So, I have been watching the for sale ads to see if anything pops up. These minis don't look ANYTHING like my mini. My guy is 21 and a tank who has double the bone of minis I have seen, stocky and looks like a small shetland. When I say shetland, I mean the chubby little tanks we all knew growing up- NOT the "shetlands" that are bred today (that look more like little hackneys). I guess I like the old style mini that is stocky with good bone, a short back, and big butt. I am shocked at how crazy refined these minis are nowadays. It's absolutely not my taste at all but to each their own! Where would I look to find an old style mini? Mini Horse Sales and Lil' Beginnings seem to showcase the modern, ultra refined minis. I don't see any in MHW either. Any ideas? Can the old style mini not win in anything anymore? What about performance? Can they, at least, be competitive in performance or not really? I guess there is always pleasure driving and CDE!
