I suggest you have your "pure" Nokota DNA and then put the findings on here. Who told you yours was 81% pure? Seth Z tells a good story based on his opinion - not facts. Or as Leo Kuntz has stated, "We can make the papers read anyway you want"
The herd stallion was shot - which one? Who introduce draft?? Where are the facts?
The horses the Kuntzs got from the Park and the ones there now are a mix of ranch horses, a very very few indian horses, settlers & farmers that did not make it homesteading, etc.
The Park was fenced and the few (less than 10) horses introduced (none were drafts) did little if any breeding as they could not compete with the horses in the Park. Most were removed or died.
The horses in the Park has been observed and documented from the beginning. They all have names &/or numbers and many are mirco chipped. Interestingly the Nokota Horse Conservancy / Kuntzs do not have these historial reports nor do they get involved with the documeentation of these horses.
They do breed everything on there land, sell hundreds to the kill market and for many years used donated money to feed their own horses.
Yeaa.... Try seeing the horses for yourself, the horses basically speak for themselves. And It's written right on her papers. And all their horses and offspring have been documented from the time they got them.
Nokotas have SUPER thick winter coats, they are way more playful than most horses, they are also way smarter, they have spanish genes including sclera, they have mustang feet, they are good adapters, easy keepers, they also do the indian shuffle. They are cowy and good versatile horses.
Here's mine's pedigree: Prairie Spirit Mustang/wild
Also the Kuntz have disabilities and CANNOT work, they live off welfare and such and all the money they do get goes to the horses.
And also, one thing I've noticed... All the people who HAVE nokotas will back up what I've said, but anyone who has not outright even see one will tell all the nokota people they're wrong. And also, about the park horses, you said not all the introduced stallions fared well? Well they would have done at least some breeding, which would have altered the foals and been passed down through those foals
