    Smile Maybe gettin' new horse! Help me decide!

    Hey all! I may be getting a new horse and I need help deciding the breed! I want an easy-to-train horse and one that won't cost much money, because I'm going to buy a foal and raise it myself (atleast that's what I want to do). I really like color and I'm thinking a Paint, but do you have any other suggestions? Thanks!

    Quarter horse or Paint. Do you have experience training or someone experienced to help you?

    Ya, the owner of the boarding place trains horses. Also my dad is pretty experienced.

    I really don't like to shop for horses based on breed (clearly, that would be why I own a standardbred/quarter horse ) because you could miss an amazing horse of another breed (or crossbreed) by doing that!

    Also, I don't think of ANY horse as 'easy to train', if you want that then maybe you should get an already trained horse which I would suggest anyway.

    BUT for a nice laid back horse I would think Quarter Horse.

    Do not get a baby and expect it to be either easy to train or not cost much!

    NEVER buy for color. Conformation and temperament should be the first two things you look for, with breed and color being the very last.

    A good horse is never a bad color, but there are plenty of 'purty' colored horses out there who are nutty, conformational trainwrecks.

    You sound like a kid. Why in God's name do you think you want a foal? It'll be at least 3 years before you can ride it.

    Everyone is right, dontn buy just for color, or a colt because you think its going to be easier and cheaper.

    I always wanted an appaloosa, ( spotted like dalmatian), I ended up buying a bay TB mare

    You want to try different horses, ( so yeah one already trained) and see which one fits you better

    What were you planning on doing? Western? English?

    Ya, don't go for color, I always wanted a paint, but I got a dark bay mare with no white except a few hairs on her face(not even enough to call it a star!)

    Go for temperment! And confirmation.
    But I would recomend just buying a young horse. I wanted a foal too, but then I thought about it and that would be a boring three years without riding it, or anything.
