Curly "Type"

Many people would like to know what Curlies Can Do.  Well, there is a Curly built for almost any discipline!  Curlies tend to have good round strong hooves, good bone structure, and a deep barrel.

The Damele line of horses were bred for Ranch and western work.  The Curly Jim and Walkers Prince T lines are gaited lines of Curlies, and Mels Bathtub Gin is a Suffolk Punch cross and there are Curly Percheron's as well.  Ellen Bancroft in Washington State is breeding Curly Miniatures for driving.  Bazy Tankersly also bred a line of CurlyxArab Endurance horses.

 

Breeders have judiciously cross-bred Curly horses to create different types of performance horses, as well as all-around "Can Do" curlies.
