    Phewey on some people, handsome is as handsome does.
    I think he looks great, nice action in the last photo.

    I never had any opinions of mustangs, till rumors abounded around here of a horse that did the 100 mile endurance ride at the local park, barefoot. It was a Mustang. No horse does that at this park barefoot. I wouldn't even go to that park, just to walk, without shoes.

    I never knew the girls name that owned the Mustang, but everyone referred to her as, "the girl with the Mustang". Saw her several times around and the horse was just a horse, 14.2 and brown, but he has a tough as nails aura about him. She got him from BLM as an untouched yearling.

    I was sold on Mustangs after that.

    According to a book I have here the Brumby is mostly a mix of British Cobs and ponies, some draft blood (most likely also from British stock), Timor ponies, TB & Arabian
    The Australian Stock Horse is a cross of TB, Timor pony, Welsh Mountain (A) pony, Arabian and the Cape of Good Hope Horse which was/is(?) a descendant of the Barb and Spanish horses.
    Makes them cousins of sorts - not much different.
    Well apart from the Timor pony blood that's pretty much accounting for the breeding of most of the general riding ponies and horses in the UK today
    Our top show horses & ponies are mainly 'mutts' and the money they fetch isn't to turn your nose up at!!!

    Here is a little history on the name Brumby and how Brumbies came to live wild in Victoria and New South Wales.

    The Brumbies that we see in Victoria and NSW today are thought to have originated from some horses left behind when Sergeant James Brumby was transferred from Botany Bay to Van Diemens land in 1806. The horses
    proved impossible to catch (in the days before every property was fenced) and became known as Brumby’s horses – eventually shortened to Brumbies.
    During World War I, many of the remounts sent over for the Australian Light Horse troops came from the Snowy Mountains region. After the war, with increasing industrialisation, the remaining horses were valueless. The gates were left open and they were allowed to ‘join the wild bush horses’...

    Brumbies in South Eastern Australia tend to mature between 13.2 and 15hh. Colours range from the standard blacks, bays, chestnuts to
    roans, paints and occasionally even buckskin and palominos.

    Many unwanted horses today are still being released into the wild, this changing the breed characteristics with each new Stallion. In one part of NSW a Standardbred Stallion was released and stole several mares from local Brumby bands. The last round up saw the Standandbred influence in many young horses. Over the years the Brumby is made up of many many different breeds.

    An interesting fact is that DNA testing in NSW has shown that the Brumbies in the Guy Fawkes Park are less than 5% inbred, in
    comparison with Thoroughbreds, who are around 20% inbred!

    I love Brumby's they are a hardy breed with not too many health issues, OP do not listen to negativity - A good horse is of no colour or breed..

    Dad will be paying for a vet check and will get pony's cancer checked to see if its advanced since diagnosed.

    Owner says that the cancer doesn't effect at all the pony and its riding ability.

    Owner says she will pay for all vet bills ASSOCIATED WITH CANCER and will get that down on contract.

    WILL also get on contract that if pony becomes sick from the cancer, than I will end the lease and give her 5 weeks untill lease ends or something like that.

    All Vet bills and medication will be payed by owner, she truly loves her pony and she just doesn't have time to ride/work it because of 2 young horses she is going to show.

    Im going to be not liked by allot of people probably because im doing this, they will call me stupid but I will get vet check and get cancer checked before I go on with the lease contract.
