The horse was named Figure not Justin Morgan.

    The horse's name was indeed "Figure", but because the horse changed hands many times, he became known as the "Justin Morgan horse" in 1796.

    Yes, his original name was Figure, but later he was called Justin Morgan.

    Yes it was named Figure but then it was renamed after its owner.

How old does a mare have to be so you can breed her? Someone told me you can breed a mare/filly at ONE(!!!) year-old. This sounds cruel. But if it is true could someone please tell me? Also, would breeding a (healthy) light 15 hand high horse to a 17 hand high + stallion produce a to-large foal for the horse to give birth to? Thanks for all replies.

    A mare can come into season as early as a year old but usually two. It is risky to breed her at that young an age as they are not completely grown and developed untill the age of 4 or 5 so it is not recommended that you breed a mare before the age of 4 or 5. The hand high size of the male versus the female is not the only consideration when determining a mate. If the female and male are the same build, slender, full grown it is probably find. However, if you are breeding a heavy large boned sturdy male at 17 HH+ with a slender fine bones female at 15 HH, it is probably risky. So it isn't just how many Hands High, it is the build - the breed.

    So I wanted to breed my (pure) arabian 15hh mare to a 17.1hh WB stallion, is this OK? Thanks...

Hi, my name is Quinn and I'm 13yrs old.
My mom and I are looking to buy a Quarter Horse at a livestock auction and I would like to know if there is a way to quickly tell
(without a ruler) how many hands tall a horse is. Also, I am 5 ft 1, how many hands tall would that be?

    15 hands high is 60 inches so that is just 1 inche shorter than you are. It is 4 inches to the hand so if a horse is 60 inches high - it is 15 hands high. If it is 18 hands high than it is 72 inches high. 4 inches to the hand. OK. Good luck and have ever so much fun.

Wow this is helpful!! I own a spanish mustang but i bought him at 7 yr so he was used to people although untrained (now he's trained jumper, by me). I'm planning on getting him a companion to train and do Extreme Mustang Makeover with :) I found the bits on feeding REALLY helpful!!!

    They are enormous but they are so gorgeous and yes they are friendly. Gentle giants - and in this case a real giant.

I just got my first Fjord a few weeks ago, she is 23 and one of the most foward and powerful horses I have ever owned, yet she is graceful and light on her feet. She is very intelligent, sweet, kind, and a bit willful, but she makes riding so fun! I wish I had a Fjord years ago. I was mis-informed 25+ years ago that they weren't very nice horses....I should have checked around with other owners after that comment, I feel I've missed out all these years of having these wonderful horses. I am very grateful I have one now! I will own this breed the rest of my life, I couldn't be happier.
