I love POAs :) I had a gorgeous one, but recently sold him to friends as he wasn't tall enough to be a real riding horse for me (only 12.2). Been kicking around the idea of breeding my Arabian to his sire in the spring...

Here are some photos of the one I used to own, Tough Rockets Tiger (I called him Skylar)

PS yours is adorable! :)

Skylar is so cute! We are hoping that Chex gets color. His mom was born solid and eventually roaned out so we will see. Its so fun wondering if he will change or not. If you look closely you can see the dun spot near is right shoulder area, that is getting lighter. But I love him the way he is, he's darling. My favorite color of POAs is the few spot, theres one for sale near me and I want him so bad. But I don't need 2 yearling stud colts lol.

You love fewspots, in appearance? Not many do! Most people love them for breeding horses, since they're homozygous appies :) Skylar's dad is one. But I prefer to SEE the spots! :)

Your boy is so cute! Does have have the mottling? It appears he has the sclera, but hard to tell in photos sometimes! If he has the sclera, mottling (muzzle and/or genitals) and striped hooves, he will most likely color out :) It's fun watching them change! I have a spotted blanket appy mini who is roaning out, and it's fun to look back at his photos and see how much he's changed... and he's only 3! :)

He has mottled skin and the "poa eyes" and his cute flaxen mane and tail. Ya I absolutly love few spots, would love to have one! I just really like their coloring, and I also like cremellos, which most people don't. These are the type of fewspots I like. I only like the ones with coloring on their legs, its contrasts with their body and I love it.

This buckskin fewspot foal is Chex's half sister and I want her so so so bad, she has blue eyes, she's not for sale though bummer.

And this guy is for sale and I want him

I used to ride a POA gelding named Raspberry- he is really short, and has mottled skin and is adorable.

POAs have really good personalities, I think.

PS I was really little there!

Your little one is soooo cute!!! We have a 13 yr. Old POA gelding (no papers, lots of brands from who knows where so we're kind of guessing!) and he is the best guy ever. He's 13.3, very solid bone and he is so good with my 11 yr. Old daughter who can be kind of a space cadet! He was abused at some point in his life but has come a long way in our family, now likes to be scratched and loved on, thinks everything plastic has treats in it! He is also my husband's favorite ride, loves trail riding.

He's named "Spirit Bear" after the bear paw print on his neck:

Loves to play with his buddy, Tahoe:

Normally, he's pretty laid back and lazy, but the boy can run!!
