    Many "Mini bloodlines" contain heavy Shetland breeding.
    Technically a mini is just under 38" tall.

    That said I have a good friend who paid quite a bit of money for a silver bay pinto filly who was triple registered, AMHA/AMHR/WC. She was supposed to mature at 32" tall - needless to say she is in fact 42" tall and built every bit like a fat, stocky, grade looking pony with no miniature horse qualities to speak of.

    He could very well be a mini who went over, a mini x pony cross or a Shetland, hard to say :)

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.. :)

    OMG!! Little Boots at the farm where I work looks soooo much like this little one! Do you call that a "chocolate paomino"? I'm no colour expert....here is a pic of boots at my son's party!

    Sorry it's not a good pic - but you can get the idea of how sweet he is! Imagine if boots and your mare had little chocolate babies together!

    I would definitely lean towards Shetland. Doesn't look like a mini as much to me... I'm no expert though.

    Color is silver black (could be a very dark silver bay, hard to tell on your tiny picture :) ) I love silvers :) (that's going off of your photo, I can't see the other poster's photo right now, most photos are blocked at work. Yours isn't though! :)
