I believe she’s genetically very close to the south end of one of the north bound steeds.

Thanks for the post. I am Choctaw and have been watching the “comeback” of the little Choctaw ponies for a long time. Traditionally, the Choctaw used them for pack ponies probably more than they rode them.

Their “pedigree” is more interesting and diverse than Elizabeth Warrens, though.
