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.

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.

I have a 22 year old Morgan mare who thinks and acts like a 6 year old! She's still doing 50 mile Endurance races and LOVES to jump! She has been unbelievably healthy and can be a real sweetheart when she wants to be. I've been looking at other breeds for my next horse, but none are as versatile as a Morgan!!

    I'm thinking about adopting a 25year old x show jumper Morgan gelding. From a rescue. In a way I'm worried he might be too old. I plan on doing trail riding. Thanks Charlene

I have loved horses all of my life and I came across 'Gabriel' purely by accident. My neighbor and I were out hitting the local yard sales. One place we stopped at had a pretty Palimino on the back property. I commented on her. Lynn the owner said I have one for sale. It was not the Palimino however,it was Gaberiel, a 16yr old Chestnut Arabian. Lynn threw my 11yr old son up on his back and led him around the yard. Gabriel was so passive and friendly. My son had taken riding lessons over the summer but is still very much a beginner. Yet, Gabriel (Gabe)was so gentle I thought this might be a good way to continue my son in riding. To make a long story shorter ~ I told my husband (who was out of country)about him and he said get him. When I said I was scared he asked why. I told him a horse is very time consuming. He told me not to worry about it and to go ahead. So I made the jump and bought him. However, though Gabe is 16, you would not know it. Put him under sadddle and he is a different horse. The first time I got on him he went to bucking and kicking up his heels. Scared me to death. What happened to the sweet passive horse I bought?? There was no way I could put my son on him. I didn't give up though and soon I could simply give a verbal correction when he would start acting up and he would calm down. However, I realized this is not a horse for my son so I would have to be the one to become his owner/partner. I have developed a wonderful friendship with Gabriel, it took a little time for us to learn each other but he aims to please. He has learned to trust me and me him. I look forward to getting up everyday and spending time with him. I loose time at the stables and minutes turn into hours in a flash. My husband now fully understand my concern of how time consuming a horse can be ~ he has become a horse widower. Gabe is a wonderful horse, friend and companion. He has a wonderful disposition and friendly to everyone. When I think of how Gabe came into my life I believe we were ment to be. He is truely a gift from heaven.

I bought a Morgan at an auction for my daughter when she was 10 years old. She liked to hang around the race track. A lot ofpeople hit her up for a race. She out run every horse. A lot of people tried to buy him. She liked to barrel race . He couldnt change leads at the barrels. I bought her a quarter horse. He could change leads but was not near as fast as the Morgan. She then gave the morgan back to me. I never been on a better horse. I kept him until he died of old age. If I ever get another horse it would be a Morgan

    It really depends on many factors. What type of horse are you getting? How old is the horse?
  • Anonymous - 2013-11-07
    just try and feed it different things and see if it likes it but i recommend you look the horse up before hand.
