I feel your pain. I love short, stocky, powerhouse horses that are easy to get on, can tote my fat butt without issue, can be used for driving and light draft work and don't need 47 different feeds and supplements to keep weight on. I have always loved Fjords, Haffies, and Gypsies, draft crosses, etc. So does everyone else, apparently. The good ones cost a fortune. I am seriously considering leasing a draft mare, putting her in foal to a stallion I like and breeding my own.... or if I had the money, I'd go to the UK, buy a half-dozen Gypsies, keep my favorite and sell the rest to recoup costs. I can't afford the $5k - $10k it costs to buy even a baby. There are some really stocky, nice FoxTrotters out there, so that's also a consideration. I like the powerhouse wide short QH's, but most of those now are so light on bone, I'd be worrying about their legs all the time. *sigh*
I've never seen Heartland. Maybe I should.... but I do have a penchant for chocolate, ice cream, and Mexican food, so does that count?
