My name is:
SnowflakeI am a true Florida Cracker horse; you may notice that I’m petite (14’ 0”) but don’t let that fool you. I’m a tough cookie, and if you do a little research you’ll find that Florida cowmen were nicknamed “Crackers” because of the sound made by their cow whip cracking the air. This name was also given to the small agile Spanish Horse (my ancestors) essential for working Spanish cattle. Over the years, Cracker Horses have been known by a variety of names: Chicksaw Pony, Seminole Pony, Marsh Tackie, Prairie Pony, Florida Horse, Florida Cow Pony, Grass Gut and others.
Florida Cracker Horses are small saddle horses, standing from 13.2 hands to 15.2 at the withers and weighing 700 – 1000 pounds. The head is refined and intelligent in appearance; now don’t you think that description fits me perfectly? Since I have a short, narrow back I also have a special saddle that was made especially for me. Actually, that’s a part of Florida history as well. You might just say that I’ve brought a little bit of the true “Old Florida” to HHEAL, and I’m very happy to be part of this herd.
