New Pony! not sure what breed
2 Attachment(s)
Theres a new pony at the barn. Not sure what breed he is. My trainer thinks he is a welsh/thoroughbred cross. she also thinks he has some morgan in him. when she got him from the old owner..they said hes a quarter horse.

what do you see?

sorry if the pics are big.

Wow i love him, I'm not an expert on breeds, but dont see QH..atleast not full anyway. Subbing to see what others think

I'm going to go with morgan/thoroughbred but no welsh and morgan/quarter horse may be a possibility as well.

sommsama09 09-04-2012 11:25 PM

How tall is he? That might help :smile:

Is he gaited? Could he be a rocky mountain? He reminds me alot of the old style morgans too. I don't see any QH/TB really. I really do think he looks alot like a rocky mountain horse the more I look into it. Check out the breed IDK much about them.

I'm going to say Morgan/QH. He's got the Morgan neck, ears and the foundation Morgan hind. But, his shoulders to me look QH. I don't see Welsh at all.

Thank you for your answers.

I think my trainer said he was 14.2 14.3..

i have some pics of him trotting on the lunge line..and theres no high knee action. So i dont think hes gated.

Grace...i like how you said the pony has morgan ears,neck,and butt .. and qh shoulders..

how can he have qh shoulders

i will pass all of this infor to my trainer.

i wish there were dna tests for they have for dogs.. :)

You sure you want to open that can of worms?:lol:

As simple as I can state it without ruffling feathers, the new "style" Morgan tends to look a little more like an Arab or even more Saddlebred. The "older" style is a little more "round" and less arab looking. I know that's pretty vague, but it's the easiest way to explain it.

thank you for the infor. we've never had a morgan at the barn before. so i dont know anything about the breed. :(
