It will be important to actually ride the horse to make sure it's set it in its gait and has a comfy gait, as not all of them do. We have a MFT and a TWH, plus AQHAs. The MFT is elegantly long-limbed, an athlete, beautiful head, and a personality and temperament that is wonderful. He's my husband's horse and I haven't ridden him since he's been back from the trainers; I'm afraid if I ever do, I won't want to go back to my TWH since he looks to be smoother than she is, by far. Most of the MFT that I have met are great temperament, probably similar to a Morgan and much calmer than a Saddlebred, if that helps.

Lady, that info is what I read online too! It's nice to hear from someone who owns one tho....my friends always rode QH, but switched to MFTbecause they make such great trail horses. Working on caching a ride here soon! thanks for the input as always!!

Have a good day, and ride strong!!

It hurts! Mine bubbled up just like a regular burn.
I too would give you a rope burn! PUT THE KNIFE DOWN.

Hope everything went OK.

Good Morning..... Night!

I'm a little disappointed with the lack of talk last night. I guess everyone busy tending to their own rope burns. I'm a little slow and sore this morning but enjoying a nice rain that WILL stop when I'm ready to get the horses done.

Sounds like someone is getting a DUN. Take photos of your very good friend riding him.

I guess I need to change my greeting since it is NOW 11:12 PM in NZ while 7:12 AM where I am.

Talk later.

Edit: My wife just showed my my shirt that I was wearing when being dragged.... nay... plowing the dirt.

My boy is doing good now. He had a couple of rough days but for the most part he's better now. I think he must of gotten a stone bruise when I was lounging him cause he's a little limpy on one foot but even that seems to be getting better now. It's been about 2 weeks since he was gelded. It was a tough decision. I don't know how familiar you are with bloodlines Sereno but he's out of an Atrevido mare and Retorno de LM, he was born with us, imprinted by me and basically a big spoiled brat that I love dearly. We were late getting him started under saddle, he was never used for breeding and I've never rode him ( I know!) I need to find a trainer to get him to the point where I can ride him but I'm too picky for my own good I guess. One of these days I'll try to find some video of him. We just had to purchase a new computer as the other one died and now everything is so foreign to me. I used to have the video of him being shown in the futurity class at nationals on youtube but it's not there anymore. But yeah, I deserve to be punished for gelding him I agree it was one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make which is why it took me till he was 5 to make it LOL. But, in the end I decided that it was best for him and for me. What made it even more difficult was that he had NEVER acted study a day in his life. Difficult yes, study no. That's him in my avatar and that was his reaction to being turned out in the snow. I knew he would pitch a fit so I armed my husband with the video camera so we could have fond memories of the moment, as you can see he didn't disappoint us.

Sereno, your horse was just trying to participate in the game of "Dirt Skiing". It can be a glorious sport, but the "stay on your feet" version is much more pleasant to the human than the "belly flop" version of the game.

Last time I played the "belly flop dirt skiing game" my DH informed me that it was my good fortune to have plenty of "padding" in the form of excess adipose tissue on my abdomen to protect my organs. Somehow his kindness didn't really please me that day.........

Farmchic, no matter how good of a horse a stallion is, you will always enjoy him as a gelding more. I had one that was a tough decision years ago. I never regretted it. I'll let other people with better facilities have the stallions.

Celeste. THANKS for the tips and believe me.... I really DID try to dirt ski standing up. Looked at his lead this morning; trashed. As I watched him galloping with the long lead still attached, I couldn't make up my mind if I would laugh or cry if he tripped on it.

Everyone has to do what they think is right and best for all. Let's see if these people can train your guy or know a good Paso trainer in your area. Jan and Ted are good people and Jan helped us a lot when we needed correct and GOOD Paso tack. There ranch is in OK. Let Jan know that the people in the Dominican Republic recommended them and Say HI.

Yes, Retorno del Ocho is the grand sire of both of our horses. A large majority of Pasos have Resorte blood and it's not uncommon to have it on both the sire and dams side. Thank you for the reference! I'll look them up. We've been back and forth over what to do about a trainer. We have the facility here to train at but we don't have housing for a full time trainer.
