I was wondering if AI was allowed in Shetlands. I personally can see the benefits of breed improvement that AI would allow as far as not having to send a mare across country to pair her with an excellant stud, etc. I have never been sure why any breed would not allow it. Anyway, It would be ideal with Ryan's mare as we really dont' want to seperate Ryan and Cana due Ryan's already strong attachment to Cana. If it is not allowed we are going to have to get creative Fay "It's amazing what the outside of a pony does for the inside of a kid"
