Morgan horses are spirited, but are they jumpy and highstrung? I am looking for a first horse and I am afraid of horses when they are highstrung. Thanks.

    Well any horse can be high-strung, but Morgan horses generally aren't too high-strung. Other good ones are Quarter Horses and Paint Horses.

    It depends upon the type of Morgan family the Morgan horse you select comes from. I have a 'Show' Morgan and this type is spirited, sassy, proud yet stubburn and defiante. She can be a handful if you are hardhanded or give poor cues in how to work her. She is more like a performance horse. A friend of ours has a 'Working' Morgan and that type is easygoing, lighthearted with a willingness to be your companion. It's this type of horse which most persons envision owning. They are kind of like the Paint horse or maybe even a Quarter horse. But, please check out what his/her lineage is before you commit yourself to the Morgan horse. I love our 'Show' Morgan, she is alot of work and full of sass but she is well worth the time and effort put into her.

    Any horse can be high strung, I have a 4 year old quarter horse mare that hasn't been ridden in over a year because she got injured terribly while running in the field with my Uncle's horses. They caused her to kick a trailer and her hoof came half off, she was on stable rest for months after that. Now her hoof is healed except when I get on her, she bucks. So um...I guess my point is, any horse can be high strung or aggressive or both. But my suggestion would be a cross-breed, maybe a Morgan, Clydesdale mix? I have one of them and she is amazingly well behaved and talented, she's also great for beginning riders, she's 17. Try looking up cross-breeds and tell me what you think! I hope this helped!

I love horses! My friend has one but she is a real dark brown american saddlebred. I am not allowed to ride her because she is a wild horse.

    How can a saddlebred be a wild horse if some one owns it, or is it just not trained? I happened to have a saddlebred-quarter horse last year and he is amazing but do you know if there would be a difference in the way he walks? hope you reply!

    I am not sure about that question but I have to tell you I totally agree how is a horse wild if some one owns it? - alex ponke

Appaloosas are a wonderful breed. Please be aware that Appys are prone to ERU (equine recurring uveitis) and have a tendency to start losing sight as they get older. I rescued my Appy when he started going blind. He is now 28, completely blind and doing very well. He is field boarded and has adjusted so well that many people would never know he can't see. I still ride him on short trail rides and he does great as long as he is with another horse. I love his rascally personality and calm demeanor. Don't know what I would do without him.

I plan on getting a baby appaloosa but I'm only 13 and have to pay for it myself. I'm so happy except I don't want to pay so much for something I may not enjoy. Would someone please tell me if this is the right choice or if I should go for something else!?

    Appaloosas can have good temperaments. It depends! Other good horses are Quarter Horses and Paint Horses.

    definately how lucky. it is a once in a life time oportunity for a 13 year old, im 13 but im getting an appaloosa next year when i am 14.
  • bob ahaha - 2014-04-11
    I have one they're so cool very, good at pole bending get one it's cool!
  • Alli Erbeck - 2014-07-13
    They are very calm and a good calm ride. I'm 14 and have my own. I have no experience with male Appaloosas. But I have a female and she is low maintenance and always ready to ride. I'm not sure if it is common in others, but mine does not like when other horses are behind her, but she is paired with my miniature horse and is fine with it. Be careful!

    appoloosas are good jumpers too

We have friends who had a rescue Percheron, they got to the point where they could not care for their animals and since we have a retired Belgian mare, Belle, we agreed and took K.T.. K.T. is a beautiful black Percheron with a white blaze on her forehead. Her back right leg is slightly messed up so we can't ride her, you can only notice when she runs. We were told there was a chance she was pregnant, but they didn't know when she was due. It was hard to believe as she was very thin. She filled out beautifully within 3 weeks. On June 24th K.T. gave birth to a beautiful baby girl....my grandson named her Piper. Momma had no difficulty giving birth, she did it all by herself. We had K.T. in a specific fenced in area so we could keep a closer eye on her.....well she must have wanted some privacey...she swam across the creek during the night and had her baby in the early morning. When we found them the filly was still damp! Even tho we'd only had her a couple of months she loved and trusted us already (it's mutual!) and let us pet the baby and check her all out. Perfect. The father was a rich copper colored quarter hourse. Piper is a beautiful tan suede color with a cream colored belly and chest. Her feet are black as are her tail and mane, she also looks like she has black eyeliner. Sweet disposition, and spoiled....she follows us around the pasture like a shadow. My grandson is 2 1/2 yrs old, she is his, they will grow up together learn to be partners. Thank you for letting me ramble on. Just love all 3 of our girls. Piper was not K.T.'s first baby but since we are unsure of her actual age we are not going to breed her again. :)
