I will just have to stick with my over eating high priced QH. That $350/year to keep them will probably brake me before long.

I'm not a QH fan either, but I must say that comment about them being "gut busters" mystifies me. I've never ridden a QH that wasn't smooth. Morgans are the ones with steep shoulders.

Oooooh , I didn't even notice. No reason not to continue to brag on QHs though. I just got 2 more customer horses in today and one of them is picture perfect foundation QH. He's right around 15hh tall and right around 15hh wide LOL. Though he isn't really very pretty, he sure looks like a good stout using horse (and he's only 4 ).

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Do we get to guess who the alter ego was?!!!

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

I won't own anything but a quarter horse. My quarter horse is one of the gentlest horses at our barn. We have Arabians (too high maintenance and attitude problems) and Morgans (stubborn and high strung) at our barn but 99% of our barn has quarters. Paul takes care of me and won't try any funny stuff on me. He has the energy I need when I cut with him and he has the laziness I want when we do trails. He's the ideal horse and everyone at the barn just loves him.

Well, I can tell you that. A big ol' Percheron. That's the breed that would be better suited to you.

Just sayin.

I was pretty shocked at how fast Solon can spin when he plays!

I just have to get him over his fear of cows. He's just not quite sure what they are!
