Kaimanawa

Hi, I thought it better to start a new topic rather than hijack A to Zs.
OK www.kaimanawa.com is the best site i have found so far...no mention of the army and strangles epidemic but nice site about breed and history and more importantly future. I personally have never owned one but many freinds have them. very sound strong horse much like the old stationbred horses that farmers used to breed for farm work...had bits of everything in them They were a good childs mount so perhaps i should look at them closer.

Would you consider the Kaimanawa as a stand alone breed like for example the arab or clyde? I am still forming an opinion of them but at this stage I am thinking of them as a composite breed as they are made up of a few different breeds......selective and unselective.
They do stand alone here in the sense that they remained virtually untouched and are wild but also appear to have evolved to adapt to their surroundings and obviously the law of nature prevails.
Does anyone know of any other horses like the Kaimanawa in the world?

I just thought I would bump this one for people to see again, considering I have taken horses from the muster this year. More photo's in journal section under Kaimanawa's @ Tumai's.

Thanks for the links, Tumai! I'd love to see pics of your recent adoptees Have you had wild horse experience before? They'll teach you a lot about good horsemanship. The three mustangs I've got are all very different from one another. If you ever have questions, don't hesitate to ask!
