    Wow, how did you manage to pick up the screen name "horse"? Lol You would think it would have been taken

    I'm partial to the drafts, myself. I would get a new-age built shire, maybe. They're the show-stoppers, often 'bombproof' without training, calm, smart, and often think before reacting.
    The way their feather streams behind them is visually pleasing, too... it makes things look smooth and fluid-like.

    Sorry, but I hate to see statements such as this. Certainly, Drafts as a whole, tend to be more quiet and steady than many other breeds, but they are all still horses. All can still be of slightly different temperaments and all can be dangerous. None are born trained, as some seem to think.

    In Gypsies, we often see websites stating that the breed is "Golden Retrievers with Hooves". So silly to say such things. Newbies might expect something the breed is not. Of course we love our Gypsies for their wonderful, unflappable temperament and work ethic, but they are still horses, need training and respect. Strangely enough, I was just watching a movie last night, of a Shire show. One horse in the ring was leaping about wildly, almost lifting his handler off the ground. Unusual yes, but just doing what any breed might do.

    Hmm. Trite. Notice I said OFTEN and not ALWAYS. Also note that I put *bombproof* in quotations for an emphasis on irony, disdain and an apologetic word.

    Of course, I'm one that goes against the grain on this forum; I don't buy into the whole "breed doesn't matter" thing.

    I know I was so lucky to get horse, and I like how you are serious about your opinion. I agree I have always seen "bombproof" shires

    I think a draft/draft cross would be a great trick horse. Their size makes them very flashy and noticeable, their temperment makes them calmer, they're sturdy and hardy and have good wide backs!

    I think it depends on what exactly you're doing, specifically what kind of tricks. A draft may be perfect, cold bloods tend to be a slower, calmer, some I've met are lazy. Hot bloods can be more reactive, but their also more responsive, so it really depends on personal preference. I think you should look for a horse that already has some experience trick riding and see what you find and see if you connect with that horse.

    I think any color (other than something super light) would work with white in my mind I see tobiano.

    I apologise. I just didn't get that you were being sarcastic. I understand now and of course, agree.
