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've just adopted a retired 7yr old gelding thoroughbred- just retired in Oct 2013. What I need to know is how do I retrain him to be a regular show, trail, and everyday riding horse? I also need to know how to change his diet to be fed twice a day and thrifty

    It sounds like you need some in-depth help with both training and feeding of your new thoroughbred. I found this site, Training Off-the-Track-Thoroughbreds, which looks like it has help with both of those issues. Hope it helps.

    The site Off Track Thoroughbred is a great site!!!  I have a retired Thoroughbred too, he has been with our family now for almost 4 years.  We love him sooooo much!

I have just bought a Percheron gelding and every time I look at him, his noble manner and bearing takes my breath away. He is the first Draft Horse I have ever owned and I can only hope to do right by him.

    I am just in the waiting for my little guy to be ready to leave mommy and come home. I am excited but nervous, and feel the same way hopfully I do right by him. Plan to show him and wow what an awesome trail rider he will be.

    Debbie, I am taking delivery on a Percheron gelding also. My first draft, finally a horse I feel small with. He is a liver chestnut, though, and everyone keeps telling me he has to be a cross as they don't come in that color. But with no papers, I can't prove pureblood.

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.

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 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.
