What breeds?

I know I will never know what breed(s) Rascal may be, but I do find it fun to get people's opinions - especially as he changes over time. These were taken yesterday - what do you think he could be?

He is 2-ish (still has all his baby teeth yet) and around 14 hands.









From the spring:




All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

He looks like hes got some draft, but im no expert in breed guessin lol. but I do love his nose <3

When I can't ride anymore, I shall keep horses as long as I can hobble along with a bucket and wheelbarrow. When I can't hobble, I shall roll my wheelchair out by the fence of the field where my horses graze, and watch them!

I wonder if any one knows of a draft cross that ended up being only around 14 hands? Could be though - that is what my vet thought when I first got him last year, but he was also thinking he was going to grow taller, but he hasn't.

He looks drafty to me too. Maybe a heavier pony breed, pulling type Haflinger or a cob of some sort?

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

The ad that got me to go look at him last year listed him as a haflinger, but I'm not sure that is because he has haflinger in him, or if they thought "short and stocky" lets just call him a haflinger to get views.
