    He's beautiful. I have a pony with about 1/4 hackney and she is fantastic. Very, very smart, and I have never seen an animal with more endurance. You can't wear her out.

    Virginia Bred - Oh my, that is so true. It is really showing ignorance when someone mixes up produce and sire, and "out of" such and such stallion, eek.

    Crosscreeksh - No. Just NO. How does that make a horse "uphill"? Have to agree, that's just as bad as putting the horse on a hill.

    Did you describe that behavior to the parents yet? I'm unclear on that. Meaning, beating the horse in the face with the reins?
