He was gelded in August, vet at that time said he was about 1 1/2 years old. He's got kinda a roman nose. He maybe a bit more than 12h (he is little, would say no more than 13h, but I couldn't find my tape to give him a better guesstimate) but I also suspect he was a bit stunted.
Where he was found, predominate breed are Tennessee walker, and quarter horses (and paints). Ponies aren't that popular here, but I agree he is looking more "ponyish" these days. The only ponies I've really heard of around here are "pony of America", occasionally a welsh or welsh cross, but again, ponies are that common.
