I really love horses and I have really have been looking at how to take care of 2 paints. Me and my friend take care of a brown and white paint named dreamer and cream. Cream is the tan and white one. It really helped me, great website! Well, I have to go and check on the horses, bye!

    My grandson has a beautiful black and white paint horse. His name is soldier boy. I am so crazy about this horse but I am afraid to get too near him. He has never given me any reason to be afraid, I just am. I love to give him carrots and apples, but I always give them to my grandson to feed to him. How can I not be afraid to feed him these treats? He looks for them when he sees him coming. I love it but I am afraid to get too close.

I have had the honor of keeping, Dawn, a 14 yr old mare since she was 4. I have had horses, most of my life. Several types, and this Caspian Lady has captured my heart. She lives with 4, large, Quarter horses, and has no problem getting her share of anything. I have a question, does anyone know why she shivers when she eats, when the temp goes below 40? Only, while she eats.

Hi. I am a 59 year old woman that has own horses for over 45 years. After falling off of me OTTB a few years ago I have lost most of my confidence when riding this horse. I do not ride him often but will keep him forever. Now I am looking for a Haflinger gelding to live with me forever. These horses appear to be just what I need for a perfect trail horse. I prefer a western trained horse between 8-15 years old. I also have an 27 year old Arabian that need to be retired. I live in Maryland and would love to find another forever friend. Anyone know where I could find him. Please contact me. Thanks

We are considering buying a Norwegian Fjord that is very sweet & even (somewhat) broken but has foundered in the past. Should this cause some concern? Is he ruined? He is probably close to 7 & hasn't been ridden in five years, so how much would be a fair price to offer?

    We have an opportunity to adopt a 2yr old gelded stallion tb. He's beautiful and seems sweet. Will he be a good pet? We're not planning to ride very often. Is there a tremendous amount of medical and grooming care required?
  • liv - 2011-02-27
    Aww good I'm getting a thoroughbred in a couple months any down sides?
  • Hannah - 2011-06-13
    Do the 'Thoroughbreds" have to be race horses? I would prefer to just go rising on trails, that sort of thing. And is it possible to get the Appaloosa color in a Thoroughbred? I heard that they do come in that color. But I am not sure? Thanks.
  • Charlie Roche - 2011-06-13
    Thoroughbreds don't have to race to be happy and love you. I would imagine most don't just beautiful to appreciate and ride.
  • macey - 2011-09-05
    I wish I had a horse you are so lucky.

    I just adopted a 3yr old track trained but never raced. Yes he is on the pricy side however, he is also VERY sweet and has good manners. Most of their energy that makes them hard for those of us to handle, is energy obtained by injections or feeding hot food. You would never know my TB was track trained. He is very mellow.

    I've had my OTTB for 5 years now! He did race and won a few and best of all we got him for free. He is the most gentle sweet animal I have ever had. We let him be a horse for a year or so and then started giving him a job. My 18 years old daughter had an accident on him last year were she fell off him (not his fault, her's) and lacerated her liver. Creston Cat was very sad that she go hurt and mooped around until he could see her again. 2 weeks after her accident I took her up to see him. He perked up big time, I swear he had a smile on his face! She was not supposed to get close to him because of her injuries, but she could not help herself. That horse knew she was still hurt and stayed perfectly still. He let her pet, hug, and walk around him and he did not move at all. We were so afraid of that because on bump and she could have ended back in the hospital. Those two have the tightest bond ever! He even lets her put a hula hoop over his head and on his neck. He loves his work outs....

    My family had a Quarter Horse as I was growing up. He was fun to ride but very quick to turn, even when galloping, so you had to be prepared when turning, or get

    Get a quarter horse. I ride Western, and have three Quarter Horses and they're all loving.  Great Barrel Racing and Pole Bending Horses. They're bred to ride Western unlike The Fresian which is more of an English Riding Horse.
  • Emily - 2014-09-01
    It depends on what you want to do. Friesians are popular for dressage and because they are beautiful. The quarter horse may not be as majestic-seeming, but they are incredible versatile, willing, and sweet. Quarter horses are one of the most popular western horses, and should you want to try a different discipline, your horse will gladly try it with you. As a quarter horse owner who does 7 different disciplines, I definitely say that they are the best of the best :)
  • Sadie B. - 2015-01-21
    I live on a ranch where we raise Quarter horse. A quarter horse is definitely the way to go in my opinion. They are going to be better in the western show ring. If you are going to be doing English then the Friesian would be better. Also if you are on a budget the Quarter horse will be cheaper and easier to find or at least where I'm from that's the case
