Oh he's cute! I'm not a fan of Standies or Standy crosses and I'm not a fan of geldings and I'd take him home.

I absolutely love the way he's being described as well check this out "ok he's no fancy warmblood but with more schooling he could really get up and boogie a bit"... forgetting the "T" makes this look proper Scottish! Edit: got carried away. Reading this thread is bringing back the I Want *Another* Horse itch even though I've barely owned my first ever a month! Thankfully I'm now too poor to even consider!

I agree with you @Kalraii ! The sellers seem like the type of folks I'd like to buy from!

He's absolutely adorable! I'm in the same boat with y'all, but if I had the money and lived in NZ I'd finally have me a palomino in my pasture! ;)

Cute! My dads supposed to go to a conference in New Zealand at some point. Hmmmmm

I took a look at the sire. Hes a nice A lined stud, with that sporty type build the A line has. I was in Kentucky once and visited a farm there and met a really nice A-line stallion. Hed been crossed with a TB mare and that filly was so nice that if I had space in my suitcase, Id have brought her home with me.

He's such a cute gelding! If I lived in New Zealand, I would snatch him up. I could see that there's a sale pending on him. Whoever has bought him is going to be one lucky owner!

That stallion looks like a sport pony. I'd be happy to have him in my herd. Given the coloring I think I could sneak him in and tell DH he forgot how to count.

I don't think we actually HAVE Saddlebreds over here, so I didn't even think about that! Funny.

He's so adorable... exactly the kind of horse I want to be able to save up for one day. I love chunky, solid horses. Just double his age and experience, shift him down the other end of the country for me, and he'd be perfect XD

Plus around here in Amish country, you can't throw a rock without hitting either a Standardbred or a Haflinger at a horse sale :P
I'm really happy to hear this, since I'm moving to Ohio. So the chances of me finding a Haflinger as my eventual second horse in Ohio are pretty good then? I love them, great little horses.

OMG, you will be SWIMMING in Haffies if you're in Ohio, especially if you are within any reasonable distance of Amish country :) But besides the Amish, there are a lot of serious breeders out there who have bred haffies as sport horses - taller, more refined, less heavy bone. I keep considering going out there to look for a driving horse for myself.

My last gelding came from Ohio, but he was a pull from the Sugar Creek auction. Beautiful horse, beautiful movement, but just way too much horse for me. I needed a semi-retiree who knew their job and didn't mind standing around if life got crazy for me, but wasn't going to kill me if I couldn't ride/drive for two weeks :P
