Billy Appaloosa gelding for sale £1000 He is a lovely natured 13.1 pony he is 9years old,I have had billy for a year and to be honest it’s a sad sale due to not enough time and my experience not being my strong point.Selling due to lack of time to reach her full potential. I would like billy to go to a loving caring experienced home where he is going to get the work and schooling he needs, he hasn’t been in work much in this last year either. He has a fantastic temperament, personality and bags of potential I have a 3year old and he is amazing around her and other children in my family.

I am super lucky to be able to own one of these horses. My horse is 4 years old and 16.2 hands. He has a wonderful shape and is absolutely gorgeous. He is smart and carries many of the typical behaviors of trakehners. We do everything from trails to eventing. Super amazing breed and I recommend to anyone.

I grew up riding Walkers, and loved them, and the smoothness of their gaits. My wife & I own mostly Quarters, from champion cutting and reining lineages, but we have one full Walker, and one that we were given that were told was a Walker/Arabian mix, though we have since realized that she is most likely all Arabian. Anyway, we have never had any issues keeping weight on our horses, except during the winter they might lose a little. We do not have much for pastures, so we keep a couple round bales of mix grass, and grain. But, our Walker is a constant battle with up & down weight. A friend, who has Walkers, said to add alfalfa pellets to our graining, and it has helped, but the issue is still there. He is only maybe 7-9 yrs old, & thinks he is my baby. Of course, so does 'my' 2 Quarters, and I think they are all my babies. But, even if the others are out running around the pasture, or following my wife through it, my walker stays with me, especially on the days when I am stuck in my wheel chair, which seems to be more & more. I am just not sure what to do about getting his weight maintained. For those that have Walkers, can you please help? I have contacted both the breeders Assc., & the Natural Walkers Assc., and have not had any help, yet. Because of my spinal cord & brain injuries from the Army, these horses are some of my best friends, especially the Walker. And, I agree. I do wish people would educate themselves, before they swallow their feet, legs, etc. The foot issues were made illegal, begining with the issues of nailing weight into place, as the nails helped increase weight, but also cause the horse pain, so they would lift higher. Any kind of mistreatment is not tolerated, and they look closely for it at every show, as my friends, who do still show their Walkers, have expressed to me, and others. But, that is the biggest probem with our nation, as a whole, is people believe what they are told, whether correct or not, rather than expend the energy to find the truth out for themselves.

    What a great story about your Walker, your Quarter horses... and you! Love all the great information too. I may try and do a newsletter post with your story, and maybe we can get some folks with Walkers to answer your questions about weight. On a personal note... my family took care of a Walker for a summer when I was a teenager. so I got the awesome experience of riding and caring for this breed of very cool horse!)

    Dear Stephen, I just bought my first horse last Mothers Day '14'. Which is a Tenn Walker .he is 8 yrs old He is healthy and so gentle with my grandson (5)He eats Total Equine 1-2 pds a day and all the hay he wants plus pasture grass. And he put on a nice weight, try that brand and see. Loretta
  • Dexter Thompson - 2015-07-16
    Feed him some horse feed called straight it is 17% and keep him some hay and tie him out on grass for at least 2 hours a day and keep him out of the sun , because the sun burn fat off horses. Worm him out every month I had the same problem but since i start doing that my Tennessee Walker is bigger than ever and also buy something call muscle up give him two scoops a when u feed him if any question feel free to call me 6019382873
  • Dexter Thompson - 2015-07-16
    When the other horse are running he rather stay with you because he made that special bond with you
  • Merida DunBroch - 2016-01-31
    Simple. Just go to Bob's Feed or Tractor Supply or something and the right feed for them. Another thing that worked for my mare, Fancy, was keeping her out on grass. It worked for Princess, Nellie, Jack, Midnight, Merry, Smoke, and Mystery too.
  • Sandi - 2016-03-02
    If your young horses are not maintaining weight and you have tried what you think is every thing contact your local Equine Dentist, could be the animal needs to have some dental work done. Of course I am also assuming you have kept your worming up to date. After owning, showing and trail riding for nearly sixty years this would be my opinion of the weight problems.

    To put weight on your horse add half a cup of sugar and a whole cup of canola oil to his feed every day. When desired weight is achieved cut sugar to a quarter cup.

I really like horses and this is my fav one, but too bad I can't have one. This looks like the one that I had when I was little. His name was dustey... I loved him. I was about seven when my family got rid of him.

I bought my daughter a friesian gelding of 4yrs and F2 registered however, how does one go about keeping them black all year round. I cannot find any info regarding this matter on the net. Can someone answer this for me please.

    Best way to keep your horse black is keep in during the day and turn out during the night.. another alternative is putting on a fly sheet which is light ( won't get too hot etc ). Wash down sweat areas if weather permitting or a quick rinse.. as sweat also lightens the coat. Hope this helps.
  • Jean - 2010-08-17
    Many owners revert to keeping their Friesians in during the day and only turn out at night. Some feed some types of supplements that are supposed to keep the color black. But if you truly love your new
    Friesian
    love him for the horse he is and not what you want him to do for your ego. Let him run and play in the light and avoid over feeding and over supplementing this breed. The most striking coats are seen in the Friesians that the owners have allowed to move freely with companions and plenty of space. When the winter sun comes he will return to his lovely color.

  • Jennifer - 2010-09-08
    It is the sun which causes the coat to turn red, so you can help to keep it black by them wearing a fly sheet with sun protection built in. I hope this helps.
  • Raven - 2010-10-24
    You have to keep them in during the day and only let them graze at night. Sun during the summer months are a black horse's enemy. Also use shampoos that are designed for black horses. Hope this helps.
  • dennis - 2010-10-31
    my question to u is looking at a friesian cross 15 hh 1100 pounds 9 yrs old. do u find it to be expensive to own rather than a regular horse.. the guy selling in ny said no diff than owning a regular horse. is this true... shoeing feed etc, thanks dennis
  • Fe - 2011-01-07
    Hello, I have owned Friesians all my life and never have I had anything but black.
    Keep them rugged in winter and summer also (Obviously a lighter rug) shade in the sun and they bleach easy. Once wet rub down with a towel to get most of the wet off. Sun and wet is the problem of changing the coat colour! Hope I helped.
  • Naomie - 2011-01-15
    He is getting Sunbleached.
    Put a uv-protection sheet on him and he should go back to black in a little bit. =D
  • Audrey - 2011-08-14
    Some friesians are jet black naturally, others fade during the summer. If it's that important to you, be sure to buy one that won't fade. The majority do, however, and who cares? It's the health of your horse that matters most. Besides, the judges don't care about fading, so it won't score against you at the keurings.
  • ashtyn - 2012-09-21
    Hi I'm Ashtyn. I love horses. I ride them and enter shows. I have some questions please email me thank you
  • Catherine V. Cruz - 2015-03-23
    In the summer, my mare Vanje (Friesian) can get slightly brownish-red from the sun and sweat so I add about a teaspoon of paprika to her grain to keep her black. And bathe her often due to sweat (1-2 x every 2 wks). Hope this helps....
  • Dori - 2015-04-28
    There is an item called black knight, it works wonderfully, expensive but takes all the red and brown out turning your friesian pure black, look it up on the website, you will be happy you did.
  • sanuella - 2017-01-16

COULD SOMEONE TELL ME IF 'APPIES' ARE GOOD JUMPERS PLEASE?

  • Charlie Roche - 2012-01-27
    Yes, they are good jumpers and in manycase they are trained for racin and jumping. hey are a fairly light horse. Now, if you re looking fr a horse that jut does competitive jumping - possibly you would want o keep looking but for a companion, disposition, raciing, ridding ad jumping this is a greeat pick.
  • brookie - 2016-03-30
    the are very good jumpers but they need love and good training
  • raelee garland - 2017-03-24
