Here's our red dun registered Icelandic gelding, Broddi. We are actually trying to sell him, as my mom (he's her horse) wants a bigger, regular gaited horse, but not with much luck. Some people came to visit today, and informed us that he is actually not tolting when we thought he was. He paces instead. After some research, well, they're right! We have a non-tolting Icelandic. But, he does pace beautifully!
He also get VERY fluffy in wintertime...
If he's that pacey he's probably 5 gaited. Future owner might be lucky. :)
I honestly have no clue. Are you thinking about the flying pace? Maybe he is, though he hasn't with us. He hugely prefers to canter. He'd canter everywhere if he could. And if you push him to go a bit faster when pacing, he ends up just cant-pacing. He's mostly keep pacing, but add an odd little canter stride/hop at the beginning of each stride.
We're fairly clueless about gaited horses. He's our first, so feel free to explain anything.
I know it's been a week since the last post, but I really enjoyed looking at the pics of all your beautiful horses:) I just bought my horse, so I'm very new to this forum (but not to horses). I hope you don't mind me sharing my boy!
This is my 13 month old TWH gelding. Pic was taken by his previous owner, S. Pacovsky, not me. I don't want to take credit for this stunning pic:) I'm super excited to bring him home. He will be my trail horse in a few years (which I'm afraid will go by soooo slowly...lol).
I'm 5'1" when my hair is fluffy.
You should see how small I look on a 17H critter, let alone how silly I look standing on a bucket just to brush their back.
At 14.2 my RMH is one of the smallest horses I've owned... kinda weird to actually be able to see his back on nothing but my tiptoes.
Haha I feel ya! I'm the same size and I used to have a nearly 17h thoroughbred that I looked hilarious on. Now I'm shopping for a paso which I find are much more fitting for me ;)
