Researching the species the horse we found many great things and amazing facts. Some of these amazing facts are unbelievable and others just made the staff here at Animaroo Horses a little jealous. For example, a hors only requires a total of 2 ½ hours of sleep each day. And most of that is in 15 minute increments. I immediately starting thing that I could accomplish so much more if I only needed a total of 2 ½ hours of sleep instead of 8 hours just to keep from feeling like I am going to pass out at my keyboard. I could accomplish world domination in that extra 5 ½ hours in a day! Ok well maybe not world domination but I could for sure accomplish laundry domination. My mind starting racing wondering what could I get done if I had an extra 5 ½ hours each day. I could accomplish not just the things that I need to do but some of the things that I wanted to do for fun that I never have time to learn. Like horseback riding! Yes I admit I work for a company that deals with horses and horse sales but I do not know how to ride a horse. I also could not tell the difference between a Quarter Horse and an Appaloosa. I am sure there are very distinguishing things about these breeds when compared to each other but none that my amateur eyes can see. None the less if I had 5 ½ hours extra in each day I am sure that I could learn to at least ride a horse. What on Earth would you be likely to do with 5 ½ extra hours in your day? Would it be creative or would it be restful? Most of the office staff here said they would just get more rest since they all work so hard and put in some long hours sometimes. I had to know what the other office staff decided they would do with their extra hours and I was shocked. Almost unanimously the all said “sleep”. After polling everyone in the office and realizing that the idea does sound a bit lazy I too would have to say a couple extra hours of sleep would be the thing that I would have to choose too.

Hungarian Warmblood: Sounds Like A Hot Date To Me

So I have determined after a short inner office poll between the ladies in the office that I am the only person in the office who thinks that Hungarian Warmblood sounds extremely provocative instead of like a horse breed. The inner voice in my head says it with a squinted eyes and deep Antonia Banderas accented voice and it makes me giggle every time. Is that what it really should sound like? I am not horse expert but I would have to say if I heard a strongly accented voice tell me “I have Hungarian Warmblood horses for sale. You Buy one?” I would buy one! Now again I have polled the ladies in the office and even though they giggled when I did my personal Banderas impression they said I should not quit my day job. So I hit the books again trying desperately to learn more about the Hungarian Warmblood and its real natural talents and found that it is amazing in many other ways rather than just for a giggle.
The Hungarian Warmblood is a sport horse. Mostly disciplined in things like dressage, show jumping, cross-country and combined driving. The breed standards for the Hungarian Warmblood are now very rigid to insure that they breed is inspected, licensed and approved by the Hungarian Warmblood breeding communities all over the world.
I have to admit if I were on any of these committees on name alone I would want this horse breed to be held to a high standard. We can’t have such a strong name giving way to a meek and tender idea in the minds of individuals like me. We want a name like Hungarian Warmblood horses to strike an air of highly sophisticated, elegant, and mysteriously provocative. Ok! Maybe not the provocative part but I will allow my imagination to run wild and free with silly ideas of regal underlain blood lines. Strong blood lines and horses with manly attitude and strength in every step gallantly taken as the definitions that race amongst the images in my head every time I hear the name Hungarian Warmblood.

With time not on my side I left the searching and relished the fact that I had become slightly more educated for the day. I had learned that Quarter in the name Quarter Horse is merely a way for a buyer to know when he or she is looking to purchase a horse searching for Quarter Horses for sale will help them find a smaller horse, with the possible ability and training needed to run as quickly as possible in shorter distances. I have also learned that the Quarter Horse is a horse that is great for smaller individuals to ride and they can be used for things other than what they were originally intended. The amazing thing about horses is they are an extremely versatile animal and when they are trained, cared for, and used properly can be used for a wealth of things other than what they may have been originally bred to accomplish.
