So I traded my mule for a good looking (supposed) grade Quarter Horse stud colt. Now I'm questioning if he's REALLY pure-bred QH. He's not papered, unfortunately, and the guy I swapped with said he's 'From Doc Bar lines'.
He's getting gelded ASAP so it really doesn't matter, I was just wondering as he doesn't really seem all that QH now that I'm working with him more.
Strong, well-built, but compact head
Not-so QH Characteristics (I think):
Large, wide set eyes
Flashy, lofty/floaty trot
Arabian-like tail carriage at trot/canter/gallop
Small nostrils (Not really a defying characteristic, it's just odd to me xD)
The first day I got him, he broke through my ELECTRIC band fencing. I saddled up Loki and went after him, finally herding him back into the paddock. He hasn't gone through again since then, today he actually tried to duck under it but I got after him before he could.
He's rather flashy and beautiful, I just got to wondering today when I started working him. I tried for two hours to catch him so that I could get the lead rope the idiot I traded with LET HIM LOOSE WITH T-T but no luck yet.
Leaving a lead on in the pasture: Big no no.
ESPECIALLY in a nylon, non-break-away halter! WHAT WAS THIS MAN THINKING
