14 year old Haflinger. "Mister" is the old draft style and as tall as most you will find. He stands 14' 2 hands tall and I estimate he weighs 1200 pounds. He is extremely stout and strong. He was used for driving single and double when we purchased him about three years ago. I broke him to ride with the intention of him being a mount for our kids. He is a little too forward and strong for a beginner rider in my estimation however, and we now have an older bomb-proof horse for them to ride. I would rate him as a 3 with 10 being them most difficult temperament. He would be great for an intermediate rider and has enough drive to be fun for an experienced rider. I'm 6' 4, 230 pounds and he can carry me all day. I took him on his first organized trail ride this past Fall. If you were on the NISW 4-Day ride in Hanover, you saw him. He is incredibly smart and learns easily. He crossed water like he'd been doing it his whole life... even with horses immediately in front of us launching across the streams. Walks, trots, and canters. Unflappable around traffic, Loves to be groomed and washed. Stands great for clipping. Great feet and stands great for the farrier. Has very large bone and has never been lame. I have started him neck reining but he still mostly plow reins. Loads and hauls great. I can't say enough good things about him. If he were two or three inches taller or I were a few inches shorter, he'd never leave our place... I'd keep riding him myself. He turns 14 in 2013 but has had an easy life and the breed is noted for longevity. I have had numerous people comment on his awesome color. He is a unique color for a Haflinger. Kind of a dark chestnut with dapples. He is much lighter in the attached photos as his winter coat is much lighter. I have roached his mane because he has a double mane that is extremely thick but it's a silver color. Puppy dog personality... loves attention. This boy absolutely needs to go to a great home. If hay supply or cost is a concern for you, I have plenty and can provide 30 or 40 bales at a very reasonable price to get you into Spring if that helps. He gets fat on about 70% of what other breeds require.
