Okay guys in your opinions what breed would you consider the healthiest breed? Particually with regard to genetic condition that DON'T have tests for.
Reported it thanks to my gargantuan lack of a brain. Thanks Tinyliny.
Oh and on a side not nothing Donkey related as they don't do well in shetland and no arabs or that type (sadly) my mum doesn't like that type of horse though I will one day convert her.
Now a little background and the reason behind the question.
The reason for the question is we have been breeding/showing/training British Shetlands for a few years but we are have had a hellish time with our stallion who sadly is most likely being put down tomorrow due to a genetic fault that is untestable and appears to be much more prevalent in the breed then we thought. We aren't planning anything for the near future we're talking like 10 years down the line when I have finished what I have/hope to do at uni. So now because of this problem with our stallion and the yearling we have by him (she was was 3 days old when he was diagnosed) my mum no longer wants to breed shetlands as we really don't want to go through this heart break again. However in the future we do want to find a different breed to research meet a few ect to find a new breed though we off course are keeping most of our shetlands as pets and for showing.
