Kay Kay, I can live with the way you put I would think that everyone would know that minis came from Shetlands. I mean come on you are fooling yourself if you dont. I just get it alot that if you having been in it for a long period of time you dont know anything. Not just on here in general. I havenâ€™t been in the minis that long, we trained racehorses for entire life. Not telling my age though. So I didnt mean to come across huffy or anything My thoughts on the double registry, I dont know the Shetland registry well enough. But if they are under why not. I think my stallion looks just like a Shetland. I hope he stays under 34, now here is the drag of it though like said before, he was barely over in the B division last year as a yearling. So he was showing against the tall kids and yes it did suck. He still placed even though he was the littlest one in there. So I can see why people dont like showing against them. Heres the flip side if he stays under 34 as a 3 yr he will be at an advantage. So if you cant beat them join them???
