What breed is Sunny?

So, lately I've been riding a 13hh Paint Gelding, named Sunny.

His owner says that he's a Quarter Horse, that didn't make it to a horse (so quarter pony), but I don't know about that. Here's some pictures, and please help me figure it out.

(Tell me if you need more pictures, I have a ton)

Personality: He's really calm on ground, riding he's a bit hyper, but that's only him. He rarely spooks. Has tiny feet, kind of like some Quarter Horses. I don't know him well enough to go into detail. He's always very willing.

Guess away!

Hmmm, I personally think he's not a qh but I could be wrong. The head doesnt look quite right and he seems to have way too much mane and forelock for a qh. That's just my opinion though, I could be wrong :)

P.s. Just a side note: you said he was a paint. Paints are a breed and im not entirely sure he is a paint so he would be a pinto of sorts (skewbald I think not sure there either as I always get them coloured horseys all mixed up lol)

Thanks. Yeah, I don't think he's a Quarter horse - maybe a cross?

Ha, when I was younger I called everything that was painted a paint, so I guess it's just a habit.

What a cute fella. He looks like a cross between a welch & pinto pony

LinRodeo - Thanks. I don't think he's welsh. I've seen a lot of welsh ponies (my friend breeds them), and he doesn't look like one.

I always thought paints were registered and pintos were not. Boy do I feel stupid now.

::hides under a rock:: lol

Ya I don't think he's a qh. Like jazzyrider said his head looks kinda different & his body is 2 stocky for his neck 2 be a qh. He's probably a pinto x ??????? Lol..
