In Which I Steal a Haffie
Fact: Jen lives about five miles from my house.
Also Fact: I love Haflingers.
Logical Conclusion: I must steal Paddington.
If a Haffie is haff a horse, they need haff a pasture right? Aka my urban back yard. And they cost haff as much right?!
You can see where this is going… Okay I didn’t steal him but I did get to ride him and basically we’re in love. Best friends forever. I will now refer to him as best friend Paddington.
Jen has this great trail system that connects to right by her house, so we went for a lovely trail ride. All the rumors about my new best Haffie friend are true – he’s such a fun little creature! Riding him gave me flashbacks to trail riding and doing hunter paces on my own little palomino hony that I learned to ride on.
We even got to ride up to a field so I could put the Haffie through his paces. So much fun! Makes me want to become an eventer… Almost 😉 seriously though, Paddy is green but he was an absolute blast to ride and a hard trying little horse. We even jumped a small bank where I giggled like a small child/idiot/haffy smitten person.
Moral of the story? Haffies are awesome. Stars come in all shapes and sizes.

I should note that Lauren did in fact return the Haffington to his rightful owner. It was a close thing though…
Next time I’m just going to gallop down your driveway going NANANNANANA MIIIIIIIIIIIIIINE
I love halfies, they really are a blast!
My aunt owns a little haffie mare named Anastasia, I’ve ridden her a few times but mostly, even before I owned Red, I stuck to him or the smaller pony. She’s the sweetest thing, I personally wouldn’t own a haflinger because, I don’t know…stuck with my stock horses, haha, but I definitely wouldn’t turn down rides with one!
OMG that’s not even fair. I want a Haffie Paddington Hony!
I think we all need a Paddington!
I have a soft spot for Haffies. I’ll also jealous of all the blogger who have other bloggers in their back yard. Can we have a giant blogger meet and greet? Texas is close to WV, right?
Haffies are adorbs – I am so lucky that they are popular in my neck of the woods & i get to see a fair few of them – bolshy little beggars though some of them 😉
Really wish they were more popular in the US! They’re great little creatures.
I WANT I WANT I WANT.
I am seriously squealing over the adorableness. Best Friend Paddington = awesome.
We need to organize a TX Bloggers weekend or something and then everyone can meet the adorable haffieness!
I am jealous of your Haffie access!!
He is adorable, and looks like so much fun!! Jealous over here.
How awesome he is soooo cute!
Paddington is adorable! I would be tempted to steal him too!
Halffies are great! and you look good on him *hint* *hint* we have one at our barn and ex cart horse that i ride once in a while… weeee!
I am slightly partial to haffies 🙂
They are a blast, never a dull moment with them. I agree, everyone should have at least one haffie!
OMG I need one!
PS he totally can fit in your back yard 😉
AH HE IS SO CUTE! I would steal Paddington too if I could; I need a Haffie for my backyard! 😉
OMG! He is so precious!! He looks like so much fun!!
I decided long ago to get my nephew a Halfie when he turns four. 🙂
Neat! It’s cool you got to ride cute little Paddington.
I’m totally with you. I want a Haffie too!
Love Halffies! I think you should take a spin on the dark side. 🙂
I’m obsessed with Haffies!! He is soooo cute!!
I want to put him in my pocket!
Looks like you had a blast! How could you not if your riding Paddington!
ADORABLE OVERLOAD!! 🙂
I want to steal a Haffie! I even have one in mind…
I hear from Jen that we’re going to be seeing you at MeadowCreek this Saturday…. you can ride my red demon too, but you might not enjoy it quite as much 😉
OMG Haffies are the cutest. The first barn I rode at had a whole HERD of them, they were awesome. They were all named things like Hans and Gunther and Lars.
It’s hard to find an argument against Haffies! Glad you had fun 🙂
