Hi Horse Pals ~
In honor of Snickers and our Horse Pal, Elizabeth, we are going to highlight the Haflinger. I love learning about new horse breeds and hope you enjoy this post.
Fact #1: The Haflinger is an old breed of small horse that originated in the mountains of the Austrian Tyrol. The name comes from the village of Hafling, part of Austria prior to the end of World War I, but now, located in Italy.
Fact #2: The Haflinger is a small but powerfully built pony that is around 14 hands in height and is Chestnut in color with flaxen manes and tails.
