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?

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.

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.

A cob is a "draft pony".
