Your state horse
Ok so I know that a lot of states actually have a state horse so I thought I would put up a little brag thread so we can all brag about how cool our state horse is :wink:
I'm from North Dakota, and our state horse is the Nokota. They are a fascinating breed and are said to be descendents of Sitting Bulls war ponies. They come in all different colors, and are valued for their hardiness and surefootedness. If you need a good trail horse for the mountains, check one out! Unfortunately they are expensive. They are also incredibly smart and will use it against you if given the chance. The only ranch in the state that sells and breeds traditional Nokota's is in a town called Linton, ND. If they weren't so ridiculously expensive I would own one because I love their spunk and their heart! But, alas, when I am older and *ahem* richer (:lol:ahahahahaha) I will own one! They are also wonderful endurance mounts because they are so hardy! They can climb very well too. If you see the Killdeer Mountains or our Badlands, you can understand why they are such good climbers :)http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi..._Stud_Band.jpg
I am from Alaska and we dont have a state horse:cry: I am in Utah now and they dont have one either. Whats up with that? LOL When we lived in Alaska we were looking into getting a horse that could live in cold weather and deal well with snow and ice and we found the curly. We didnt get one since we were military and didnt have much more time left, but they sound like hardy horses.
Being in the state known for the Kentucky Derby, our state horse is the Thoroughbred.

I'm from Michigan. We don't have a state horse. :-( But our state game animal is the White Tail Deer. LoL.
I had never thought about having a "state horse" Just looked it up... Surprise, Surprise, Texas state horse is.... wait for it.... Quarter horse! lol
I'm from Tennessee.
Do I really have to tell you what our state horse is?
Psh, Arkansas dosen't seem to have one!
I think it should be the grade. Just a bunch of hardy mutt people and
horses alike. Or maybe "linebreds", LOL!

half-alligator breed such as grows nowhere else on the face of the universal earth." - Davey Crockett
Mississippi doesn't seem to have one either :(
