I recently "fell into" owning a Baskir Curly and am finding that they are um, a bit different, than other horses. I've found stuff on the breed and I understand that they are rather rare but, I have not had much luck finding any actual forum/discussion about them.
My guy is on the big side at 17hh and rather drafty. He's got all the great qualities of a Curly but in a "Venti" sized package. *can you tell I'm missing my daily latte?
He has a dash of Arab in his Curly genes, the combination making him wicked smart. Example: I locked him and my Walkaloosa out of their stalls for some cleaning the other day. The Walkaloosa came and kicked/knocked at the door. The Curly just started opening the latch. LOL (it's a new barn to them and the first time I've closed those doors.) I'm careful not to leave my cell phone in the barn for fear that he'll call the local farm and feed and have some oats delivered!
Anyway, I'm just wondering if there are other Curly owners currently on the forum and if you've got any stories you'd be willing to share. Could there possibly be enough out there for a sub-sub category?
