While I have to say I really am an arab girl, I did recently get a 3 yr old appy project and it hasnt been all bad...
Pros: Level headed (too lazy to be spooky) been in 3 parades and I've been using him in drill practices and carrying flag and he does great, loves attention and attention as long as he's not in his stall, very forward until he gets tired, gorgeous markings (leopard) and has a full long tail!!
Cons: Horribly stuborn when he thinks he shouldnt have to do something, nasty stall manners, too smart or, stupid I'm not sure? For his own good and goes through electric fences
Again he is only 3.. and when he gets some more experience I think he will be a great horse to throw newbies on. An even though he's not really my cup of tea I have fallen for him and think he will become my new drill team horse!
