My new equine to the herd!

Yes, I am nuts, LOL! I purchased another horse! A 15'2 hand, Haflinger, Gelding, that is 6 yrs old! I only say I am nuts, because I have to board for now and I live too close to the city. Sooo unfortunately board is super expensive around here. Especailly, for now 2 horses! BUT, I am planning to move to NC this Oct/Nov and I needed a hoof holder in the trailer for the ride down to NC for Enzo! Plus, I purchased 17 acres in NC and Enzo will be super unhappy to get there and have NO equine friends to hold his hoof, or to play with him. And it will be super for me to have another equine partner I can ride for now!!!!!!! While Enzo still takes him time growing up mentally and physically!!! I have been always partial to haflingers. I was trying to find a larger one. I really didn't need 15'2 hands, but that is what this Haffy was. I also love the white blaze most of the Haflingers come with. Unfortunately, this boy does not have any white in his face. But he still was just soooo darn cute and such a nice quiet horse for me! I am super looking forward to my next Parelli journey with this guy. I still have not named him. The breeders call him Joe Joe, but I am really not in love with that name, LOL. I am thinking of naming him "Kaspin"? So does anyone know how to add 2 pictures of horses on the top of my blog???? I get to pick up my new boy this SUNDAY!!!!!!!!!! YEAH! Pictures below are from the breeder.

Love, Janine, Enzo and Kaspin?


  1. Howdy Janine! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your new horse! What a beautiful creature he is. His conformation is very square and well proportioned.

    Can't wait to read about your move to your new location and how your herd settles in. It's great, living with your horses. You're going to love it!

    Nancy, smiling and just a teeny bit envious (I love new beginnings!)

  2. Awhh, thanks Nancy! I am really looking forward to my new journey with this boy! But, I am not so thrilled about entering tick, fire ant, and spider world in NC. But I'll just have to get used to it!! And the weather will be soo much nicer to keep horse. No frozen buckets for months on end, no 10 inches of snow and more to take care of, and no more wearing 10 layers of clothes and feeling like the child from Christmas story, LOL!!

  3. He is so cute!! I love Haflingers, but I am just a teeny little bit bias ;) I love my Haffy :)

    I look forward to reading more about your new partner!


  4. Yaaaaah! How exciting?! He's super cute. I have a little thing for haffys too! The first horse I ever cantered was a very round haffy named Willard :)

    Does he have any experience with Parelli? I'm excited to follow your journey with him...especially with the move!

  5. Awww! Congratulations! I will make you a header for your blog if you'd like. Just get some new pictures of your boy and get some together of your "old" boy :) and I'll put one together. Let me know.

  6. oh wow Janine!! I´m totally in love with your new guy! what a handsome boy he is!!! i´m austrian myself ;). i had a hafi when i was a child and could just do anything with him. i actually looked into buying one a while ago but i need my own stable first before purchasing a second horse. he looks like a kaspin :))
    love Marion & Milva

  7. WOW! Thanks guys for all the nice comments!!!! I look forward to the journey! And, No, Kaspin has had no experience with Parelli. And bringing him home today, I could tell, LOL. Denali's mom! That is super! Now, I need some pictures, LOL!! I'll post more soon!!!

  8. Oh my goodness he is sooooo cute!!! I can't wait to see more pictures of him. I love the name Kaspin. I'm so excited for you!
