    Foal
    <3 Bashkir Curlies <3

    I have been reading up on, visiting and loving this breed for the last year. Still lots to learn but man, I have never met a more level-headed, and sweet natured breed as a whole.
    I thought I would never be able to own a horse due to allergies. I then learned of the breed and went for testing at a local breeders barn. For the first time I was able to hug a horse and put my face in his mane and had no reaction what-so-ever. Amazing!

    I saw one thread for them, but it has been inactive for a very long time, so I thought I would revisit this breed and hopefully find some experienced Curly people, and maybe introduce a few more to this wonderful breed.

    The other curly forum was also in the gaited section. There isn't really an appropriate sub forum for them so I just followed suit. Would you suggest Draft Breeds instead? Because that seems even less appropriate, seeing as at least some curlys are gaited lol

    Some curlies are gaited, though not many.

    There are, in fact, gaited Curlies ;) Like Ponyboy said, they are not overly common but they are around. My mare is a Curly/Arab cross, and she has the shuffle along with the foxtrot. She is the best all-around horse I could ask for. I am planning on breeding her to a gaited Curly stallion for a 2013 foal. The breed lives up to their standard of being "gentle enough for a child, strong enough for a man."

    I live in western Canada, so along with being hypoallengic, friendly and intellegent, the fact that they are really hardy and have more red blood cells than other breeds makes them perfect for cold temperatures and high altitudes. Most of the curlies in my area come from one breeder and quite a few of them are gaited because her stallions are gaited and throw gaited foals more often than not.
    Your mare is beautiful, what's her name?
