    Taking guesses on his breed?

    I've asked what breed he is before, but that was before he was at my house and now I'm around him everyday. He's 3 years old, not 4 doesn't have his 4 yr old teeth yet. He moves completly smooth, lots of hock action though. His trot is like sitting to nothing. He has a wavey mane and tail and he's small (probably won't mature over 14.2) and stout. First guess was Quarter Horse, Someone thought Mustang, but if you look he kinda looks part Welsh Pony. He has the exact same expression as this Arab / Welsh Section D someone owns at my barn ; little tiny ears big eyes. And his mane and tail remind me of a pony. The woman sees Welsh in him. My guess is QH/Welsh cross since his head is so big. But he did just get gelded this week, so he still looks like a stud some. Not asking for a confo critique just guessing to his breed.

    I'd say he's way to short to be a begain, I've though Halflinger, but I've never seen a red dun Halflinger, that's why I think he's at least part QH. I have no idea, he came from an auction, it's a toss up to his breed

    I wouldn't really juudge by height since iv seen purebred Qh's under 14 hh but I definitely see QH in him, maybe even Morgan. Something in the first & 3rd pics reminds me of a Morgan...
    Not all crosses look like they should, I know, but if he is crossed with a Welsh he took more to the Qh side lol. Not really anything "ponyish" about him I don't think. I owned a Qh X welsh & she looked nothing like him (he's much better looking ha ha). She basically looked like a welsh with a huge back end!

    Hmmm, my guess is 'Bitsa'. Bitsaeverything that is

    He does look like a good solid little horse though and he has a sweet expression in his eye, both of which count for a lot in my books.

    I once knew a "ho-ney" who was a Belgian Welsh mountain cross. Yes, stranger than my Perch-Arab that cross is. She was extremely smooth, and a lot of action it was hard to rise to her trot! She was also a pretty good jumper.

    All the Belgian crosses I met have had gaits as smooth as silk and had high action! It's what they're bred for they gotta look good when they're in harness!

    He looks like he could be Mustang/QH...either way, he looks like a good solid little horse, regardless of his breed mixture!

    Unless its Spanish a 'mustang' could be any breed or combination off the range, I've seen some that look pure Clydesdale, some that have TB, Saddlebred and other QH blood. Personally, I see QH muscling, but not much of the hip. He has a pony face to me I could tell more if he didn't have a saddle on....for now I'll just call him a quarter ponies

    I think I'm just going to call him a QH / Halflinger cross when ppl ask or a Quarter Pony. This was the guess by many people, and it fits him. But really he can probably be registered Quarter Pony, if I ever really wanted to get that done.
