When my mom was a teenager she rode one that everyone called "Fidgety Witch". Total hyper psycho athletic mess, she gave my mom no less than three concussions . They adored each other, though. I have to dig up some pictures of her!
OOOOoooooooooooo, please do. I would love to see!

Sorry, but there's no such thing as a "white" horse.

I do have to agree with NBEventer, Brisco is quite a bit underweight.

Cavallo Maremmano
Italian riding horse from the Maremma, an area in Tuscany, where they are being kept semi feral. The clip shows the traditional "transumanza", a herd of mares and young stock is being brought from one pasture to another, quite a distance away. The riders are "butteri " Italian cowboys from the Maremma.

I know there is one breed you most likely haven't heard of. The Latvian horse. It is spit in 3 types - the draft horse: Massive horse for heavy works, ploughing and pulling. the lighter driving horse -nowadays the most selected and carefully bred, they are universal - they do everything from farm work, hobby riding, to grand Prix level dressage and showjumping, however, the Sports type - always improved by lots of warmbloods - HN, HL, Old, Trak, and now also by Danish warmbloods and KWPNs is better for the sporty disciplines. However, the driving type cross with sports is a good hobby horse that gets the athlethicism from the sports ancestry and the nice calm and stable character from the driving ancestors :P

Ever heard of Rusty? Ulla Salzgeber's horse? He is a Latvian warmblood. There are a few more Latvian horses in the states, but very few and hard to find, One took part in the paralympics in London, some run Grand prix dressage in Russia, and I sure am **** proud of our breed.

for just an idea
this is a 2 yrs and 8 months old Latvian driving and sports mix.
I am 175 cm tall. you can see the size already

This is the first mares older sister - 6 or 7, FAT, they were expecting a foal, but she was empty. the mare is breeding material for driving type horse.

this is 5 yr old stallion, driving type, full brother to second mare.

another driving type stallion
A sport type stallion, there are loads of imported ones, hard to find ones that are our own, they most usually have latvian driving cross sports mares that they breed to imported sports stallions to get the majority of sports horses in the country.

And this is another type driving stallion.
none are flawless, but ye.. to give you a general idea of this breed.

usually 15-16hh, nowadays lots of the horses are 165-172 cm high, colors most are permitted, generally brown, dark bay, bay, some grey, red comes from sports horses.. markings are all kinds of variations - extreme ones comes from sport mixes - no paints in this breed.

Wanna know any more? I am sure willing to try and tell you more :)

I have gotten a thread up for the Blazer Breed information. Sorry it took so long. @NBeventer and Manasquan2001, those photos were taken a few years ago too - but now he is at a much better weight.
