What pony breed?

So I've had this pony for a while now and I've been told he's everything from an exmoor, new forest, welsh, shetland, to a wild pony. I just have no idea, I can't find "him" in any books.
Anyone have any ideas what breed he really is? We're in the Mass, in US, he came to our rescue from a family who got him from a horse trader. He's got a lot of spit and vinegar in him :P We go for hikes and do unmounted agility. He's about 9 hands (rough measurement) and 450lbs.

Here he is:

Playing in the snow:

My friend trying to get him to stand square :P

The lighting is terrible but he's standing more squarely

No doubt that there's Welsh in there. Too refined for just Shetty.

Love the Welsh NF, Clava

Could have some Icelandic too. That would explain the color....hmm....
