If you could own any breed of horse...

what would it be?

I have a hard time deciding, but I think my top pick would be a Holsteiner.

drool: Hilltop Farm, Inc. - The Complete Sporthorse Center

My second choice I think would be an Irish Draught.

I have always loved Mountain Pearl: irish draught horse, Fox Hollow Sport Horses Mountain Pearl RID

My favorite breed is always changing. Lately, it's been Gypsy Vanners. But - I wouldn't want to have to keep their feathers all groomed out, so I will just look, not buy.

I really just want a horse that is not very tall, but stoutly built and smooth gaited. I'm a short fat lady!

After 20+ years in horses...its still a arab a saddlebred or a combo of both.
A young solid bay stud colt. Young so I can be the one to bring him along and a colt...well theyre just special.

Akhal-teke, no doubt about it.

My fantasy breed would be a Freisian-- maybe a baby of Bente D

My realistic horse would be a colored thoroughbred or a Hanoverian.

Irish Sport Horse - grey, 16.2hh+, preferably a mare.

Friesian. Or something really drafty but small enough to ride, like a Haffie or draft cross.

I am also really fond of flashy frame overo Paints with blue eyes! But I would want a Paint with good bone structure. One of my pet peeves is fine bones and small feet. Unless it is an Arabian, they are tough little horses! But something with big muscles should also have good bone, IMO.
