This breed of horse has had a rather obscure beginning although there are accounts of them for the last 300 years or so in Europe. Of course, all horses whether they are Clydsedales, Arabians, Paints, Shetlands, or Miniatures are the same species of animal. Technically speaking they could interbreed. As such, each of the different breeds of horses are a result of selective breeding for specific traits over many generations. Miniatures are selectively bred for their small size while other breeds such as Paint and and Apploosa are selectively bred for distinctive color patterns.
HAVE A GREAT WEEK EVERYONE!!!
