............An EXMOOR Pony!!!!!



Ok so I don't talk much about ponies on here but for about 3 yrs I've had this obsession with the Exmoor breed (think like how much Renee loves Filas ;) ).

If you want to know more about them read the link, they truly are such amazing little ponies!!


Anyway as of today I have an Exmoor on loan!! He is called Rocky and he's a 8yr old gelding, around 12 hh (no worries they may be small but they are the hardiest little things and he can easily carry my weight, even though you get many 'horse snobs' who think otherwise :rolleyes: ).

He has got so much character but I love him already! Pics will be coming on Wedsnesday I promise :D.

We ended up getting a Conna/bred . Felt she needed a larger pony and bought a yearling . Father was Night Lark ( thouroughbred ) . We hoped he'd be about 15 1/2 hands , but he went over 16 ! Beautiful !! We broke and trained him and he won many State Championships . The most fun was going to the National Connemara Shows in St. Louis where they accept 1/2 breds . He'd win every class but in the line ups would be put back ......he sure didn't represent the breed and we understood !
