i only do because she acts like an opinionated pony, lol. She sort of looks like a pony and has a floofy mane as well... but she's 15 something hands tall! Real ponies tend to be a pain, so I only call her a pony when i'm mad at her

IndigosBlue - My horse was supposed to be a pony but grew to 15.3. He is a Pony of the Americas, and his parents were registered, thus making them short. I sort of just started calling the rest of the horses that piled on the herd ponies, aswell.

RD11 - I've heard that, too. So far I'd say it is true. We just picked that mare up and brought her home. So I am officially a Curly owner. Pictures aren't uploading right now. :/

My daughter was very allergic to horses but wanted to ride so we decided to try a curly. We found one in Oregon (we're in CA) online and had the breeder send us a baggie of hair. We tested it on our daughter and she had no reaction so we went up, tried him out and he was great. He ended up getting too big for her and she outgrew her allergy after a couple years but he was a really nice gelding, easy to train, nice bone, great personality. He was a straight curly-didn't have the curl except in his mane so he had to be gelded to be registered but he did have the hypoallergenic trait. We got him from WindyK Curlies in Monmouth OR. Don't know if she's still in business or not.

I have a bashkir Curly and he is awesome! He is an extreme curl, so no mane and a little tail.

I was looking into horses when we lived in Alaska. I wanted a horse that could deal with the extreme cold in the winter, but nothing to big and the curly fit the bill. We didnt end up getting one tho. They are suppose to be really hardy, easy keepers from what I have heard.

I've had Scarlet home for a few weeks, and she fits in great. Everything I have heard about curlies has seemed to be true. We actually got her from Don Mead, the brother of Joe Mead. Joe Mead was actually VERY influential in the Curly breed. Scarlet is a beautiful example of what a Curly should be. She has a very strong body, shorter back, large, hard hooves. Her personality is absolutely delightful. She is such a smart horse, and has the patience and trainability of my ideal horse. She has a medium curl, with a relatively short mane. Her forlock is really long, and her tail is of decent length.

She is a gorgeous girl, and I cannot wait untill she is started under saddle. Her trot is so smooth, but boy can she really go.

They are definitely easy keepers, and I believe Joe Mead actually started out with the Curlies in Alaska. He had them work all day with ease, even apparently in those harsh winter days. I read, qote, "Joe had 2 Quarter Horses and 2 Arabians drop dead in the same conditions the Curlies survived." [-A Tribute To Joe Mead]
