Peppy Barrel Racing, I GOTTA ask--How does Diablo ride, with that kind of a mix? FoxTrotter AND the others? I'm sure it's smooth, but it's gotta be different.

Here is Isabelle, my Missouri Fox Trotter mare, and her foal Zane. Zane is only 1/2 Fox Trotter (other half QH) so I don't know if he will be gaited or not.

The first three pictures were taken Labor Day, 2010.

This is TWH Duke, my heart horse. He is 23 in this picture and was 16 in the avatar picture. Only 14.3H he is considered a pony in the Walking Horse world. He's my alpha-dominant horse, still wears a "No Fear" t-shirt and has never bucked, reared, kicked, bitten or otherwise made any sort of mistake in the 21 years we've been buds.

Duke is old enough that Midnight Sun is his great-grandsire; along with Wilson's Allen on his bottom.


16.1H TWH Rusty is Generator-bred and my best down and dirty trail horse. He is my most athletic of the three and thrives on dangerous cliff-hangar trails. He is not a horse for the faint of heart - if you're a timid rider, you lose. Rusty has been with me 13-1/2 yrs.


12 yr old TWH Joker is 15.2H and came to live with us in 2006. Both his parents were in their 20's when he was born, so he is only 5 or 6 generations away from Old Glory and Nell Dement. His sire is from the Chance line which had no Midnight Sun in it at one point in time.

This was Joker's first ride in 4 years but he went thru the field like we'd been riding every day.


Annnd horse #4 is my Arab who was 23 in this picture; he's now 25. Sorry, can't leave him out; I rescued him when he was seven. He is the best child-safe horse one could ask for. He is being ponied alongside Duke, who is in huff because his BFF won't trot faster.

Lol walkinthewalk, Duke looks like a big ole quarter horse in that picture! Also, quick question, since my mare is only 14.1, she would be considered a pony?

Too funny that you say that. Even though Duke does get mistaken for a gaited Morgan on occasion, I did have someone once ask me how I taught that Quarter Horse to gait - lollol He had to have gotten his build from his dam, whom I never saw. I was privileged to see his sire, Pride's Genious, who was around 16H and solid black

If your mare is a Walking Horse 14.1H should be considered a pony but, I honestly don't know if what I said is correct.

Someone I trail ride with, that also shows, told me Duke would be considered a pony if I were to ever show him. I just took them at their word and never pursued it

Thanks. He has a great back end. This was takin when I first got him and they had sone horrible shoes on him and his heal was way over grown so he dosnt quite step out that high but he still has that great back end. He was show bred so he got saved. My mother who used to show in the 70 s and 80 s wants to pad him up but there will be none if that and thank god she lives in another state. I would like to show him flat shod though but there isn't to many Twh shows in north Texas

I would much rather sacrifice a bit of animation to have a horse that gaits in the arena and on the trails flatshod! If you've got a good back end you can work with the rest :) up here in Alberta we have on the regular shoes for trail protection in the summer and have even had american judges say that some of the horses would be competitive in USA in Trail Pleasure, so there is definiteky a place for the regular shod horses in the states.
Goodluck finding some shows, I'm not all that knowledgable about USA showing but you've got a good looking boy there!!
