- Apr 2, 2007Akhal-Tekes...ooooo yes. I wanted one badly for a long time...until I found out how short they are. :( My feet would scrape the ground riding one of them guys.
I'm debating on whether or not to adopt a mustang. But then I have to find someone who will gentle it for me. What I'll probably end up doing is going down to the Livestock auctions in Phoenix and finding a horse there. I know someone who does this regularly, cleans up the horse and sells it for twice what she paid.
The Friesian cross sounds beautiful...I'm jealous.
The real work of men was hunting meat. The invention of agriculture was a giant step in the wrong direction, leading to serfdom, cities, and empire. From a race of hunters, artists, warriors, and tamers of horses, we degraded ourselves to what we are now: clerks, functionaries, laborers, entertainers, processors of information.- Ed Abbey

Thank you for all of your replies.
Hilary...I have just asked to join both of the yahoo groups you
mentioned. Thank you for the advice.
Jim...as far as horses go..have you heard of the Akhal-Teke breed...I
am now obsessed, but essentially, the are an ancient horse breed that
originated from the Eurasian Steppes...they are rare, and do very
well at Endurance, etc. I am currently taking lessons and leasing a
17h Friesan/Percheron/Saddlebred cross (looks just like a purebred
Friesan, black with feathers :)but in 2.5 years or so, I plan to buy
myself an Akhal-Teke.
Anyway, thank you again for all the advice, and I also appreciate
whatever other information anyone else has to offer.
Have a great day!
