Okay so I have a Haflinger mare who's out of Willo Van Heck Spict. I was wondering if this is a good stallion and if the W line is a good line? I by no means would not love her but I am very curious as to what kind of bloodlines she has. Are foals out of this stallion known for conformation? Movement? I am just trying to find out more on my horse : ]

My horse Willy has the same sire. You can get alot of info from the American Haflinger registry and Haflingers are often associated by lines. A M line horse might be from Midas Touch or Magnum, a A line horse Aristocrat or Afghan there are also N lines. I don't know if you knew that Haflingers are fairly new to this country. Sorry, back to your question. From my understanding Willo had very good conformation. My horse Willy is well put together and although he has lost some definition over the winter once we are back to regular riding he looks well put together. Although I will be mainly trail riding he has a wonderful canter and a nice posting and sitting trot. He also likes to jump. Willy will just turn 7 this March. I didn't begin jumping him till he was 5. Most haflingers seem slow to mature. Willy is done growing physically but mentally he is like a teenager. They often tend to gain weight quickly so it is something on I have to keep a eye on. I quess I got a little long winded.
