I'd say Belgian cross also. He does have a the head and color. I've seen some pretty short Belgian crosses

There's something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.

Looking at the pictures again, I'd say something like a halflinger quarter horse cross.

I cannot pull up the pics BUT my sonny is Percheron (Dam)registered and the suspected Sire is 1/2 Begian and 1/2 QH =his mother is HUGE, Sonny is a keg with legs but only 15.3-6 hands-as wide as he is tall-he really looks to me like a gi= normous fiord! When he is being petulant or a sh** he has the look of a big a**donkey around the eye-when he is a good boy and attentive he is gorgeous
Wish I could see your pictures

Ok - look beyond the color. You can't base breed on color because QH and Welsh both have chestnut with flaxen as well. So that color is not unique to belgian or haflinger. He looks like a QH or QH cross to me. I had a QH mare at one point who was only 13.3 hands.

I don't see belgian at all in this horse. I currently own two hafligners and visit a haflinger breeding and training farm on a regular basis and I'm not seeing haflinger in this horse either. The conformation and thickness on this horse is wrong for either of those breeds. It is more of a stock-horse look than draft or haflinger.

A haflinger would have smaller ears, thicker mane and tail, stockier feet, the tie-in would be different in the neck and the head would be a bit more refined.

...but a belgian could still work the head is large, with large ears, his feet are large, also.

I personally don't see any stock horse at all in him

...actually the more and more I look at him, I'm thinking haflinger/belgian cross - - Are there a lot of farms in your area, braidee?

I see either halflinger or belgian because of the stockyness. I'd say either of those crossed with a small type pony or QH.

Well he has a VARY THICK TAIL but he has barley a mane

and he has a small head becaz we have to use almost an extra small break away halter on him and he may look a little stocky becaz he is chunky
