    This is my 7 year old 15.1 hand Haflinger gelding Sonny. He is my heart horse and everyone at my barn absolutely loves him and his personality. I love his long mane and that flowing tail but I just can't get that forelock to grow. He looks like moe from the 3 stooges.

    Jolene. Old photo, but one of the few times I was able to get her massive mane/tail completely clean.

    I got Jolene as a 2 yo as a companion for my mare. She was really downhill at 3, so I only very lightly started her. She has since "evened up".

    I am glad there is a discussion going on in this thread - along w the wonderful photos everyone has posted. It would be nice to have a "haffie owners" thread! I only ever had QH's in my adult life, until my appyX mare. Haffies are very different. Jolene is a little tanks with a pony attitude - and can seem overly sensitive on the one hand, and impervious on the other. They are fast learners when they feel up to learning, if my girl is any example. She is a caution.

    Haffies should be on the small side- between 13 to ideally under 15 but are bred taller these days.

    Which is a huge shame, as is the fact that they are looking more like Arabs as well.

    Missy May- they are all that. Mares tend to size you up and know your weaknesses but once you earn their trust- they will do anything for you. People don't understand that about Haffies. Because they are friendly doesn't mean they will trust anyone.

    I agree that I like the drafy type Haffie but I can understand the need for a sport pony type. That is fine. People have their preferences. Like working dogs, there are always the working style vs the show style of a breeds- the same but very different. That is the beauty of breeding. What is nice is that they are both respected by the registry and not as anal as dog registries!!!

    But there is a breed standard for Haffies, and they should stick to what the foundation of the breed was. LOL, again I am somewhat of an anarchist to some, I would far prefer to keep the Haffie as a small compact solid little dual purpose horse who can pull, or be ridden. If you want to have something taller and lighter then out cross, but leave the breed as it was.

    I have to wonder if those who developed the breed in the first place would recognize this as a Haflinger



    It is a very attractive looking horse, but to me, just not a Haflinger....
