I have a two year old and she is the love of my life. She is so sweet and loving to me. However when I'm not around people say she always bites or kicks them but she never does when I'm around. She also has social issues because where I bought her from she was kept in a round pen for her life. How can I solve her issues? I also heard having two year olds are dangerous and unpredictable especially Appaloosa's. I do not want to sell her shes my baby ♥ any advice?

    What a great horse to have! It sounds like you have a good relationship with her. Don't have any ideas about her social issues, but I'm not sure that it matters how she is with others unless you have to make sure they have a good relationship with her too. As she is young, it may be that she needs time for adjustment and to know what to expect in her home. Good luck.

I own an appaloosa and I am very lucky to have her. She is my best friend, I could've never asked for a better friend. She has defended me from other horses that get jealous. I love her. If you are looking for buying a first time horse, an Appaloosa is a very good choice. =)

I have an 8 year old appaloosa and she is a pain in my butt she is so stubborn and she keeps betting up my 2 stallions. What do I do to have her stop that?

    Maybe she is doing that because she possibly could be in heat and if that is not the case,....then don't put them out together....just put the 2 stallions out together and the appaloosa out seperately. I have an appaloosa at home to and I love her to death but.....ummmm yeah ur welcome.... :D

    The Knabstrup is a very old breed, but very new in the United States. I think the first registry here was accomplished in 2001. check out this website, the American Knabstrupper Association, for more information.
