  1. Horse Breeds, Registrations and Brands
    I have a 15 year old haflinger gelding, and his weight varies a lot. One day he’s at the perfect weight and then another day he’s either under or over weight. Is this just something common with the breed? Today I noticed that he is looking underweight, I could see his ribs a bit. I haven’t...

    I bought a team of Haflingers. They arrived at my ranch in Chiloquin, Oregon, from the breeders farm In Michigan, on July 5, 2010. They were the team from Hades. I couldn't catch them unless I put feed in their stall and closed the door. They were nervous about being touched during grooming...
