Volunteered with a therapy horse program for over 3 years...most rewarding memory was when my client, who I had been paired with for almost a year, looked at me on my last day there, smiled at me and said "look...horsey!" first words I had ever heard from her and i nearly cried(:
Id love a Clydesdale they are so goofy! My friend breeds Peruvian Pasos and she also has a little Fresian mare...so jealous of her!
Did they have selective mutism? I was in one of those programs at a place called bit by bit.
generally speaking, different breeds came from different parts of the world. For exaple, the standard Peruvian came from peru, whilst a German Warmblood came from Germany, and was a "second breed" cross with a draft and a thouroughbred.
The Gypsy Horse (USA), also known as an Irish cob (Ireland, UK, Finland, Germany, the Netherlands), Gypsy Cob (France), Gypsy Vanner (USA), Coloured Cob (UK, Ireland), Tinker (the Netherlands) or Tinker horse (Sweden, Germany), is a horse breed. The breed originates from the UK and Ireland. Members of the breed come in a variety of colours, but predominantly are of piebald colouring and have many draft characteristics, including heavy bone and abundant feathering on the lower legs. There is no exact known history of the Gypsy Cob. It is believed by some that the Gypsy Cobs are descended from a combination of Shires, Clydesdales, Friesians, and Dales Ponies with their origins in the Romani gypsy community of the United Kingdom.
I also like Paso Fino, Fresian and Andullusian - however that is spelt.
