Haflinger, Maybe?
OK, I have "Acquired" a new member to our family. I'm thinking Haflinger what do you guys think? His coggins from a Louisiana Auction House says Palomino QH, but then again my Missouri Fox Trotter's Coggins says Black and White Paint and he's a registered Fox Trotter, so you really can't trust them!!
He's got a serious ugly haircut, but is a sweetie!! My horses have beat up on him all day. He drives and rides but is pretty rusty on the riding part. This is my hubby's "project".

I also need a new name for this guy. It's in yall's hands! Help!!

Looks like a possibility to me. He certainly doesn't look a quarter horse:P

Yeah i def would say he is one to just because they way he is built and the way he looks :)

Hmm, it's a possibility. I don't see much qh in him. :?

ahearn 05-18-2008 10:30 PM

EXACTLY!!! I don't see any QH in him. He's very stocky, just under 14 h and weighs close to 900 lbs! He's very strong.

OK, anyone with a cool name? He doesn't have one as of now. I was thinking maybe Gunner? Don't know. I'm not set on it so I need more ideas.....

Come on guys! HELP!! He needs a name! I've gotten some but I need to take a list to my hubby today.

I don't have the knowlegde to guess his breed but as for a name he looks like a Darrell to me. That was what came to mind when I first looked at the pics and I couldn't shake it. :?

Isn't that funny how people see horses and just think of the name? I really watched him yesterday and he's quite comical. I wrote in my other post about how he runs around the pasture and gets the other horses stirred up and running, then he goes into their stall and eats their hay...just a little mouthful at a time, then off we go and run some more. He's a little stinker!

I think the mane is throwing me off. I guess I need to think about how he'll look when it grows out and he's just handsome.

My husband has his list far, it's Benjamin and Sargeant. Neither one of those is doing it for me!

Dobbin, maybe? I dunno, I'll try to think of some today.

ahearn 05-19-2008 10:07 AM

I like it! Adding it to the list. A DEFINITE possibilty!
