    What breed do you think he is?

    Thunder is an appoximately 13.2h smokey black pony gelding I got for free a year ago. His old owner told me he was a Arab/QH but some of what she told me has turned out less than accurate (example: she told me he was 7 but turns ut he is probably closer to 11-12). I personally don't see Arab (though he IS a spooky little man lol)...a lot of people have suggested Quarter Pony, but although he is fat, he isn't super stocky. What do you think?

    I do not see Arabian either, but it would be much better to get a good idea if you had a picture where he is standing straight, neck extended and all four feet underneath him. Stout little bugger, I've had a Quarter Pony much lighter build then him:

    I don't see Arab but I think I see some Welsh. Maybe Welsh/QH cross?

    I don't see anything specific in him. He could be a product of many different breeds in his background. Looks like a handy little guy though.

    Just wanted to add, that having Arabian in the background, doesn't necessarily mean a horse is likely to be spooky.

    I defiantly don't see any Arabian in him but he defiantly looks like he's got some welsh pony in him. Perhaps a welsh / QH cross ? Looks like a very sturdy fellow. Haha

    I would guess at WelshXQH, which would sort of be a Quarter Pony. The only requirements for a Quarter Pony is that one of the parents be registered with either AQHA or APHA and be under 14.2 I believe. The other half can be anything

    I saw a Fell Pony today that looked like a twin, I'd say fell or welsh

    Huh....interesting! My mom used to breed Section C & D Welsh Cobs and I don't really see Welsh but I suppose it's a possibility!

    We honestly think he could be part Appy or POA as he is slowly starting to spot out with age. Nothing dramatic, but there are a few places on his body that started out as a few white hairs and are slowly growing. Also under his belly (near his privates, lol) his black skin is actually distinctly spotted!

    He's so cute, perhaps he is Welsh/QH?

    Arabians are not spooky, I have owned Arabians for over 30 years and I have known more spooky QHs than I have Arabians.

    Like many other things I guess its a matter of opinion and depends on the individual. I have known many Arabs who were spooky and owned one for a while myself. He wasn't overly spooky but he was rather odd. Very antisocial and fussy.

    But anyway this thread isn't about that
