Hmm. I don't think your correct Starryeyed. I read in an Equine Encyclopedia or some published equine book on the history of the POA. It made mention of Appaloosa and Shetland crosses creating the POA.

It was a Arab-Appaloosa bred to a shetland that got it started, but after that they allowed outcrossing. I was just on their website:

Okay thanks. Yeah I do remember them mentioning Shetlands but I researched them quite a few years ago when Watson first became mine.

Originally yes shetlands were part of the breeding, but now every POA I have come across is mostly QH and appy. I am close to 2 different POA breeders in the area and know the breeding of their show stock, shetlands are not really used anymore, although their are some shetland sized POAs for sure. I myself prefer the larger ones that are closer to 13 or 14 hands. They are supposed to be short, stocky, built like a QH, dishy like an arab and marked like an appy.

The POA height limits are higher than they were originally--currently the low limit is 46" and the tallest allowed is 56". (POAs which mature over or under can get ID papers for breeding, but cannot be shown, as is also the case with solid POAs with not enough visible coat pattern.)

I learned to ride on POAs. They are super sweet/gentle ponies that are great for young riders. My riding instructor has owned POAs for a looooong time and she currently has 3 of them. This is the pony she was considering buying and I wish she would've because she is gorgeous!

The great thing about horses.....If you love them, they will love you back.

hmm, I thought to be a POA they HAD to have some of the traits for an appy... like striped hoolves, spots, or mottled skin around the muzzle, eyes, udders or under tail area...also the sclera tends to be visible in the eyes(white around the iris).. to my knowledge they could not be a solid color unless they have some of the other traits, is your pony registered POA?
