    I'd venture a guess my JJ, Alex's Luke, and Cori's Froggy are more the norm for TBs than the 'crazy' ones. It's always the nutsy ones that get the attention, so of course close minded people like to tar a whole breed with the same paintbrush. I think maybe the really successful racers are probably more sensitive and 'up', because that's what makes them successful. Many more TBs just don't have the drive to excel on the racetrack, which is what makes them so good at so many other things.

    I can say I think QHs are lazy, stupid, and ugly, but that wouldn't make me any more right than someone saying TBs are unhandleable, loco, and only make good jumpers or racers. Neither is true.

    I say this because all I see are tb's that are ott but if you ask horse people about them that's the response you get QH's are know for being versatile some know by experience the tb can do most the same things qh or other breeds do but how many out there don't know this ask the rescues in Ky about this because they see it every day.

    Really? Because JJ, Froggy, and Lucas are ALL ex-racers, and nobody I've been around has said anything like that at all.

    You need to start hanging out with horse people who know a little more than your friends do about ex-racing TBs.

    I also think you don't understand sarcasm very well, if you're trying to point out stones and glass houses to me.

    Pick a different breed, lady! I have my own lazy qh, so I don't need an extra-reminder how lazy she is (although I going to argue about ugliness)! LMAO! And my paint (with lots of TB on her pedigree) is indeed good for just jumping (and dressage). She definitely is not a good pick for cow work.

    You know its clear you don't like me its clear you come at everything I say how about just leaving me alone kk. I live in the horse racing capital almost every tb is ott and they can't give them away because they are either hurt or a basket case.... here in Ky now when you live here and see that this is the norm here for tb's then you can judge me and call me ignorant all you want .

    I wish my TB was hotter, he is the laziest darn mule I have ever owned. He has also only been off the track for 2 years and won $35k with only 10 races.

    When I ride, my legs get more of a work out than his do.

    Perlino, every breed was "created" (hmmm... if it's a good word) for certain purpose. Including QHs and TBs. But again horse is the horse and is trainable in discipline of your choice (if it has a heart to do the particular discipline). While TBs are not my cup of tea (mostly because of the way most of them move - quite bumpy to my taste) they are very popular in all kinds of disciplines around here: english AND western.
