I hate showing so def. Not that. I'll pretty much use him for trails/speed events/jumping none of which I'll do seriously more less for my fun and his fun. I was just curious to find out about this because I think that he (scout) could have been sold for much more. The lady who bred and owned him did not have enough money and her barn went under and had to give away some horses. The lady who got scout for free sold him to us for $500 so the way he price came about was not in the normal fashion.
I see what your saying about his gaits being diff from his sire and dam, but to me a person who is not interested in showing... means very little to me.
I looked up Scouts great sire if that is even a term and to be honest the dude looked fierce. If your interested here is a picture. I think it's cool how all of the stallions that go back in Scouts family tree all resemble each other.
