Talking What breed is he?

Hey guys, long time no see

So im leasing this gelding off my boss to school him and hopefully get him good enough to be used for shows or to sell on to a good home, I been told he was too strong for the previous owners children and that's why they sold him to us

He is a chestnut gelding with a flaxen mane, and his passport tells us nothing about him except his name is Flash and he was born in 1993, making him 16 this year!

He isnt the biggest pony, anly about 13.3hh maybe 14hh im not certain

He looks like a haflinger. But I could be wrong?

He may even be Halflinger Cross... I know one pony who's 12.2 and he's got Thoroughbred in
Him for gosh sakes - it's so hard to tell without a background... but the mane makes me think there is some Halflinger in there.

He may have haflinger in him - but if so, I really doubt if he is a purebred. Just doesn't have the typical haflinger look. Over in the UK they have many other pony breeds that could create that "look" than they do over here. I'm thinking Welsh Cob is more likely.

I agree: When I saw him, I saw a Halflinger. They are ponies, but are often really filled out. He looks a little lighter than most Halflingers. Maybe a cross; some TB or Cob, maybe?

I don't know.

Pretty, though!!!

It seems the trend to think anything short and stocky and flaxen chestnut in color is a haflinger - but that is just not the case.

I thought Haflingers only came in a light shade of palomino? I would say he might be a cross...

Thats all that I thought, I did think maybe haflinger cross welsh cob, because of his back, but then again I don't know what other breeds have that kind of back, could be a sec C??
