    Sorry Draftgrl, I think I got him mixed up with another cross Gypsy on the forum. I see he has that Gypsy temperament that we all love.
    If there is paint in the dam's background, then he quite well might also be hiding frame.

    You will have fun with him.

    Forgot to add. Is there any way you can get a copy of the pedigree of his QH dam? Want to make sure there is no Impressive in the background and if there is, test him for HYPP.

    Oh no its fine :)

    No, the dam is an unregistered mare unfortunatly. Not sure why this gal who bred Traum and all her others is using unregistered mares....
    But yea HYPP test probably wouldn't hurt none.

    So tonight was a GREAT night with my boy. And before anyone starts yelling at me about what I did, I know all that can happen with a young horse. What I did I know did NOT hurt him what so ever!!

    Anyway...Tonight friend of mine who is younger and rides the BO's horse caught a ride with me to the barn. We started just playin with the horses being goof balls lol. She decided to call it a day and to go clean her saddle, I kept playing with Traum a bit.

    I decided to get him used to a bit of weight on his back, so I stood on the mounting block and kind of laid over him petting him and such, so he could get used to someone being on both sides. If he took a step I stayed on then slid off. Well I wen to show my friend that Traum was being such a good boy with this. She then said well why not actually sit on him? Mind you I have no saddle on him. So I decided to do so for a couple mins. She stood by his head, and I slid onto him. He didn't move!!! I was so excited! Then my friend started walking him a bit, we did about 2 laps of the areana, which is small because of a fire in the other half. Traum did nothing!! Can't belive he's doing such a good job.

    Just had to let whoever actually looks at this know! Like I said before, nothing of this hurt him, and it is not something I am going to do often. The next time I am going to do this is probably a month from now.

    I'm not going to yell at you, but how old is Traum? I think you might have posted it somewhere, but I cannot remember at the moment. However, he does still look like a very young horse to me and possibly too young to be wearing a saddle and/or having anyone leaning weight on his back??

    If he is over two years old, certainly he can be taught to carry a back pad or lightweight saddle.

    Did you do an Xray of his spine? That is the last thing that closes on babies. Knee bones close around 2 1/2 years old, but that does not mean the horse is ready to have weight on his back. Draft and draft cross horses, mature very slowly.

    You can certainly be using this time to make sure he is absolutely solid in his groundwork, but I think, you maybe are trying to take him a little too far, too soon.

    I saw on another message thread, you had him lying down, wearing a saddle and with a cotton rope hobble on a front pastern. Again, I think it is too much, too soon with this little fellow.

    JMHO

    Yes he is young, and I understand and completly agree with waiting to ride and such til at minimum of 2. I have only had the saddle on him a handful of times, and only for a max of 20you min. I have had no intentions of riding him until my BO suggested it who has been working with, showing, training and whatever else for im sure 40 plus years. Now he did not say to ride often at all, but after checkinga him overyou said that once a month at a walk for just a couple mins would not hurt him in the slightest. No he is not a vet, but may as well be with all his knowledge, plus that of his wife, who said the same thing. With all I have done with him he has only broke a sweat maybe 3 times in the past 2.5 months.
