At birth, Haflinger foals are given a name beginning with the same letter as their mother’s or father’s name. Their coats are always sorrel-coloured, while their manes and tails are blonde. Sometimes, they have marks or blazes on their heads; otherwise, they are generally single-coloured. When they are fully grown, they are 138 to 155 cm tall. Although the minimum height for a horse is 148 cm, meaning Haflingers are usually categorised as ponies, they are actually a breed of horses.
Haflingers often have a distinctive, light-coloured muzzle.
