Clouds,

Where did you purchase Mystique from? I'm looking into possibly purchasing a gaited horse and would love to look into the breed further. Thanks!!

It's the sugar and my bet is he will like beer also!! It's the yeast.. I couldn't drink a can of anything without my horse wanting a taste also..

I got her from Woodward Fox Trotter Farm in DeLeon Springs, FL. They've got some really nice horses, and they all have AMAZING dispositions. They have two horses for sale at the moment... a 5yo mare and a 10yo gelding.

I know the mare's sire and he is the sweetest thing! This is him:

The MFT we have is smooth but he paces so much. It's.. weird.
Hold on, I'm looking for a pic of how his legs move.. he does canter but not normally.
ah, poop. no pics. :(

The only way i can get mine to gait is to keep a tight reign and rub them with spurs..not kick, just kinda roll the spur up and down on them on their side...right when they feel like gathering up to trot i keep a steady tight reign. usually takes a bit but once you hit that gait perfect youll get better at it. our stud is a fox trotter and most of the mares are. i love them!!

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"!!!!!
Happy Trails!!!

I have two gaited, one possible gaited 8D

You just can't go wrong with that gait...soooo smooth. Trotting horses usually hurt my back (broke it three years ago) but gaited, oh boy. I could ride for hours.

Wait! I'll fix it....
