For a start they are not horses they are ponies! British native Ponies (yes even the 16hh section D's)

Having grown up in the heart of welsh breeding (North Wales, UK) the ponies are marmite ponies perticularly the section D's you either love them or you hate them.

As a breed I love them and I love thier Fire, but they don't tend to be for novice riders (or at least the well bred ones don't)

One breed I would not choose to own, they are just not my cup of tea.

I have to agree with Clava. I personally don't really like them.

I love Welsh's! One of my favorite ponies was a Section C. Adults who ride ponies get made fun of but I still would have bought him if I had the money. He was a little devil and that's why I liked him... robot horses are boring!

Section D's are pretty rare around here. The barn I went to when I was a kid bred them, but I've seen hardly any in the last 20 years or so.

I don't actually know much about Welsh's but I've been told my little pony is one, do you Welsh experts know if he is or what section he'd be?
I love him! He's definitely a spit-fire, we do unmounted agility together :)

Him running around :)

This is him out on one of our walks

This is my friend holding him by some pretty flowers xD

Doesnt look welsh to me! He looks more like a small New forest or exmoor cross
How big is he?

No, that pony doesn't look welsh, I'd agree with a NF or Exmoor cross or something.

I wouldn't think New Forest or Exmoor types are very common in the US. I could imagine some Welsh Section A in there somewhere, but definitely not purebred.

I don't see any welsh traits in it at all, welshies tend to throw thier very distinctive characteristics even into the partbreds. Even with as little as 12.5% welsh blood you can see a lot of the characteristics a mile off.
