Hi all - I sent Coralie (fairy princess pony)'s hairs off the Texas A&M to learn a little bit about her ancestry profile. I thought it would be fun to take some guesses!
Want to play? Rules
1. Check out the breeds that can be tested for by the lab at the link here - http://vetmed.tamu.edu/media/1862177/89838anestry.pdf
(Lots of common breeds are too crossed for them to test for. So, for example if you think she is mustang you may want to guess one of the Spanish origin breeds.)
2. Feel free to check out pictures and videos in my journal here: https://www.horseforum.com/member-jo...s-pony-817013/
3. Reply on this post with your top 3 breed picks!
Winner gets bragging rights. Hints
6yo, bay pinto, 13.3h but hasn't been sticked recently. Very pony sized! Petite, but leggy.
Supposedly somewhere from the South/Midwest? Ended up at auction in New England - not even sure which one. She has a scar that looks like a barbed wire scar which isn't used around here.
There are *rumors* of her being some sort of Paso/Paso Fino? But no evidence of that and she isn't gaited. The seller I got her from just listed her as a paint cross pony. I think the person that got her from auction might have felt she looked Paso.
Although she isn't gaited, she's shown some very floaty trots where her front lifts very high. She had my trainer wondering some sort of Saddlebred.
My guesses are:
1. Welsh Pony
3. Colombian Paso Fino
