Now I don't know much about gaited breeds outside of walkers but I have tried to round up cows on them. Lets just say most walkers are to fast for cows to use them full time. It was take two steps and wait, take two more steps then wait some more. As much as I love the ride of a walker for doing cows full time I would want a horse that walked at the same speed as a cow.
My mom has a walker. I read somewhere to, that cowboys like a horse with an indian shuffle. Anybody ever hear that?
