Nick, go and pick you one out! They can make some great little horses. I've had 2 and they both turned out amazing.

ETA: If you don't have a horse at home already, you might want to get 2 just so neither of them gets lonely .

The second one is 15.1 hands, I am wondering if she is big enough to comfortably support me.

As you can see from this pic with my ex, I'm not a little guy, I am 6'1" 260 lbs. (I was a lil heavier in the pic, she fed me good! lol)



I am figuring by the time I had a saddle, 60 lbs, and saddle bags, 40 lbs, a rifle canteen and other kit, would be looking at about 360 lbs on her back.

Not sure she is big enough but she does look pretty strong.

The first is only 14 hands, but I figured she would make a good pack horse or a good "girlfriend" horse. Because can't date a girl who won't go riding with me, but I know not all of em are going to come with their own horse.

I tell you what, it's not the height of the horse that matters. IMHO, I'd be more comfortable loading up that first one because she's got a nice short back and a big/thick barrel. That second one is sure pretty, but she(he?)'s really small around the barrel and the back is longer.

This guy's got a nice short back and big barrel and he's taller...AND, he's only 2 so he'll bulk up and probably gain height over the next 2-3 years and end up being a really nice stout guy

Or this girl, she's really compact and stout looking. And, at 14.3 at only 2 years old, she'll likely get at least a couple more inches before she's done.

I had a list of the ones I liked.
But I'm too lazy to do that much copy and pasting.
I WANT THEM ALL.

And I bet they are smart.

I AM IN LOVE.
