    Default Breeding a pony Up?

    I have a few question about breeding a pony up in size. First off the pony in question (assuming she stays under 14.2) is out of a 17 hand WB mare by a Section A welsh stallion. She is a long yearling now and only time will tell where she will end up height wise. She was inspected with the OLD/ISR and put into the pony book based on her sire. Later down the road when it is time to breed her, will her foals always have to go into the pony book, even when crossed to WB stallions? What if she goes Hony size? Would that make a difference in eligability for her offspring to go into the regular book? My goal would be to breed smaller WBs from her that hopefully end up around the 15.2-15.3 hand range. Any input would be great appreciated.

    I am no expert of ISR-Oldenburg...but I think they would have to stay in the pony book...at least for several generations. That is why Weser-Ems is pony and small horse. They provide a home for the small Warmbloods and oversize ponies. I am sure some ISR breeders will have more input.
