horse breeders. Halflings simply refer to the breed as Darrowdales, but have been commonly called Half-Breeds by others due to their small stature. They are two types of Darrowdales, the Rider and the Work Horse. The Darrowdale Rider is a great riding horse for small races, and even some smaller medium races, such as humans and elves. They have been bred to be calmer horses in order to ensure control stays with the rider.
