Question Anyone else have a horse bred by "Alexander Paint Horses"?

Hey Everyone! I have a 5 yr old APHA gelding who was bred/broke by Alexander Paint Horses in Mississippi. Although I love this horse to pieces, he is definitely an interesting personality! He has some "issues" undersaddle that we are trying to work through. I have tried contacting the breeder, and have not heard a thing- I am thinking they have gone out of business because their website is very outdated too! Anyway, I was wondering if anyone else out there has come accoss a horse from this farm and if they have any "baggage"? Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Did this horse come with these issues? Or are they suddenly popping up?

Did you buy this horse directly from Alexander Paint Horses? Or from someone else? How long have you had the horse?

I went to the web site Alexander Paint Horses and it was updated last year

Experience with "Alexander Paint Horses'

Country Woman, the site has not been updated since September2010... There are pictures of my horse on there when he was a yearling, he is now 5 and I have had him for two years. I have also tried to contact them multiple times just for general information about him and his relatives, I have never mentioned his "issues" and I have not heard back....

CLaPorte432, he definitely had issues when I got him almost 2 years ago! He was run through 2 auctions in a week, one in Mississippi (he was bought by a dealer) and the other in Pennsylvania- I got him from the woman who bought him at the auction in Pennsylvania,he was just too much work for her. Many of his "issues" have resolved just with time and patients. But I was trying to find out if anyone else who owns one of their horses had some extra "baggage" with their purchase too. He is the sweetest horse I have ever owned and will NEVER go anywhere, but I am just trying to solve the puzzle!!! It's such a shame because he is huge (16.1 and still growing!) and beautiful (red/white tobiano) and his siblings have beed listed on for tens of thousands of dollars!

If he had a bad training no wonder he may have "baggage". I doubt it's a personality thing, rather bad handling and care.

Well his issues may have started elsewhere. Not necessarily with the breeder.

They could have started at the auctions, being scared and helpless feeling. Then the woman that bought him, could have put bad training on him. She possibly didnt know what she was doing and he got away with stuff...hence her selling him, you buying him...and now...baggage.

Just a thought.

CLaPorte432 he went right from the breeder to the auctions, so it is possible! The woman that I got him from did some amazing work with him, and helped him get over a lot of things. She never rode him, only did a ton of groundwork and natural horsemanship, so I don't think she was the cause. She was very open and honest with me when I bought him, and I still talk to her. I just feel so bad for my poor boy!

Well, I think finding a reliable professional trainer would be the next step. A great trainer can break these problems.
