We currently have 20 registered Shetlands (1- 2015 colt needs to be registered. 2 mares have probs w/ their papers ). Of those, I have 3 that are double registered AMHR minis (Bs), but 2 have overgrown their heights. The 2 1/2 Shetlands are not registered - though they both could be...
Have 2 Shetland mares (1/2 sisters, very different dams - both born in 2012) and that first mare born in 1997 that could be hardshipped AMHR - B, but for me, it's not worth it right now... I have too many other things that I can spend that $$ on.
I would have sworn that Cupid would stay under the height limit, but he's just hit 40" at the withers (WOOT! NEVER expected him to get so "BIG", ROFLOL!). His full brother, born in 2013, seems so tiny right now, but looking back at pics and measurements - they are about the same at the same ages - Rio is a little more refined than Cupid. Think these two will make an awesome pair - eventually. They are 3 years apart in age.
And here are our oldest daughter's (Skye) two daughters - I might make little horsewomen out of them yet, though right now they don't show the interest that their mom and two aunts did... Gracie is still very much afraid (very UNLIKE her mom).
Gracie with Rio the day he was born, -
Gwen (14 months old) the day that Rio was born -
Gwen w/ Rio in 2014 - she's 2 1/2, he's 1 1/2...
and both of them grooming Rio the summer of 2015
****** Meant to add - if you want to take a vacation and come this direction - our new place isn't fancy, but we do have a spare room with a twin bed. I'd love to share some driving time!! ******
