Does anyone have one? Are they good horses? What is their personality like? Are they as fragile health wise as I've been told? What about conformation? I know that they are bred down shetland ponies mixed with a freak TB, I would think that this would mess up comformation pretty bad.

I love your signature, Brighteyes. :)

I have heard they have many health issues due to poor breeding down and of their size. Horses are meant to be larger animals, typically they have weak bone structures also (dont quote me btw) due to their breeding.

I don't own one tho ;)

Falabellas are miniature horses that are from the Falabella farm. There is a falabella registry that registers pure falabellas and falabella blends (part falabella). I think I have 6 minis that are falabella blends. They're just like any other mini horse, they all have their own personalities.

There are some very nice Falabellas out there but also some very poor ones. There is a lot of myth surrounding them but in reality it was a really great marketing ploy. I have found that bad bites and crooked legs are really dominant in this bloodline so you have to really look at the horse. They are predominiately appy

I have one and luckily mine is good conformation wise including teeth. Unfortunately there are lot of bad ones so take your time if you want to look for one.

My little man is very sensitive and has alot of allergies including being allergic to shavings, dust, ryegrass and any type of midges. He also have inflammatory bowel disease so yes I think its like getting a thoroughbred you have more chance of something going wrong than if you bought say a x breed or a cob.

Here is a pic of my one 'rolex'
