Estimation of the market for Curly Ponies in Europe.
25%-50% of children and young people suffer from some kind of allergy, asthma or hypersensitivity. Around 7% suffer from horse allergy specifically. In Europe there are around 7 million horses. To be very restrictive, can we assume that 1% of the horse population is kids' ponies. That means a potential market of 50000 hypoallergenic ponies in Europe. Even if only a fraction actually can and will buy a Curly Pony, there should be plenty opportunity to sell curly ponies. And if you want to offer riding lessons or theurapeutic riding with hypoallergenic ponies, you will be the first in Europe to do so.

Bucky's first European offspring was foaled summer of 2008, *Pennsylvania Dream (Penny), which we have kept as riding pony for our son. Penny was the smallest curly foal ever in Europe.
The year after we got *Carolina Dream, a full sister to Penny, which sold as a foal to a family in Norway. We also got a unique pair of medium size ponies, out of our larger mares. Those are *Washington Dream and *Wisconsin Dream.

Bucky was then sold to UK and produced several foals there before being sold to France.

Snow, sun, fun, a Curly Pony - Can it be any better? :-)

Now we have been through all sections, which is showing on hard surface, showing by hand and

We are waiting outside the arena to go in for the final appearance and receive the judging.

And we are waiting...
