My first horse was a Morgan/ QH. Maggie was the absolute best horse I've ever ridden. And has a kid, I put her through hell! We would ride double all over the place, jump ditches, barrel race, anything I would ask...she would do. Unfortunately, she became infected with a very rare foot fungus (i think) called canker. She had it in all four feet. After a year and a half of soaking everyday and seeing every vet around (and no one had a clue about what it was and how to treat it) we gave her to some people that were going to try some old Native American treatments on her.. If that didn't work, they were going to put her down, since it would have been really tough for my family to. We never heard anything else about her but I would assume the treatments didn't work. But anyways, she was a wonderful wonderful horse and I miss her terribly. I have heard that QH/Morgan crosses are wonderful.
