What breed is my pony?

So here is my new boy. He is approx 10 years old, I know little to nothing about his background, previous training etc. I bought him from a woman desperate to rehome him and was more of a last ditch effort to keeping him out of the sale yard. She stated he was bought from a sale and she knew little about him. I assume he has been bounced around a bit.
He arrived a few weeks ago, untrusting, unsure of himself and everything around him. He has multiple bite scars on his neck and body, some newer...several older. Very food aggressive and somewhat worried. We've worked out most of the bugs...he is now very vocal and quick to come cantering up the field when I pull up, is doing far better about feed time and I believe he is enjoying being fussed over!
Along with not knowing little Scouts past, we of course are not sure exactly what Scout is. Not that it really matters but it is a fun guessing game! I of course have my idea of what the little monster might be...but what do you think? He is a short little guy at 14.1HH

Screams Arabian to me... I've seen a few that look pretty similar to Scout here. What sticks out to me is his slightly dished face, the way he moves, those long thin legs, tail carriage and his barrel.

That is our guess too....maybe a little welsh in the mix too? Maybe not, but he is so little! Then again, I might just think he small considering he shares a field with this guy who is 16HH +/- but has a forever long neck so he dwarfs my pony! And little Scout was standing uphill from Skye in this pic! LOL

I don't know much about Welsh ponies, so I can't really say :) I have seen really short Arabians in the 14 hand range before though, never seemed that out of the ordinary. He is super cute though

What an adorable little guy! I just love the chromey chestnut coloring he's got. And such a sweet face! Glad you got ahold of him, rather than the meat man or something like that.

He reminds me of a polish arabian. Sturdy but at the same time, very refined. But at the same time that could be a welsh x arab cross talking. Either way he's just the cutest!

Thanks so much guys! I think he's pretty cute! After the first couple of days of him being a total butthead I just kept reminding myself it seems he had had a tough go of it...he needed to get used to a whole new routine...blah, blah, blah...but mostly and if nothing else, his redeeming quality was cuteness!
He has made major improvements in attitude, so now his personality is getting closer to being as cute as his appearance...with just a few hiccups along the way! Nothing patience and persistence can't fix, right?!?!

He has plenty of arab in him, no doubt. His thin legs, his refined/ rounded face, that short back end, his neck, he's gotta be at least half.

Man, that white horse looks so regal! Very lovely, both of them.

HE doesn't look welsh to me at all, but he does look very Arab. Most Arabs are very small, especially in comparison with other horses. I've mostly seen them in the 14h-15h ish range. My first arab was only 13.3 and my second was 14, both were registered.
