I could be wrong but....not sure I'd want my kids to have a stud for a first horse, even if he is little.
'big pet' = I've never been taught manners and am always pushing my way into your space.
I see far too many stud ponies for sale as "perfect child's pony". In the last few weeks I've seen several advertised as "Perfect teaser and kid's pony"... sorry but I can't see those two jobs can not go hand in hand
Sadly plenty of uneducated people are going to end up with these ponies and going to have plenty of problems... I classmate of my daughter's mom got the child a pony, the pony chased the parents out of the field so was sent to the knackery - seriously chop his goolies off and send him to a trainer.
Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.
