I am genuinely trying to learn something and someone is "offended" because it might be in the "wrong" place. I made a post once asking about the experience of breeders with the Boones Little Andy bloodline. I just wanted to know what had crossed well with it and how it worked for them in their program. Well....it was moved to the "photo" forum of all places. I never did understand that...but "oh well"....about a week later someone posted asking something very similar and it was left on. Ruffian, perhaps you are one that believes that your minis have absolutely "no shetland" in their background. I happen to know that they do....especially your stallion....he is a Buckeroo and Buckeroo has a "strong" shetland background...so it is all the same. Just venting, but kind of ticked. This is petty" The reason I asked if it should be on the pony forum is that it is about a Modern Shetland Pony. There was no pettiness involved. Some pony people do not read the miniature horse forum. Some miniature horse people don't wish to read about ponies. The specific forums were created so those who wanted to read about the different breeds could choose as they wanted, without having to scroll through threads that did not interest them. The photo forum was created so folks like me with slow computer connections could bring up the forum without having to wait for lots of photos to load. Before we upgraded it would take hours or not come up at all. I've been in Miniatures since before AMHA began. I KNOW what their background is. I also know where they have gone in the last 30 years. I apologize if you feel this was being "Petty" by having it put on the correct forum, as that was not my intent. However, if the moderators had not agreed, it would not have been moved. The title still directs you to the thread, but it's now on the right forum. "The actions of a few miniature people actually does the miniature horse registry more damage than all the good that decent "good" people have done. And you wonder why "real big horse people" think that minis are a joke. None of the crap that goes on in this registry would never be tolerated in other registries." Whoa whoa whoa. All I said was that it should be on pony forum. All of a sudden I'm "Damaging" the industry??? I beg your pardon? You're right - I don't agree with the influence of the Modern Shetland/Hackney on the Miniature horse. That's My opinion. It had nothing to do with this topic, but apparently some folks think it did. This is a beautiful liberty video of a beautiful Shetland pony. Had nothing to do with anything else, but it IS OF A PONY!!! Rock On Mare!!!
