I don't understand this comment. If, as many people say, this is JUST a height breed, then why forbid AMHA horses?I absolutely agree that it should be closed to AMHA horses and I wish they had never passed the Falabella rule.
Stormy - I totally agree!! If it is ever to become a breed, then all hardshipping in all registrys must be stopped. If that's not the intention, then open it to everybody.If Miniature Horses are to be a breed stopping ALL hardshipping is the only way. Leaving it open to shetlands only makes sense if the plan is to turn it into the miniature shetland registry (which seems to be happening anyway!) but not if it is to be the AMHR.
