She swear by them I believe her. There is a guy local to me who breeds spotted drafts to Tennesse Walkers. He gets gaited half drafts. Pretty neat.

I'm sure the lovely lady in question wouldn't mind getting in touch with you to share her experience with these guys. Just pm me :)
these sound neat as well. There are so many gaited breeds/crosses now to look at... thanks!
Yeah I have scoliosis due to a fusion of the last 2 vertebrae in my low back being fused to my tailbone... the chiropractor isn't sure if I was born with it or if it happened very early in life but I was never tested for scoliosis as a kid. I only found out I had it when I was 19... but always had migraines, back pain, and tailbone pain growing up. My folks thought I was just whining
