LOVE the molting [sp?] around his eyes! Handsome boy you have!

POA's are basically Appaloosa/Shetland/Arab mixes so it wouldn't surprise me at all if she had a little (or a lot!) of Arab in her.

And according to the registry, POA's can be up to...I think 14h (the registry measures them in inches, not hands) or 56inches tall so if her mom was an Appy, I'm not surprised at all that she'd come out around 14.2. Especially if her dad was a larger POA.

Anyway, I absolutely adore POAs. If I could have a herd of POAs, I'd do it in a heartbeat. They are just the cutest things. And they often have the sassiest little attitudes...man, I just love them.
Just for funnsies (and for comparisons sake, but more funnsies), here's a few pictures of my most favoritest POA ever. He was quite the little mover too. :)










I hope you don't mind my POA picture spam...

Not at all, spam all you'd like. He is one handsome little [big?] boy!

She appears to have a muscle composition leaning towards slow twitch fibers, small hooves, thinner bone in the leg than I would expect from an Appy or particularly any Shetland influence, and has an Arab butt - all leading me to think she has some Arab in her. Honestly she looks like many of my Araloosas. The only thing that points to anything other than Appy and Arab (at least to me) is her neck, but many Appys have thick necks...
