Hi yes a biscuit is a flake :) odd Americans!
Down here in kangaroo land mini ponies and horses are seen very differently.
Miniture ponies are like shrunken shetlands, mini horses however can resemble Arabs, tbs etc often Arabs. They are much finer boned animals and NOT suitable for riding or driving, they do amazing agility though. A miniature pony however can carry a small child.
What do you want the pony for?
