Sunny probably has some Welsh mountain pony in his breeding and some New forest pony too we think. Not a pure bred for sure! He has characteristics of both breeds and he is within either size range being only 12:3hh. Just a common cross bred mountain and moorland pony and we love him loads! He can jump, pull a cart, and do several tricks. He is very intelligent and very eager to please. A darling.

David Genadek wrote: I hate to change this back to necks but after reading this the other day I went to eat lunch and saw a deer in the back yard and took some pictures. I learned in the skeleton class that I could learn to see the subtle differences between horses better if I compared the horse to other animals.  So I though I would put them up to see what everyone can see. How does the deers neck differ from the horses?  Why?

Interesting questions! I have often wondered how the hind end structure of the deer is different from the horse as I witness them springing over the road then jump almost straight up to clear a fence. It amazes me how they can jump. What is it about their conformation that lets them jump/leap upward like that? And are there similar characteristics bred into horse breeds/lines that would help a horse perform well in jumping?  Hmmmm....more to look into!
