He has a very typical Dales head, neat and delicate with a white stripe.
Here's the rest of him, the day he arrived at mine last year. Doing what he does best :)
He sure is a good looking boy!
I can't claim to know much about British ponies. My family does mostly Arabians but have had a few Appaloosas and even a Quarter Horse. I really like horses, but my allergies act up if I even get too close.
