What exactly is a Cob Pony?

My vet keeps refering to Jack as a cob pony. He was stunted from being starved before I got him. He's a 3 year old and roughly 12 1/2 hands. I've been refering to him as a Quarter Horse pony. I thought a Cob was an actually breed, not just a size?

Cowgirl up!

There are some breeds with cob in the name - like Welsh Cob, but generally cob is a size/type combination.

I've always thought of cobs as 14-15 hands in height with a good stocky build for weight carrying. Your horse would be a bit short for what I understand as a cob.

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

Cob is a type and they can be any height. In Britain it is becoming more popular to breed small cobs and I've seen them 12.2hh and smaller.

Eagles may soar but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

A cob is a "draft pony".
