I don't think it's actually official yet. Looks like it should pass shortly though. Known for their endurance and ability to "carry a man all day".

Hmmmmm....I didn't realize states had specific breeds.

I do know that in 1977, the horse became NJ's state animal. But I've not found anything that speaks of a specific breed.

Of course I had to google it and it seems that only some states actually have a state breed. So for's just...the horse.

Hmm, I'm not finding that Indiana has one but if we did, I would imagine it would be a Standardbred because of Dan Patch.

That link that I posted above shows the 10 states who have horses as their symbols. Not sure if it is the definitive list but alas MHFQ, Indiana is not on it.

I think you need to start lobbying!

I'm kind of surprised that no one has to be honest. They have a "Dan Patch Days" festival every fall in Oxford, you can tour his barn, food, music, parade, etc.

...... Wth.. Georgia doesn't have a state horse..but we have some pretty freaking lame things..Get ready for this.. We don't have a state horse..BUT we DO have a state opossum.. An opossum, really!? Wth!? *face palm* lol and it's not even a NORMAL opossum it's a "Pogo Possum".. Even spelled wrong! Geez..Whoever decided we needed a Pogo Possum instead of a horse should be shot..

ETA - Oh my God..It gets worse.. It's not even a real opossum..It's a comic character..

"A friendly cartoon swamp creature comments wryly on politics and philosophy. Walt Kelly, a cartoonist and movie animator, visited the Okefenokee Swamp in 1942 and was inspired to draw some "swamp critters." Pogo ‘Possum appeared in comic books in the early 1940’s and became the star of a nationally syndicated newspaper comic strip in 1949. Declaring "We have met the enemy and he is us," Pogo poked fun at the vanity and shortcomings of people everywhere. The General Assembly voted Pogo the State ‘Possum in 1992."

We do have a few cool things though.. Our state flower is the Cherokee Rose, I have these growing at my house..Our state wild flower is the Azela, which are beautiful, but toxic to horses..My Nana has huge Azela bushes at her house..Our state fish is the Largemouth Bass..

And..last funny/kinda cool thing.. Our state fossil is the Megalodon Tooth, the big shark.

Mtn I'm in NW AR. In the ozark national forest!
In the "mountains", lol!

I'm going to start breeding Ozark Mountain Horses.
Cross between Arabs/Qh's/Morgans/Andilusians. Take that Arkansas! Just kidding of course, but they would be BA!

Oregon tried to get the Kiger Mustang (Kiger Mustang - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) adopted as the state horse but it didn't go through.
