Naming of the Haflinger
Starting from Foly 249, 7 bloodlines were created, which are marked with the initial letters A, B, M, N, S, St, W. The colts take on the name of the Haflinger. The colts always take the first letter of their sire. The fillies, on the other hand, have been named according to the year of birth since 1977, whereby the Italian alphabet is used: in 2016, the initial letter was "Z"; in 2017, they started again with "A".
Tip: From the middle of May, farmers traditionally bring their cattle to the alpine pastures - first the cattle, then one or two weeks later the horses. The animals spend their summer holidays there until the end of September, feeding on fresh grass and juicy herbs and enjoying the healthy mountain air - side by side with the hikers, some of whom are already on their way to the summit at an early hour to enjoy the unique mountain panorama in the light of the rising sun.
They particularly like to be found around the Kirchsteiger Alm, in the skiing and hiking area of Merano 2000, or near the Stoarnen Mandln in Vöran.
