Hey everyone!
I just bought this little mare and id like some opions.

I went to the P.O.A. website and they stated that some characteristics of a P.O.A. are white around the eye, appy coloring, and striping in the hoof.

can you tell if shes P.O.A. material? her hooves have striping, she has the white "watchy" eye, and the coloring. shes about 12.2 - 13.0 hands.

Id like to try and register her if i can.... what do you think??

(i attached a picture)

She looks like she would fit the bill. Are there any breeding/pedigree requirements? I know many registries require that at least one parent be registered.
Quarter Ponies, for example, must have one parent who is registered as either a Quarter Pony, a Quarter Horse or a Paint. The other half can be anything.
I would contact the registry to be sure.

Color fits, size fits - not much more that the POA-Registry asks for for hardship registrations, as far as I understand. Can not have an under- or overbite and not allowed to show pinto markings. I think you are good - give it a try.
