TUFFY is very correct and looks like a big, full-blood Haflinger. His dam was registered, but her papers were lost when her owner died. We ended up with her - untouched at 6 years old. She broke out wonderfully. We could not find a Haflinger stallion anywhere near, so we bought a 3/4 or 7/8 (seller was unsure) Haflinger horse that was part Percheron, and TUFFY is the result. Hence, he is a little bit bigger, heavier and stronger than most Haflingers. But, there is no mistaking him for anything else.
He will mature about 14 to 14.1 hands and will weigh close to 900# or even more, when mature. He has exceptionally heavy bone. He is stout enough to carry a full-sized rider anywhere, every day of the week. He is very intelligent -- which probably makes him less suitable for a beginner rider. We have been raising great saddle horses for more than 50 years, so we know a good horse when we see one. He is an 'excellent' individual. And, we are great at matching horses to riders. We are painfully honest about any little flaw. Check out our full site. If TUFFY does not suit you, one of our AQHA or Draft crosses sired by our Registered Percheron stallion out of cutting and roping cowbred AQHA mares might be exactly what you are looking for. www.wolferanch.com
