It could be a Shetland Welsh cross cause it looks like my
Cousins pony that she used to have

Hard to say the breed, but that thing is quite old and has Cushings disease. If you have not had a vet see to it, please do so ASAP. It'll need medication to control the condition.

I don't see Haflinger in that head at all. I would guess a Shetland cross of some sort.

Mo - what signs are you seeing that point to cushings? All I'm seeing is hairiness which I've seen plenty of ponies like that in the winter. Wondering what I'm missing.

OP, I can't help you with breed but he's cute! I agree you should at least get him checked out by a vet whether you think theres anything wrong with him or not. Bubba, how can you tell that it has cushings and his fur doesn't look like that from getting wet and drying weird? Had a horse at work yesterday look similar to that after working himself up to the point that he sweat a bit and it dried looking curly (and he def does not have cushings)

The curliness of the coat and the excessive hair on the legs. Looks like there could be muscle wastage on the topline, too.

Healthy pony:

Cushings horse:

I could be wrong....but I don't think I am.
