I have a 4 year old Heflinger Mare
They do like to put on weight!
This horse looks very good to me, they get such a nice winter coat.
I doubt if she is 1100 pounds
more like 800-900
my wife rides our pony, and she weights around 165 plus the saddle.
I paid alot more for mine, $2000
she had papers, a showe history, and her sire was a grand champion.
These horses are very smart, and may take advantage of young or inexperienced riders.

I have lots of video of our 4 year old, who looks much like this one... we are very happy with her!
p.s. as far as your kids, my 8 year old daughter would rather get on a quarterhorse for a trailride than her pony.
Shes been bucked off twice by our horse. BUt their relationship continues. There are two other Haflingers where i live, and both of them have onery dispositions.. Good LUCK
