    I've never actually thought about that. That's interesting to know!

    Its really difficult to comment on 'breeds' as in the UK we have different terminology. If she has feathering on her feet then she has a 'wild pony' in her somewhere. We have some horses called Gypsy Vanners or Welsh Cobs who are pony sized horses with feather. Have a look at some of the British native breeds on the net: Highland Ponies, Welsh Cobs, Dartmoor ponies. I have a feeling you will see a lot more of her heritage but going way, way back. No doubt that she has Arab and Connemara in her somewhere though. Get her seen by a good farrier who will balance her feet for you and sort out any problems. She is sooooo pretty!

    I actually thought she had some welsh cob in her for a while, but then I dropped the idea. Maybe I'll keep those breeds open-minded.

    Her feet are fine right now. It took her a while to get used to the idea of having her hooves done, though.

    And thanks! I first found out about her without even seeing her picture. Once I found a picture (which was an awful one of her at that!) nobody could understand why I would want her. It was a TERRIBLE shot of her. Once I got her home and groomed up, she sparkled. O:
    Point is: don't judge horses by their appearance. You never know what might be under the surface layer. C;

    ^ Am I the only one who sees some similarity between this horse and mine?

    This horse is a pony. Welsh or Welsh cross I'd say. If it had a little less "upholstery" you could see her hind end is shaped differently. Legs are shorter, body longer.
    As for feathering, yes, Arabs can have light feathering. If you leave them au naturel. Most people here clip.

    I noticed in the video that she has some dots on her body, I'm guessing that is from going gray?

    You NEVER judge a horse by its appearance. I used to ride a horse who was considered the most 'ugliest' at the stable. He was flea bitten grey with a brown mane and pink skin around his eyes. He looked awful, but do you know, he was the best hacking horse (trail riding) I have ever ridden. Once he knew a little bit of love and kindness from me, he really did become a handsome if not pretty horse. His name was Ernie and I loved him to bits.

    You know what? I have been studying and studying your pics. I'm quite taken with your horse and I am sure she is more Connemara than anything Welsh. Have a look at the picture below. Your horse has many similar features to this one, the only thing being that this pony is 100% Connemara. Let me know what you think. They have a Connemara Society in the UK and they have a website which you could look at too. Google The British Connemara Society. You got yourself a gorgeous pony there!
