It's going to be tall and long-legged and can jump big.............whatever it is! I have a goat here that would fit the bill - LOL!

TBJ, you listed everything BUT the breed - you are so excited! LOL!

Nuisance, if LBJ was closer to me, I'd go with you in a heartbeat.

WWarrior, I here the Chris Cox demo is really neat. Had a friend who went a couple of years ago and got her picture taken with his roan stallion (the one that is retired now). She said it was better than having her pic taken with George Strait!....I don't know about that..........
