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.

I live in the Pilbara, in Western Australia would a Haflinger be able to take the hot weather here? It gets up to 45degrees nearly every day in summer, coldest is around 18degrees in winter. thanks :)

    I don't know why not as I think horses are pretty flexible with weather changes. I live in a desert, and there are all sorts of breeds kept by people here.

    Hi we have 3 haflingers, one we just got yesterday. We bought a pair and they are wild and crazy! We have tried to ride them only to be thrown off every time. They are very skittish we kind of gave up on riding them. They fight and have to be seperated because all are dominant. We are going to try to tie them to the tractor and make them walk slowly, hoping to try to calm them down to ride, wish us luck:) beautiful horses.

I really love horses and I have really have been looking at how to take care of 2 paints. Me and my friend take care of a brown and white paint named dreamer and cream. Cream is the tan and white one. It really helped me, great website! Well, I have to go and check on the horses, bye!

    My grandson has a beautiful black and white paint horse. His name is soldier boy. I am so crazy about this horse but I am afraid to get too near him. He has never given me any reason to be afraid, I just am. I love to give him carrots and apples, but I always give them to my grandson to feed to him. How can I not be afraid to feed him these treats? He looks for them when he sees him coming. I love it but I am afraid to get too close.

I recently acquired a 3 or 4 year old Percheron/Paint cross. I do not know exactly how old she is, she came from an auction. The man at the auction knew her mother was a gorgeous, very large black percheron mare, and her grandmother was a very large grey percheron mare and that her father was a paint and knew the lady who she was seized from (She was rescued from a dry lot) but we were forbidden from contacting the lady. My girl is between 14 and 15 hands right now, her ankles are very large in comparison to her feet and her rump is about a hand taller than her withers. How much taller do you think she might get? Keep in mind that she was malnourished which may have stunted her growth. All comments are greatly appreciated! I just want to find out as much as I can about this beautiful girl as I have started many many horses, but never a draft of any kind. Thank you!!

    From its parentage, Percherons range in height from 15 to 19 hands high while Paint horses generally stand less than 16 hands high. So it could be anywhere from 15 to 19 hands high, but my guess is that it will probably be closer to the 15ish height.
  • Brenda - 2014-01-07
    From what I have learned she is as tall as she will get, but will get bulkier. Around 5 years of age percherons will mature.

    I, too, rescued a malnourished Percheron at the age of about 2. We have come a long way! He is almost 17 hands and beautiful! The correct diet and the room to run has made such a diference with him. I think Max has topped out and will not get any taller but he is thickening up quite well. The vet said his muscle mass would not be as thick as a well nourished foal would have been but he is very thick and has the beautiful thinck percheron neck so I think it all depends on how they are fed and the conditions they are rescued to. Good luck, this big boy of mine is the best horse I have ever owned and I have 26 on my farm!

My cousin bought a Morgan mare about 4 years ago. He has been gracious enough to let me ride her any time I want. She is very high strung and the most amazing animal ever. She's in her mid 20s, but you would never know she's that old. She is not a horse for a novice as she will take full advantage of someone who does not know what they are doing.

    My family had a Quarter Horse as I was growing up. He was fun to ride but very quick to turn, even when galloping, so you had to be prepared when turning, or get tossed...lol.

    Get a quarter horse. I ride Western, and have three Quarter Horses and they're all loving.  Great Barrel Racing and Pole Bending Horses. They're bred to ride Western unlike The Fresian which is more of an English Riding Horse.

My first horse was and is a Percheron. His name is Maximus. He's 16.3 and I would say about 1800 lbs. He turned 9 this year, and he's at a ranch in Colorado with his family. I left there to take work somewhere else, but I miss him so much. I saw him at Christmas and he was so kind and receptive to me...after he was done eating of course. I can hardly wait to spend time with him this spring and summer. I'm so proud of him and he knows it. He still is amazing to me. All horses are magnificent creatures. I think I'm going to get a tattoo of his head on my other shoulder. Thanks for letting me talk about him.
