Your welcome!

You know how to make a miniature horse even smaller? Leave them in the dryer a little longer!

definitely a silver black (aka silver dapple), and many of them DO have a brown look to them at times. If you go to my website (in my sig) and go to horses, mini horses, mini geldings (sorry I can't link to it from work) and look at Cruiser, he is DNA tested silver black... but nothing "black" about his looks! :) Silver blacks have a wide range of appearences.

The silver gene is a dilution gene and I have yet to see a silver that actually looked silver. I agree with everyone else that looks to be a black based silver or what most call "silver dapple". Very pretty!

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

Most of the ponies in North America are Welshes of some kind so that's a good bet. The only other common pony breeds are the POA and Connemara and she's not either of those.

Shetland is the other type that is common in NA.

In Canada Shetlands are listed as critically endangered. If you think about it, there aren't many tiny kids who ride so there isn't much demand for Shetlands.

Gorgeous horse! Silver dapple, though, for sure! :)
