Pony critique - my stallion
Here is my stallion for critique. My son didn't know how to set him up and I didn't think to have him present his left side but I'll get another photo later.

Re: Pony critique - my stallion

I like him... ALOT. Even disregarding his color. The only things I might change:

1) A bit of a lighter neck, though that could be solely because he is a stallion.
2) A flatter croup.
3) A longer hip.

I can't really tell about his hind leg conformation in this photo so I won't say.

I love his shoulder, back, barrel and head. It's one of the best shoulders I've ever seen and I love the neck tie-in and length.

Thank you for the critique. I bred him to my Arabian mare for an Arabian pony and I think her conformation corrected the croup and neck and maybe the hip too.

He's nice is he AMHR / AMHA reg and if so what is his name and pedgiree, my friend owns Ridgehaven's Cocoa who is a classic cream champagne who also carries silver.

Re: Pony critique - my stallion

Oh yes, I've seen him before. My stallion has an unknown background. I bought him from a girl who told me her boyfriend bought this colt at a sale barn and he was told both his parents were registered miniature horses but this one was too tall to register. He was listed as a buckskin but I could see he wasn't and bought him and registered him with the International Champagne Horse Registry. I have used him on several types of mares and all of the foals were little replica's of the mare but have his fantastic temperament and intelligence and more than half have his champagne color and appaloosa genes. I would LOVE to know his pedigree but I've never been able to track down the sale barn he was sold at to see if they had record of the seller. He was foaled in 2003 so I doubt I ever will now but he is making his own mark and owners and breeders know of him from all over the US

I hope to promote his half Arabian pony filly to a level that will bring even more attention to him. We already breed outside mares to him and I haven't done it yet but may check into training him to collect.

He's really nice! Nicely balanced. I would LOVE to see the mare you crossed him to....one thing is for sure-it should be short backed if the arabian is typically arabian short-backed! Nicely sloped shoulder, his backend is not square, but dang. Really nice hind end and nice topline!

I really like this pony! Lovely shoulder! He just looks nice and balanced! I'd probably like a touch more rump to balance his front slightly, but I think with more horse type ponies that isn't necessarily what you want anyway. Very nice!

Re: Pony critique - my stallion

Here is the mare I bred him to. He's 10.2 hands and she (HF Macarena, SE AK Arabian) is a little over 14.1 hands. With her is their Sable Champagne filly, registered as Layla Sparkles, with the HAHR. Next, I'm registering her with the International Champagne Horse Registry and the Arabian Pony Registry, plus the American Sport Pony Registry and the inspection is the end of August about an hour from here.

It's not the best picture to critique Macarena but I'll try to get a better photo later.

This is the closest I have to a critique photo of Layla at this time and one showing her shoulder a little better.

Re: Pony critique - my stallion

Just want to interrupt to mention that Arabian ponies are unbelievably cute. I would love to have one for driving. Ohh and you can put those little ribbon brow bands on them. :ymdaydream:

Re: Pony critique - my stallion

Aw thanks, this filly is the the product of about 3 years+ of planning.

Here is another foal by my stallion, this one is a MFT cross, a gaited appy pony colt. His reg name is Classic Star Dust. Dusty should mature 13 to 14 hands. He's just a few days old in this pic
