The Haflinger is named after the town where the founding mare resided in the picturesque Tyrolean Alps between Austria and Italy. This line of steeds began in 1874, but it wasn't until 1958 that the first ones came to America. After WW II the Austrian government took over breeding the Haflinger. The first U.S.-born Haflinger stallion to be inspected and approved in the U.S was Arlin, a stallion originally owned by Charles Bobo of Foothill Farms in South Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains. Known for their striking golden chestnut color, the Halfinger is one of the most beautiful horses for sale in our classified ads.
