Is Ireland over producing the Connemara Pony?--- Posted by Jacqui Lewis

 Is Ireland over producing the Connemara Pony? Are breeders being irresponsible? Are the Ministry at fault by including the Connemara pony under the REPS Rare breed scheme?   [sent by Jacqui Lewis]

  1. From the other side of the world my opinion would be that too many ponies are being bred from too few bloodlines. Seriously try and find a prospective broodmare in Ireland which does not have at least one cross of A Owen in the pedigree, never mind the other overused lines. This opinion does not answer the original question put by the OP of course.

  2. Many thinks so, very few dare to say it.
