What breed is my pony???

I was told he was a Miniature, but he is so big! He's about 42" (I don't have a stick, just a measuring tape) tall. He is a big sweetheart, and I trust him alone with my 2 year old. He isn't a "cranky pony" at all.... what do you guys think?? Do mini's get tall like this? BTW I am 5'2" and that'm me in the pic....

She is def. A mini ;)

My friend has a mini, and he is enormous! Haha
Is he a gelding?

Lol, hmmm... does look like a mini but then it doesn't. I would definitely say mini or atleast mini/(some kind of pony cross) I have never really seen a taller mini but I am sure they are out there. :) I am sure someone else will come along with more mini experience and let you know.

Actually, now that I think of it.. he could be a shetland or a cross breed..
But, if the person you bought him off of, told you he is a mini, he most likely is :)

He's a gelding and the lady I got him from rescued him and we really have no history on him. She just guessed because he was smaller than her QH's lol.

Minis often go oversize (over 38" at the last mane hair) so it's very possible. Could also be shetland.

Looks like a shetland to me...
Not really sure shetland or mini

Thanks everyone... I was thinking that there could be shetland in there somewhere, I just wanted to see if anyone had either a) a BIG mini or b) new another breed he could be. Oh well, he'll just continue to be my gigantic mini :)

I would say American Shetland, but more likely Miniature Horse.
