do you think he's a mini or???

This is Teddy. He is 10 years old and I was told he was a miniature horse. This poor guy had been passed for home to home because the kids that were suppose to love him could have cared less :( So the lady I got him from really had NO history on him. I measured him (with a tape) and I think he's 42" at the withers. I haven't found anyone who has an extra tall mini like mine... I am starting to think he is mixed with shetland..... what do you think?


That's me in the picture with him...I'm 5'2"

I doubt he's all mini, he looks way to stocky and pony-like. Cute-as-a-button might be a better breed fit!

There used to be 41inch pony at our barn, an adorable WT-two foot pony. He looked very similar, except white!

Well if I can comment on the stocky and pony like comment. I have a mini that is all mini, registered with the AMHR both sire and mare are miniature horses.. and she is stocky like that.. so doesnt necessarily mean that he's not full blooded. What makes me doubt his pureness is his height.. Minis, should be no taller then 38 inches.. in the B divison, and 34 in the A division.. shetlands however do get to 40 inches and above.. so I believe.. because he is 42 inches at the withers.. he is not full mini.. I believe he is mini mixed with shetland because he does share both mini and shetland characteristics.. :)

here is a pic of sarah for reference.. :)

I'm no expert, but I agree! I think he might be all shetland.

yea reading the heights of shetlands and seeing a few more pictures I am starting to think he is all shetland.... I guess I wanted him to be mini because he did ACT like a pony. He's not headstrong or stubburn and he's passionate about his little girl... but I guess now he's just my sweet pony lol Thanks

Many shetlands are double registered as minis. Most (all?) minis go back to shetlands. There really is no way to say if he is or isn't one or the other. Except that technically he's a pony, because minis only go up to 38". BUT, many minis DO go oversize. So, call him a pony, call him an oversized mini, it's up to you ;)

I have many horses that are registered both miniature horse and shetland pony. He could be a miniature that went over or a grade pony. Since he does not have papers the best description would be grade pony.

Cute guy!
