Favorite Horse & Pony Breeds

Attempt to sorta rank...well, most of them, based primarily on the photos in "The New Guide to Horse Breeds" by Judith Draper. (Lumping the color-based "Types" in with breeds because I see no reason not to.)
I love ALL the horsies and ALL the pone.
Inspired by Mallory Pike, the Dream Horse, Jack Shepherd, & Tanner Greenring.
