Smile What's Your Favorite Childhood Horse Breed?

Everyone has a favorite(past or present), what's yours?
Mine would have to have been first an Arabian, then I fell in love with Appaloosas, and now I would have to say Haflingers! I love those golden cutie pies!

I loved little paint minis and ponies as a kid =) Can't really pick out a favorite breed nowadays, any horse that is small and bay is a win for me though

When I was younger I was obsessed with Thoroughbreds! Especially racehorses
Up until about a year or so ago they were still my favorite breed though the Norwegian Fjord has officially stolen first place lol

When I was younger I loved all horses, but had a special spot for arabians thanks to the TV series "the Black Stallion" and I really loved paints. Now I like heavier horses-particularly Gypsy Vanners (oh, that mane and tail, the feathering, attitude, and the bold paint colour of many of them!), I like Fjords, Fresians, Drafts, an bull-dog built quarterhorses (the ones that are meant to work-not the halter horses with their tiny-feet, small-heads, and posty legs. I am a sucker for black paints, grulla colouring, and buckskins. I could see myslef with (and I am sorry if I offend anyone) a dainty refined breed, or a gaited horse.

My favorite is Belgians! I grew up with them, and even though my dad tried to get me a pony or riding horse, Belgians were always my favorite and the pony never lasted long. I've been driving single and team since I was 4 and raised and trained my own Belgian when I was 16. He now is used for farmwork, hayrides, parades, etc., and is a very good boy. I have Sam, who is a 10 month old stud colt (he'll be gelded as soon as he drops). I've had him since the day he was born and he's going to be with me til the day he dies. I just love how big, powerful and beautiful they are. Although some of them are "gentle giants", I love how some of them have spirit and spunk.

I'm also in love with Brabants, the origional belgian from Belgium and plan on having two fillies and a colt imported within the next couple years and am helping to create a registery and breed standard for the American Brabant Association because currently all Brabants have to be registered as Belgians.

I have a funny story about that actually!
The first horse I ever rode was an Arabian so obviously I automatically fell in love with them. I started reading all sorts of horse books and I was certain that my absolute dream breed/color/gender of horse was a flea-bitten gray Arabian mare.
Then I moved on to loving draft horses and wanting one desperately, but Arabs were still number three, or so, on my "favorites" list.
Eventually I gave up on the whole dream breeds of horse thing because I realized that a great horse could be anything, but I still liked Arabs.

Then, a few years ago my trainer, at the time, decided that she was going to help me get a horse and she knew a woman with two Arabs that needed new homes. She knew that I liked horses with a bit more "fire" so she figured that I could at least look at them and see if I connected with one.
Well, one of them really struck me and I took her home a few days later.
Then, last year, after owning this mare for 2 years, I realized that she is literally my dream horse! She's a flea-bitten gray Arabian mare and I had totally forgotten that dream when I got this mare. It was basically God, fate, what have you, that gave me the horse I dreamed of vividly for YEARS when I was little.
She is totally my perfect match so I must have been on to something as a little one! Lol!
