She looks a lot like that top one. Now don't get me wrong. I think she is really cute!

What does POA stand for?

She is a bit long in the back.. and she is not going to pop her knees up over fences due to the angle of her point of shoulder. However, she looks very useful and you will have some fun with this one!

When using a chain over a horse's nose the correct way is to run the chain through the near nose band ring, take a wrap around the nose band, then run it through the off nose band ring and then UP ALONG the Cheek Piece to the ring that attached to the throat piece and the crown piece on the off side. This is how you lead stallions and yearlings.

Most leads with chains are made with the chain too short.. the chain should be 30 inches long so you can configure it correctly. Taking a single wrap around the nose band will allow the chain to get the horse's attention but will not allow the chain to do all the work and do severe damage to the nose or injure the skin. Learned this handling horses for yearling sales (Thorougbred race horses). Those young 'uns have to have all their skin intact.. but they are firey and you do need to be able to get their attention.

PS: One of the best horses I ever knew was a POA and he lived and worked into his 30's.

Not to change this to a "name my pretty pony" thread, but I'm thinking of naming her Annie and having her show name as Plain Jane, any thoughts? After the song Annie by Safteysuit ---> Safetysuit - Annie - YouTube

This little one doesn't have a name? Ah poor thing. I like Annie. Especially because she has a mule looking face to me and Annie is an awesome mule name.

What???? I honestly would LOVE to own a mule! They are so freaking adorable. And I would name her Annie or Sally if a girl and Hank or Harold if it was a boy. LOL
