Haflinger critique

Please critique. Tell me what I'm missing.

This is what I know.

Breed: Haflinger
Age: 5
Height: appx 13.2
Weight: appx 1100 lbs
Training: Broke to drive and ride. Has been used on trail rides and moving cattle.
Asking Price: $800
Reason for selling: They responded to my ad looking for a haffy other than that, I don't know.
What I'm looking for: I'm looking for a horse to be able to ride through the winter. Use to pull my daughter around sledding and something that my children can ride during the summer.

Aww! She's cute!
She looks healthy and happy. Maybe needs to lose a little weight.
She should work for you just fine, as long as she has the right personality :)

I think she's adorable. Nice thick build....maybe a little chunky but being a small draft, that's to be expected. If she's got the right mind for it, I think she would make a lovely little pony!

Worth going to look at! Price seems very reasonable.

Hoping to see her at the end of this week. So we will see.

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.
Visit my blog at Digital San Juan 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.
She's 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

Confo critiqu:
She is back at the knee and a little bit straight through her hocks but otherwise I would say she is fairly good. Certainly For what you want her for nothing that would put me off.

Breed type critique:
She has a very typey body (if a little bit fat), however I would say she is quite light of bone for a haffy

For what you want her for go and have a look at her!!! Try her she could be perfect. If you were showing in breed shows I'd say no but you are not so go try her!!

She looks like the haffy I rode, same height and everything. I find they are happiest learning something new or working. The get chubby quick, and pick up bad habits so quickly, I personally have never met a haflinger that doesn't need tune ups at least monthly to remember there manners. Other than that they are usually good. Her price (at least around here) is good exspeically for her size no longer are 13 hh haflingers placing well in the ring since the world standard of height has changed to over 15hh!! Have fun.

Does she look like she's actually 13.2 hands tall? Hope that guy is big otherwise she might be too small for me.
