Algonquin, Icelandic Pony in White House Elevator

Theodore Roosevelt owned a family pony named Algonquin, who was famous for riding the White House Elevator so he could visit his friend Archie who had the measles.  Was this pony a Shetland or an Icelandic?  You can judge for yourself by reading the research I posted on my new page listed at the top of the banner.
