My uncle's wife's father raised TWH, and so did his father, and so on.
They used theirs for working cattle, trail rides, and breeding.
Not a single one I saw growing up ever looked like the show horses today (steep shoulders, thin bodies, thin boned, wonky hind legs), or moved like them, etc. They just looked like QH's with longer thick necks and heads. Exceptionally lovely, kind spirited and tough as nails/hardy. They used to toss me on their older horses bareback with only a handful of mane and turn me loose.
All the commercial crud is REALLY ruining some of the best breeds ever.
If I could ever find one like they had I'd snatch him up in a heart beat.
You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!! What do you mean what do I mean?
