These hardy, good-natured horses originated in Austria as the result of a pairing
between native pony mares and an Arabian stallion. From these beginnings, the
Haflinger evolved into the versatile, golden horse we have today.
My family and I have raised Haflinger horses on and
off since I was a toddler. When we moved to from Austria to Canada in 1986, we had no idea that it would take us 10 years
to start over! However, we now have a stallion and several mares.
I am hoping to have my own farm in a couple of years, and I will use Alert's
daughter and one of the other girls as my foundation mares. I can't wait! In the meantime, I help out however
I can with my family's farm.
