agreed - my new pony, if she stays short enough, will be eligible to be registered, but if she grows too tall she will be grade
Though I did breed my mare twice for grade foals (who I regrettably had to sell both foals when $ grew short after the younger one )
Both were still high quality horses.. good conformation, great dispositions but they were bred with the intention of NEVER being sold (and unfortunately now the guy I sold them to has moved and sold them so I have no idea where my babies are)
