PostSubject: SCHLEICH heavy horses   Fri 18 Mar - 17:50

Now I have had my Homepage for almost 9 months, app 2000 pictures, - and not yet gotten myself pulled together to take pictures of the horses !!! Sleep

But if I don`t start, I will never finish, so ... drunken

My intention is to divide them into

heavy horses
Riding horses
Small horses (Iceys, Fjord, Haflinger etc..)
Ponies

I have started with the heavy horses. We do not see those too often here, so here they are Very Happy

A question,though - the Schwarzwälders, - I suppose they come in this category, or are they small horses ? scratch

Thanks for sharing these! I love them all! I have incomplete families of the Shire (need the foal) and the Clydesdales (need the stallion). I also have the Black Forest mare and I LOVE her! :)

Rogerbert, you sure you know more about horses than you pretend Wink

Tinkers, - wow, yes, they are heavy also. They were of course the horses that pulled the vans of the gipsies (tinkers) in Britain, so yes, they must be heavy horses, too. You are right !!!

They are used a lot in riding schools for beginners here in Denmark, because they are so gentle and friendly, so they did not immediately connect in my head as "heavy".

My dear little son ( 29 years) is here for the week end and sleeps in the room where I keep them. I must take pictures as soon as he wakes up - it is omly 9 in the morning Laughing Laughing

I adore your Chestnut Heavy horses ! cheers I'm still looking for one of them, I don't see them for sale often.

The Tinker/Gypsy horses can be put under the heavy horse catagory. In the UK, they are not classified as a breed but a type. When photo showing I put them under the other heavy catagory.

I think the black forest are also heavy horses. Small, but heavy Wink


EDITED: friesians, at least the baroque type, are also considered as heavy horses (in fact, "semi-heavy" horses)

So! Now the tinkers are there, too . It is SO much fun to find them and take pictures. I am happy I started Very Happy

That chestnut gelding is certainly also one of my absolute favourites, see, my friend Nicole made this, - I love him, the light colour makes me see a lot of detail that I never noticed before :

With this colour he reminds me of a Belgian, am I right ?

Very gorgeous custom :) His colour reminds me more of a Percheron but I'm not sure they can have that much feather.

Did you find it easy to obtain ? I had a look a few days ago and all I could find was one from Australia for $80 Shocked

Lovely horses! Very Happy I miss the chestnut draftie and the old Shire gelding ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.])... they have so much more personality than the new molds!

As far as I know, Schwarzwälder horses (or Black Forest Horses) are considered lighter draft horses (commonly known as 'heavy').

Thank you very much flower
I am glad you also like the pictures (I did not make the horses Rolling Eyes ), perhaps I have gotten a little better at taking photoes, - at an average.
Now and then I suddenly get a good shot, but the problem is that I have no idea what I did right Shocked scratch Embarassed

And thank you everyone for helping me to find the right category for the heavy horses. I may need more help for the "small horses" later, if it is ok ? Very Happy

It seems a purple roan with corn spots to me :)

Here you can see a purple roan horse (also known as common roan): [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] This horse has not corn spots (EDITED: yes, it has, its corn spots are very light; if you look carefully wou´ll see them!), not all roan horses have them and I haven´t found a great photo of a purple roan with them. But here you can see a detail of the corn spots: [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] And here is the Susanne´s custom: [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]






Susanne, I´ll be pleased helping you with your small horses!

I agree with you, about the corn spots but I don't think that Susanne's horse is dark enough to be a roan. His face is too light and so are his black points.

He looks like a dapple grey to me.

I can ask Nicole, who made him.
But I am almost sure she meant him to be a "Fleabitten" grey and not a roan Wink

Roan horses can have lighter or darker heads. It´s true it should be a bit darker, and its points should be a bit more black. I keep thinking it´s more similar to a purple roan than to a grey. Anyway, not a dappled one, since it has no dapples; maybe a fleabitten one; but even in that case it should have dark knees and hocks. If it was linebacked it could be a perfect corn spotted grullo :)

EDITED: OK, I forgot fleabittens have a different pattern of becoming grey. Please forgive me, it´s a bit late here and I need to sleep a bit xD So it could be a fleabitten. But then I think it should have a bit lighter body:)
