 is a pony. He could be a QH, some of them are rather short.

I really like his build, he looks like he could hit the trails forever.

I would say quarter horse.
if he's marked at 14'3 then he can be classed as either a large pony or a small horse (thats what i've always been told anyway)

I think he looks full Quarter Horse. The height/hands high(hh) of a Quarter Horse starts at roughly 14.3hh and goes to 16hh, although I knew some QH who are 16.3hh. The shorter heights/hh are more closely monitored as anything under about the 14hh is considered as Quarter Pony.

Your new horse looks like a very sweet and good-natured fellow!

I could agree with haflingerlover and the "old school" morgan, however...call me crazy but, my first thought was Welsh Pony. The shape of his head (he does not have the small ear though) and the length of his body in proportion to his solid shoulder and thick neck... It would also explain his size.

14.3h is a horse, not a large pony.
14.2h is the cut off.

Thank you AB, everyone always refer'd to whiskey as a pony, and when i was little i used to argue that she was a horse, guess i eventually accepted the fact she was a large pony.....when really she is a horse (she's 14'3) haha.
However i suppose it's not just down to height that determines weather its a pony? Conformation as well as height is an aspect to take in to consideration as well?
