    Candy is probably a 6 or 7. She was abused when she was younger, so she spooks and gets scared pretty easily. But on the ground, she is a 1. Nothing scares her when she doesn't have anyone riding her.

    I train horses so run into all kinds.I am working with a young {yearling} QH colt right now and he is great,in fact I don't think I'll resell him,will keep him for my own!Dakota I would rate as a 3 for calmness.He has a lot to learn,but he is a great little guy.When my QH/Arab mare was alive I would rate Chili as a 1.She was a one in a million horse.

    So, are we using the usual temperment ratings where 1 is bomb-proof and 10 is flight or the reverse?
    Using the former, I'd put Aero at a 2. She is very quiet and has a good mind to her. I've yet to find what spooks her - and I have tried!

    Using 1 as bombproof and 10 as unmanageable, I would rate Rocky at a 5 because sometimes he's spooky and then sometimes he's not. He's very levelheaded and most of the time he takes strange noises and loud sounds in stride. But every so often (its his personality) he'll decide that something completely harmless (i.e. A few weeks ago it was a dark colored mound of sand in the arena) is actually a tiger and is out to kill him. Then he gets hot and needs some reassuring.

    Letss see.
    Roman 2- He shys at change. Lets say people are walking down a trail im riding on he goes "Whoa, they arn't supposed to be out here.....what the heck". Or my rounpen fence broke and he was a bit worried about that.
    Thunder 5 - Unprodictable. He isn't scared of anything. You can do mounted shooting, roping, etc on him. Yet he pretends thinking itll scare you and get you off.
    Slick 3 - he's just a little edgy.
