  3. Horse Talk

It's set in a semi-medieval setting and horses are a big part of it and I have several various questions about breeds, and size, and breaking in. For example, if a small girl were to be given a...

  8. Horse Breeds
    Hi everyone, I have had TONS of opinions on my horse Shadow as to what breed he is. I had bought him as a pure bred Dutch Warmblood, which at the time I really didn't think he was. So from there, this is some of the possibilities I have gathered from opinions. Currently, we are sure he is a...
  9. Horse Health
    So I'm looking to adopt a Percheron mare and I have a few questions! Can a Percheron live comfortably on 1 acre of land? What kind of temporary structure do you think is appropriate to shield her from weather until I get my barn built? And would a standard adult sized rope halter fit her...
