what breed is he?
 
ok so my friend has a horse that is supposedly a tennessee walker and i have been trying to find out his actual breed for a long time because he reminds me nothing of a tennessee walker. So recently we measured his height and he is in pony size of 14.2hh so i have been thinking about his shape and the characteristics about him and his head and everything. See he stays slender all the time but obviously not a thoroughbred or anything but then he gets really fuzzy and has lots of feathering sometimes. So for some reason i started thinking welsh pony. We have even thought of friesian before but i highly doubt that one. Maybe fell pony? i just don't even know...what do you think?

here's some pics...

this is him in his tack.

so what do you think?

Is he gaited? His conformation looks a little Walker-ish to me.

Jr_lover 02-03-2008 01:06 AM

yea he racks according to his owner....

some people call it a pace i think.

bubba13 02-03-2008 10:01 PM

Then why can't he just be a short TWH? Either that or a grade horse of mixed lineage (which is probably more likely).

Jr_lover 02-03-2008 10:16 PM

yea maybe but i had a tennessee walker and my other friend had one i had to sell mine and hers died but they both were absolutely different compared to this horse. I know he is definitely not full tennessee walker. He just don't seem like it to me.

Umm.... I'm thinking he's probably a mixture? Is he gaited? If i remember correctly in pictures 3 and 4 he looks like he's trotting. I don't think he's a welsh pony and i'm pretty certain he's not a fresian. Fell ponies really aren't that common. So I'm thinking probably mostly TWH mixed with something smaller that made him a little guy.

He looks like a TWH cross.

edit-

That breast collar is awesome. Where did you get it? I want one. :)

ThatAlternativeRider 02-03-2008 11:49 PM

Sure does. I agree with all the above. Looks like a TWH cross.

Tammy 02-04-2008 01:02 AM

i would say TW cross.Ihad a friend onetime who had a registered TWH who was only 14.2 just think it depend on the breeding.

Grendel 02-04-2008 05:22 AM

i would bet on THW cross.
