How is this possible???? Mini ANSATA IBN HALIMA?

I was bored today so I started researching monitors horses with Arab characteristics. While I was looking at this one stud I noticed a little bio. The bio said some stuff about his show record and pedigree, it also said that he was a descendant of Ansata Ibn Halima. What the heck! I get that most light horses have Arab blood somewhere, but really?! Any info you could give me on this is welcomed. Here is the website if your interested. The stud I mentioned is at the very bottom.

Miniature horses were created by continuously breeding smaller and smaller horses to each other. They're not supposed to look like ponies, although many badly conformed ones do. They're supposed to look like perfectly conformed regular sized horses, just in miniature size.

So yes, it's entirely possible for an Arab-type mini to have Ansata Ibn Halima in its bloodline somewhere.

Well, anything is possible. Personally, and nothing against this farm or their programs, but I'm going to say this is a bit of a sale tactic for those looking for Mini's.

I read somewhere that this is what they used to do. They would breed smaller horses with Arabs to get a more refined body, more "delicate" something that would look exactly like a horse only small (The difference between a very well bred miniature and a poorly bred one, they look more like ponies)

I'm not sure when, but they banned this process. They are not allowed to breed to Arabs anymore.

Two of the 'poorly bred' ones you show are actually dwarfs, which is different again. The other, while it looks more 'pony-ish' may actually be a miniture PONY. There are two different things - mini horses and mini ponies.
