Hi Clouds....I just got a Fox Trotter, and love him!! I have to agree with you, the breed is not very well known. He came from "Dancing Shadows Farm" in Cabool, MO, their website is: foxtrottersonline.com. If you go to the website, I now own: "Playboy's Diamond". Had to change his name though, our other horse is named "Diamond", so his new name is "Keeper"....cuz that's what he is, a real KEEPER!!!! Next month we are taking them to the Shawnee National Forest for 2 weeks, staying at Hayes Canyon Campround....will do lots and lots of trail riding, around a 100 miles all total. Even though I haven't had "Keeper" that long, I have no second thoughts about taking a 'new to me' horse on a trail riding vacation; his disposition and calm manner are second to none.
Forgive me for going on and on about "Keeper"....he is one special horse...a "Keeper"!!!!!
