The PROs and CONs of owning a horse:
PROs: 1. Horses can live till they are over 25 years old, this makes them a wonderful friend!
2. Despite there size, horses with the right loving care and training, are very affectionate, sweet temped and loving.
3. YOU can learn so much from a horse!

CONs: 1. Owning and caring for a horse takes a LOT of time and commitment.
2. Horses hooves must be shod/trimmed every 6-8 weeks by a farrier, this costs a 'bit'!
3. All horses/ponies should be fed at-least a little bit of 'hard-feed' every day even if they are being spelled or are a companion horse OR if they do or don't graze each day=MONEY!
4. Buying Tack, Brushes, Rugs etc. costs. Also beware POISONOUS-PLANTS.

My friend used to have a Westfalen geld. He was so sweet, but also temperamental. I want to get a Westie too. Also how long do they live?

    Yes, they can be and are very sweet but yes they can be and are a little feisty. Need a strong rider, are primarily bred for jumping and dressage and show riding. High bred so feisty.

It really helped me on my 4H project that is due in 3 days. I looked information up about paint horses, but all I really could find were acrylic horse painting sets. It makes me mad. Everyone should know this beautiful breed of horse by now!:)

My life dream was to own a lippizzaner horse for a trail riding horse. I live in Hillsboro, Ohio 45133. Would it be possible to purchase one and how much do they cost? I was interested in a filly. That way I could bond with it as it grows up. I know that you can not ride them until their at least 4 years old. That doesn't matter to me. Just the thought of being able to have one would mean everything in the world to me. Would it be cheaper in price if I ordered a slight older one. What do you think? Where would the closest place be to me that I would be able to purchase one? I am looking very forward to hearing from you.

Thank you so much,

    Lipizzans make great trail horses! They are calm and tend to stop and look when something concerns them rather than spook and run away. They have good feet and are comfortable to ride. The mares are strong minded but will try very hard for you if you are loving and fair to them. Don't try to dominate a Lipizzan mare! She won't put up with harsh treatment! I know I have been a long lover of Lipizzans and have bred them. Right now horses are pretty easy to find - even Lipizzans. Look on for those that are for sale. Foals and older horses are cheaper. And at times there are some that are available for free from those who just want a really good home for their horse.
