Interesting I wonder if it's a type of immunotherapy. Your curly has minimal allergens but just enough to expose you without actually triggering anything, so your body is building up some immune response. Very cool!

He looks so sweet!
He is very sweet, just sore in the hind end (massage therapy thinks it’s due to thick gelding scarring) which makes him very clumsy, and he’s lazy and doesn’t like to be ridden.

Yeah, I see he's an easy keeper, the "pregnant gelding" in that first picture says it all lol He's very handsome, what's his name?
BNC Andee, he was a stallion until 10, then gelded. I bought him at 16 :)

They really are the most wonderful breed. Very gentle and smart.

Not to insult the mare at all... but there are some beautiful Curlies here in Canada! The black horses are curly stallions in Ontario, the bay is a mare for sale that I’m waiting on better pictures for :)

Those are lovely!! I have only ever seen two IRL both driving horses, and then the ones that get posted on this forum!

I don't break horses, I FIX them!

Saw another genetic Curly today, she’s straight coat so I have to test on her for a bit to see if I’m allergic or not. I don’t think she’ll be a fit because of the amount of training she’d need. Thoughts on her confo? Her legs looked REALLY short to me in person but she had good movement.

Mare
5 year old
~14.3hh
Halter broke
Totally green

This is what my friend's curly Fox Trotter looks like during shedding season.

He doesn't loose his mane and tail, as a matter of fact he has a very full mane and tail. I don't know if they are a separate mutation from the other curlies or what. He is also built like a gaited horse (which he is) and not quite the same conformation type as the other curlies shown.

Just thought I would show off another curly. In the winter time there is no doubt he is a curly! Summertime he would pass for a regular horse, maybe just a few ringlets in his ears and at his fetlocks.

Cute! Oh yeah, Andee easily sheds an entire extra horse worth of hair come spring! The birds love it haha

It’s not a different mutation, just presents in different animals, differently. No different than how some horses have thick manes and some have thin :) but typically, the more “severe” the curl type, the more they shed out their mane and tail. Andee has a son that complete sheds out his tail (literally no hair on it) and mane - except a teeny Afro in between his ears, and he was only a half curly! haha

The first Curly I tested on was named Goliate, a palomino and he was like a “princess pony” with his luxuriously long ringlet mane. Really a stunner!

Sorry for the multi-quote, I didn’t know how else to tag people on the forum *blush*

Do any of you lovelies have a critique on the second mare I posted? I’d be super interested to know what you think (even though my untrained eye wasn’t sold on her and I don’t think personality wise she’s a match).

Thank you!

I think she falls into the same boat as the first, nothing special but no major problems. However, if you're already apprehensive....

The bay mare above looks promising, of course a horrible picture, but she looks pretty decent and obviously has some training. Have you checked out the first mare in person?

Sadly the first mare and the bay (as with most curlies) are not within driving distance of me. So I wouldn’t be checking them out unless it got to the serious side of purchase on one of them.
