Ok, I know there will be much debate over this or at least a lot of different answers but I am curious so I am going to ask.
I have owned QHs for almost all my life...and as far as this questions goes towards that breed of horse.....I know the answer...but I "ended up with" a TWH colt when my "brother in law" baught a mare and she was prego..... Long story short out poped a palamino colt whom I just adore and couldnt part with....So he turned 2yrs old this April and I DO NOT WANT HIM TO BE A NARROW SKINNY WALKING HORSE! His mother was a rather big thick grl and his dad wasnt a shrimp.....he is growing nicely but I have seen MANY scrawny gaited horses and it probably has a lot to do with genetics...but I have thus far kept him intact so he would "bulk" up like my QHs...however I now feel since his 2nd BDAY that these gaited horses may be oppisite.... Maybe he stays pumped up which keeps him lean rather than bulking him up?? IDK just thought mayb some exsperianced GAITED folks may give some insight. He is by no means skinny....but he doesnt get FAT either...so anyways lets have it!
