American Bashkir Curlies are such sweet animals. They are amazing for riders who are allergic, because they have a curly coat that is considered hypoallergenic.

64 Miniature Pony

They are so cute and small. A great first pony for a little person.

65 Suffolk Punch

An exceedingly rare breed of draft, they are a highly coveted horse with an exceptionally gentle demeanor. Hard workers and intelligent, they excel in hauling and drayage, field work, and are very smooth under saddle. Weighing-in at 1800+ lbs, they are massively muscled. They have very alert and active ears. Numbering less than 1500, the Rare Breed Survival Trust lists them as a bloodline that is critically endangered.

I have been blessed with one of these fine horses, and rarely does a day pass without some subtle realization of the perfection of this breed. They are monsterously strong, gentle in disposition, tolerant of fools, intelligent, and LOVE to pull and push things. Want to make a Suffolk happy? Put her under harness and give her a job involving heavy objects. These equine tractors have amazing utility in small logging and field operations, needing little in the way of upkeep. Not prone to biting, kicking or drama of any sort, they genuinely enjoy human ...more

67 Newfoundland Pony

The number of Newfoundland Ponies that are in existence today has dwindled to a very small number. They are sweet tempered, very hard working, resilient to harsh cold climates. I feel very fortunate to have a sweet Newfoundland Pony mare and she is a sweetheart!

There are only a handful of Newfoundland ponies anymore. I am blessed to have one. They are gentle in nature but strong in strength. A hard working pony, easy keeper and able to withstand cold harsh winters. A very lovely breed of pony!

69 Spanish Mustang

The Spanish mustang A mustang is a free-roaming horse that has become an iconic symbol of the spirit of the American West. Mustangs are often called a wild horse. However, this term is incorrect because they are genetically descended from domesticated Spanish horses. A more accurate term is feral horse.

Mustangs were first brought over to the Americas by Spanish explorers. Native Americans quickly adopted the horse as a means of transportation. Pioneers in the American West, ranchers and cowboys also used the hardy, stocky horses for travel.

Mustangs are known for their speed and grace. They measure an average size of 14 - 15 hands and typically weigh around 800 pounds (360 kg). One hand is equivalent to 4 inches (10 cm). Their coloring varies from reddish-brown, black, white or a golden-brown. In the wild, Mustangs have a lifespan of about 15 to 20 years, while domesticated Mustangs can live up to 30 years.
