What breed is Sunny?
 
So, lately I've been riding a 13hh Paint Gelding, named Sunny.

His owner says that he's a Quarter Horse, that didn't make it to a horse (so quarter pony), but I don't know about that. Here's some pictures, and please help me figure it out.

(Tell me if you need more pictures, I have a ton)

Personality: He's really calm on ground, riding he's a bit hyper, but that's only him. He rarely spooks. Has tiny feet, kind of like some Quarter Horses. I don't know him well enough to go into detail. He's always very willing.

Guess away!

hmmm, i personally think hes not a qh but i could be wrong. the head doesnt look quite right and he seems to have way too much mane and forelock for a qh. thats just my opinion though, i could be wrong :)

p.s. just a side note: you said he was a paint. paints are a breed and im not entirely sure he is a paint so he would be a pinto of sorts (skewbald i think :? not sure there either as i always get them coloured horseys all mixed up lol)

Thanks. Yeah, I don't think he's a Quarter horse - maybe a cross?

Ha, when I was younger I called everything that was painted a paint, so I guess it's just a habit.

What a cute fella. He looks like a cross between a welch & pinto pony :D

LinRodeo - Thanks. I don't think he's welsh. I've seen a lot of welsh ponies (my friend breeds them), and he doesn't look like one.
