My Haffie was imported from Austria, she was the original heavy body 15 hand style horse, Quiet personality, loving, intelligent. They are easy keepers but always looking for more to eat. DO NOT give yours grain. Grain is not good for Haffies.
They can get nervous easy when they don't know what you want, but mine seemed to learn easy.They do well in cold weather, let her grow her winter coat in and you shouldn't have to blanket her. I didn't have to shoe my gal either. You will enjoy her. In Austria they actually keep the Haffies in stables that are built right onto the house, they are considered part of the family. We tought Mella to fetch , and she gave huggs and was very affectionate. We were her humans. Sadly we lost our baby to an unknown illness, she left haunting hoof prints in our hearts that are not healed yet.
