    I'm honestly just curious and have no intentions of starting a breeding derailment, but do you plan on keeping him a stallion?

    Equiniphile, I believe she plans on having him gelded.

    Yes we're going to geld him. What 10 other threads about his breed? There are 2. The other one I posted was a while back of his teeth to see if anyone could help me figure out his age. Have no idea where those other threads are. Not sure what you mean by making him into something he isn't. Hubby thought he was gaited, I wasn't sure. Just some of the way he moves isn't like a typical Paint or QH, so I was seeking opinions. He's a horse, we ride him and do typical horsey things with him, we're not trying to make him gait or anything. Guess whatever breed he is I've never seen a friendlier, more willing, people-loving, fast learning STALLION in my life. If he's smoother than an average stock horse that's just a bonus.

    Couldn't agree more.

    Actually, I was exaggerating on the 10. I just remember seeing it come up over and over again, despite the fact you get a rash of answers every time you pose the question - guess you still haven't gotten the answer you want?

    Going back to count, you have actually posted 5 different, separate, threads where you have asked what breed he is.

    Including this one, and your other current one in the breed section, which is two already, you have also posted the following other three threads:

    How old is Sundance and what breed(s)? teeth pics.

    Any idea what breed Sundance is?

    Sundance riding pics and Chanti and update
    (yes the above was a picture thread but you asked again what breed everyone thought he was)


    You say you intend to geld him, but you have had him since October, that's 8 months now. What exactly is the hold up on getting that done?

    He doesn't move like a typical Paint or QH, he moves like a HURT Paint or QH. You have had several people now suggest he looks sore or off in his back end, and that might be the unusual movement you are wanting to pretend is him gaiting. A horse parking out when it is not trained to do so is an indication of something wrong, not a cool trick. A horse cross cantering and wringing his tail in the lope is an indication something is wrong. Is there a reason you are not taking several people seeing something off about him more seriously?

    I do not automatically agree with the others. In the shots of him moving at either a gait or a flat trot in the distance, it is too hard to tell whether the diagonal pairs are moving as in a trot or not. If you have had him checked out and there is not obvious soreness, take another video closer and look again.
    One thing you can to to easily SEE a trot is to wrap one pair of diagonal (front left and right rear) legs with white polo wraps and the other with red, or just leave them unwrapped. Makes it easy to see the leg movement and whether it is paired diagonally (trot) or laterally (gait)

    He is cute and will make a nice all around riding horse.

    This is kind of rude .. I honestly don't see how it's your place to force her to disclose why she's waiting. =/

    Also I don't see (from this video at least) the indication that he may be sore off his back end... am I blind?

    He is quite a cute boy! He looks like he is just trotting to me. I don't really have any experience with gaited horses though and I just compared his video to a gaited horse video on youtube haha He looks like he's pretty sweet and has a calm attitude. Breed wise, he looks like a QH or Paint to me also. Or possibly even a Quarab? QH/Arab <-- my filly is a Quarab :)

    I agree with Indyhorse's thoughts, but I don't understand the harshness. Especially with the gelding comment.

    My friend had bought an older buckskin QH mare once. We started noticing she "parked out" a lot and when we started checking it out we found her back was very sore. It did turn out she had back issues and arthritis (something the sellers just "forgot" to mention). I noticed his tail wagging also in the video and found this a bit odd. I've heard that also can mean back pain. I don't have any experience with that though. I know a mare that sort of wags her tail while she is trotting and she has no back issues (it's not quite wagging that much though). I would have him checked out probably --just to be on the safe side. Have you checked his saddle fit and such? Does his back seem at all sore?

    That's a good idea!

    Trotty. And a poor trot at that. He's in pain somewhere-- I'd get a vet out.
