StableMaster will generate a "stable" full of horses for use in your AD&D game. This program uses prices and statistics generally compatible with the 2nd Edition AD&D game rules. A variation of the horse traits tables from the 2nd Edition DMG is used, along with horse coloration and markings supplied by gralhruk on the Dragonsfoot AD&D Forums (and credit is hereby given to him).
