I would not mind at all if he was a standardbred! EmilyJoy, luckily, he's not that bad. He will stand still for us, but as soon as he gets moving, his tail (which is quite short) starts going up, and he wants to go! But no silliness besides that when we're working with him. I guess I should have mentioned that trait, when he trots, he holds his tail up reallyyy high (higher than most do naturally) and he will only go to the bathroom in his stall, no where else (not on the 3 hours trailer ride, not when we're out working with him). My mom got one from the same feedlot at the same time that's also an amish buggy horse, and she's very different from him, extremely head shy, but other than that, super calm, is on stall rest for an abscess that developed under her road shoes and pads, and never paces, digs, nothing. Just stands quietly.
