When you get one (crosses fingers for you!) I soooooo want to see pictures!!

How funny, here in Az there's lots of Haffies and Fjords are rare! I got my Fjord in Cali.


I have a haffy colt who turns two this year (although he's for sale) and a Haffy/Welsh Cob mare (photos of her in the Welsh thread). I will try to remember to add photos here sometime when I'm home (can't do so at work).

Haffies dominate (along with minis) combined driving here in Az, they're EXCELLENT at it! :)

I think they are becoming more popular here too.... I hope so! Some day, in a year or two, I would love to buy one.

I've never owned or ridden one, but in my local shows they are always a judges favorite! They do everything from driving to english to halter and just every class. There is a girl in my group who is even always sure to win the speed events on hers. And theyre SO sweet too.

I own two - one registered and one grade. I absolutely love them. Here are pics from today...



Toby on the left & Willie on the right.



Toby (registered Motley RR)

Willie (purebred but no papers)



All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

haha in alberta theres warmblood and QH(which are at totally different ends of the spectrum!), no haffies or fjordss :(
But I am thinking of going over to b.c and wrestling a fjord into my little car and bringing him home, haha.

I love the pictures everyone!

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

My barn rescued two halfies this past fall. Sadly one of them didn't make it, but the other one is cute and much loved by his owner as a trail mount.

I had never seen a halfie in real life until this past summer when it seemed like everybody I knew was getting one! They are cute, but I feel too big for them.

They are a really hardie little breed of horse. When I still lived in Europe, one of the stables I rode at had a lot of them and they were phenomenal horses. Great tempers, great work ethic and very strong for their build.
