Re: horse owners?

She wants a farm horse to move stuff, ride some, and a SHF horse, to use. Doesn't have to be a prize. Just a sturdy all around horse, to add to her donkey and other critters.

Re: horse owners?

I have watched the Video several times and see what you are commenting about.

Anyone else find it really odd that they never allow a swing by the camera? Everything is at a distance and a very specific distance. Prior to reading your comments that raised a weary eye.

FYI: Appaloosas are great horses... But, you really need to ride them regularly and if you plan to trail ride them, it is even more mandatory. They 'can' spook easily and that can turn into a nightmare if you're not intone with the horse's ability to slow rapidly, turn quickly and run the other way like crazy fast.

Talk to the Larger Animal Vet in your area and get some insight as to who you should be working with, plus you can build a relationship with someone you will be seeing fairly often.

Also, we only stalled a horse at night.

Appaloosas aren't known for spooking. Pretty solid breed.

But any horse can, I laughed because you forgot to mention this sideways jump of ten feet.

Re: horse owners?

Yeah, we are going to pass on that pony I think. Looked up reviews of their farm on the better business beuro(I can't spell that lol) and there are some significant customer complaints, all responded to by the farm owner in a semi antagonistic-"blame the customer" kind of way. No thanks!




For non racing horses their prices are way high for this area too. Figured with what all they were claiming he knew he might be a good choice. Oh well. Another thing we see a lot of for sale around here are weanlings. What are the pros and cons of starting with a young horse and training them myself? I don't claim to be a pro at training equines, but I've worked with Butters some, getting him used to carrying a pack and going across water or over cracks and crevices in paths.


Here is a link to an add for weanlings. There wasn't too much locally on hoobly unfortunately.

The above farm is out by where we buy hay.

Re: horse owners?

Pros , like you said you can train them how you want. Price is usually a good deal. They do t have hidden health issues.

Cons, you can't work them very hard, or use much weight till they are two year old, or you will cause shin splints, and leg issues. It's hard to tell how they will turn out. But you do know they are sound , so you just have to keep them that way!

I hav no experience with this breed. But all but the second , look good. I thnk I like second to the last the best. But you would choose on how they seem to you

Re: horse owners?

Parents that are well put together & make sense as a pairing will usually produce the same in their foals. Obviously itís more complicated than that but definitely look at the parents & their line to see what you are getting into. Training them for basic stuff isnít all that difficult & there are plenty of resources online to reference. A young horse can definitely be a crazy ride & experience though lol

Bone development takes many years. My horses knees didnít close up until he was in the 4-5 range, which is quite late, so we didnít do any hard work like constant jumping until then. I actually bought my guy as supposedly full grown in height because he was old enough but he surprised me with a whole other hand after he was home lol. 2 year old isnít old enough for hard work yet. Itís why xrays tend to show chipping & other damage in ex race horses because they tend to be too young for the impact they go through. While you can work them at that young age it should be light with no major repetitive impact to the growing legs.

Re: horse owners?

This one is nearly a year already, could start on ground work right away. Different breed tho. And a colt. If the choice is male or female with Butters being an intact male, would a filly be the wiser choice? Or should I go with a colt with the aim to have him gelded in the future?

Re: horse owners?

This is not a healthy horse! Too thin, probably full if worms, body not put together very well. Noooo
