Its sad that some breeds have become so rare. I sometimes wish I could say I own a breed no one has heard hehe. All the horses so far are beautiful almost make mine look boring.

My two horse Apache and Sammy are my world
along with our dogs Patch and Bear.
But I will always love you Jimmy R.I.P

I've always wanted to get a rare breed of horse, but I obviously would never be able to afford anything that isn't a grade horse of one of the general American breeds, (Appy, QH, Arab, TB, etc.) I would love to have a horse imported from Europe, though. It just seems like theirs so many beautiful horses over there!

I've heard of a rare breed of horse called the Wilbur Cruz, or something of that sort. My aunt has a friend who lives in Arizona who has a couple. Aparrently there are only about 200 of them. I could be wrong, but that's just what I heard.

The Wilbur Cruce horse is a strain of Colonial Spanish horse. They were mission horses kept pure for generations and were rescued by the ALBC and separated into breeding groups. I actually just helped rehome a WC mare, she was sold by the man who bred my horse and then taken back because she was being abused.

CS horses are awesome. And they're not expensive at all I bought my girl for $600 the highest I've seen them is $4500, and one for $10,000 both vet very well bred well seasoned and shown. Youngsters are usually 600-750 and older horses usually sell for under $2000. There's a reason they're called the "poor man's Andalusian"

We had a Bavarian Warmblood. He is sadly passed away now, at the ripe age of thirty, but we had a black buckskin gelding. Very, very lazy, but also very quiet and smart. Sultan would slowly come to a stop if you lost your balance and wouldn't move until you were righted again. Us kids used to cling on the side of his body and try to get him to move and he never did. He stood about 16 hands and had huge hooves. He was almost draft horse in build but could move like an Arab.

Well, here in South Africa, we have an indigenous breed of pony known as Nooitgedachters. They're not rare in South Africa but I doubt any of them exist outside of the country.

They're a really hardy, indigenous breed, can live out all year long, have strong hooves, great, loving personalities and can do almost anything you ask of them. They can compete in Dressage, Show Jumping, Hunter classes, Gymkhanas, Showing classes, Driving, Working Riding classes - you name it.

Here are a few of the pictures of some of the Nooities at the Stud (rider's faces have been blurred out as they're not all me) - the little mare in my avatar is also a Nooitie.

I have a Pottock, also known as Basque. Still semi feral in the Basque region of France/Spain.
