When my oldest son was in junior jumping there was a pony that identical colour (she was called Chocolate) around the shows. She was a welsh section B but a bit finer built than that one
I had a welsh C x TB that was only 13.2 and not unlike it - also a similar colour.

I agree with Shetland x Welsh. If you are in the US he's VERY unlikely to be Exmoor or Dartmoor.

Shetland x welsh is my guess as well. What a handsome guy, I adore his colouring :).

Very interesting! I suppose this isn't narrowing it down much :P I've never seen a shetland so fine boned? I over on a Welsh thread and everyone said there was no way he could be even half welsh. We have a Welsh/TB colt t our rescue who's already bigger than him and heavier boned at only 7 months old. :S

This is a welsh section B pony from UK based Millcroft Welsh Pony Stud
They are much finer than the A, C & D's
You could cross this with a british Shetland and get something like your boy

So I guess I'm back to Welsh something cross xD
I can't find many pictures of these breeds (welshes, hackneys, shetlands...) that aren't all greased up and contorted into funny positions for shows to see if he might actually be one :P almost all the google pics of these breeds are the horses clipped and spit shined for showing, I'd love to just see one standing in it's paddock or walking naturally. And most of the shetlands I'm seeing are just fat fuzz balls like the ones at my rescues, all heavy boned, I've never seen a shetland as light as him :S but maybe I'm missing something.

It is the slightly course head that looks like a Shetland.
