Question What breed do you think he is?

Hi =) well i have this 13.2hh pony and i have no idea what breed he is Also no way to contact his owners.. I have been told maybe a quarter horse/Welsh
but i'm not sure. He is extremely fast and i'm pretty sure he could out run full horses his owners also said he has shown past 3ft6 so i'm not sure if that helps.. Thanks =)

i would say there is thoroughbred blood in him. he looks a bit 'lean' to have welsh, IMO.

they make dna test kits for dogs that you can buy and mail in to get the results. i wonder if they have the same for horses?? would be interesting to see what your guy is 'made of'.

I'm thinking part TB, looks a lot like the pony I've been showing with ...

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

I definitely don't think there is welsh in there. I would guess a quarter horse cross. That hind end really makes me think its a quarter horse but he's on the leaner side of it, which makes me think its a mix. That horse is just to short to be a tb cross I think, unless mom or the sire where a tb cross to begin with which could have let to such a short stature.

I'm not very good and just learning the breeds but he looks like he might be part Arabian and also part throughbred because
he looks kind of tall with Long legs

He screams QH to me as well. Maybe some pony blood not sure. Could also be grade, but there is definitely QH somewhere in there.

I would say there has to be some pony blood in there to get the size - so I would go for a section C welsh or a small hackney pony crossed with either an arab, anglo arab or TB
Could also be a morgan x welsh
