Incorrect. AMHA only registeres up to 34", but AMHR has a "B" division that goes up to 38". Anything taller that IS a mini (out of mini parents) is an oversized mini. Shetlands are a breed, must have shetland parents to be a shetland (although there ARE a lot out there who are registered BOTH shetland and miniature... any shetland who is small enough can be)
