We used to have a curly, back when my daughter was very allergic to horses and he worked out very well.

Ended up selling him because he grew to be a really big boy and was too big for her at the time and because my daughter outgrew her allergy.

He was quite the character, loved his double mane. He was a straight curly so didn't every lose his mane/tail.

What do you have?

Oo great I've at last found some one I can talk curly too. There are not many over here in the uk, around 14. I've had my boy about 18months and he is great. He is classed as a dunn, but he grey really. He's 14.3, and we hack everywhere, which is what he loves best, and were doing some serious schooling at the moment and hoping to do some low level dressage maybe this winter. What did you do with your curly? Do you have any pictures? . Im going to attemt to try and post some pictures. I've just jointed the forum and its great loads of information on here and everyone seems really friendly, I really like the cc section on here too. He gets curly in the winter, but does'nt loosed his tail or much mane either really. Thanks for reply.

I don't think this worked but it's a video of me when I was trying out Sid, our curly. The computer w/ all our pictures of him crashed, haven't recovered it yet!

Yay! It actually does work :) He's by Warrior's Big Sioux, a huge, grey stallion.

He's fab, really like his colour how old is he, and what do you do with him.

In the video he was three. He's about 8 now. We did trail riding, showed him in halter classes (cleaned up!!) with him but then sold him as he got too big for my daughter. We got him for my daughter who was very allergic. She was about 9 at the time and he was about 15 hds and slim. He grew to be about 15.3 and 1500 lbs, way too big for her so we sold him and he now does mostly western, drill team stuff, great horse for a teenage girl! He was considered a sooty dun...... but we just called him a buckskin. What do you do with your curly? There aren't that many in the US either. When we bought Sid there were about 3500 of them, had to travel by airplane to go see him and ship him home!
