    Default Breed experts - what do you think my Heinz 57 is made of?

    My pony doesn't have any sire/dam or breed info in his passport and I always wonder what's made him? Obviously there's cob in him but what else?
    Background: He's a 14.1 gelding who came over from Ireland when he was 5 and very much has a pony mentality/personality!!! Clever, cheeky, quick on his feet and has some strength for his size he's happy to turn his hoof to anything! Good doer.
    Try to give you a variety of pics from various angles including headshots (any excuse to post pics of the handsome boy!!! )










    Any thoughts??

    Probably got a bit of Connie in him somewhere, but nothing is glaringly obvious to me

    As an Irish pony I'd say that there's likely to be a touch of Connemara, and that personality description screams it Few other bits and pieces too but as Red said, nothing too obvious. He's a beaut!

    I had an inkling about the connie too but wondered what others thought as I'm no expert! He was advertised as an ID x but can't really see it myself.

    That did cross my mind actually, in terms of build he looks very like my horse but smaller and slightly chunkier (mine's IDxTB)

    Pretty much everything in Ireland will be an ID cross somewhere down the line!

    Cob is a type not a breed, so he IS a cob, it's not just "in" him

    PS. Forgot to mention he's LOVELY
