    I just realized I technically have two mutts Dixie and my pony! My pony we're not sure what breed she is. My donkey isn't registered(her sire was) so is she a mutt?:confused:

    A horrid photo of me, but a gorgeous picture of Ayah. She was DNA tested by the breeder to be 67% Arab with a dash of Saddlebred and a splash of Quarter Horse. She'll be 7 in June and I've raised/trained her from a weanling.

    This is Chevy the once upon a time ranch pony. I have no idea what his recipe is but I was told that somewhere in his lines there is TWH. His mother gaited but he does not. Chevy is in the middle of his first showing season and we couldn't be prouder of him and Cali, the young girl who is riding him.

    And to be fair, here is his baby picture :)

    Sparky, QH/Arab cross. No idea of the breeding of either parent but they were both registered. The best way to see him is in motion. Use volume so you can catch the sound effects. :p

    Aside from my Squiggo, we've acquired a number of mutts over the years.
    Including Squiggy's half sister, Harley. She's the big beefy black one with the ostrich on her face! (you can also see a Squiggy butt in this picture)

    We've never measured her, but my dad is 5'11" for reference....
    I have some plans in the works to get a yearling off of the mare Harley came from, as she was bred to an absolutely stunning blue roan that is about 90% legs, so crossing the size of these horses with height and legs is gonna be AWESOME! Plus these horses are tough as nails!

    We also had this little paint dropped off at our place one summer, (long story short, lady didn't feed her horses, horses got out and ran around the country for a few months, horses were seized, and one of the guys who got some horses figured we needed this one and the rest is history) she was a great one to have around, despite being basically everything we didn't want in a horse, loads of pink skin, white feet, blue eyes, loud paint color.... lol.

    But she worked and was safe for anyone to ride, and even shaped up into one heck of a last-minute team roping horse when my main horse pulled up lame. My mom later used her in the roping arena and got into a bit of a tuss with a steer and after, this horse was never quite right in the shoulder, even after adjustments and time off. She got better if I just took her for a little bareback jog around the yard a few times a week, but we never really wanted to push her to rope or even just be used around the ranch for fear of making it worse... so we passed her on over to a local family for their kids to ride and torture with pink tack, braids and glitter, so I'm sure she's really spoiled and fat and quite happy there!

    My goodness all that snorting and prancing what a cutie pie!

    I really enjoy looking at all the mutts especially the Arab crosses as I'm always on the look out for what could pony possibly be.
