There's 3 different ponies out in the field where we used to keep them.
Spirit is a mustang and Montana is a Appaloosa draft horse, Montana is a pretty big horse, at least 1000 pounds. She even has to wear an x larrge halter.
No, if your horses are 14 and 14.2 then they are ponies. That's just the way they are. XD It's not a bad thing, it just is.

Nope, it is 14.2 hands. Therefore your 14.2 hh horse is a pony. 'Tis just the way it is. A pony is not a bad thing, it is just a term.
