    I rode them when I was young. They are starting to look nicer as my bones start to creak. I am not old today. Tomorrow is my birthday. Then I will be old...............

    Speed, I'd be willing to bet you money that if you ride one, you'd own one. They are becoming popular out West as people discover you can use them on cattle. Cowboys used to treasure their horses (quarter, paint and apps) that did an Indian Shuffle....now they have found out that TWH's can drag and push cows just like quarter horses. Just gotta find the old style TWH...they're more solid and substantial. Just like with the Morgans, people are breeding finer boned, "racier" looking types for show. The older lines are better "using" horses. But that's just my opinion. I've been known (often) to be wrong! LOL Who woulda thunk it????

    Happy Birthday in Advance, Celeste. Just beware of that TMB syndrome. It will catch up with you no matter how you try to avoid it.

    I'll be honest Hag, I don't like their heads. If I could find one that didn't have such a clunky looking head and pig eyes, I might be tempted.

    I know that pretty is as pretty does and you don't ride the head, but it's hard for me to look past something I find unattractive.

    Oh and speed, the head may be horrible to us Arab folks, but my vision is rapidly going down hill anyway.............

    Maybe that's what I need to do; just stop using my corrective lenses.

    Part of the reason I was so readily agreeable to taking JJ is because of his pretty head and big, soft eyes. The rest of him is nice too, but those two things really sealed the deal for me. I never knew I was so shallow when it came to horses, because I don't base my attraction to human males on their looks.

    I've always been a sucker for big, soft, eyes and I've found them in gaited horses. I do have to admit their heads are HUGE... but as long as the eyes are big and soft and dark (PLEASE NO blue eyes...they creep me out!), the head is fine. My SSH actually had huge, sleepy eyes... Of course sleeping and eating were two of his favorite pastimes! LOL

    TMB= Too Many Birthdays. It's something you suffer from until you STOP having birthdays. Then you don't suffer at all....you're just D.E.A.D!

    SMB = Short Body Syndrome. As you age it gets shorter. I used to tell people I was fluffy...Now I'm just undertall. If I was as tall as my husband (almost 6'4") I would NOT have a weight problem. I KNOW I'm supposed to be beyond this, but I blame it on my parents. If THEY had been taller.....I might be able to eat that birthday cake!!

    Jet sounds like a wonderful horse! A little tall for us shorter folks, but the parking out helps. I think he is quite attractive & his tempermant sounds wonderful. Maybe you will have a short search.

    I did manage to get videos of him up on the gaited horse thread.... Take a look?

    Cacow...Big was 14.2 hands and I figured 2 inches wouldn't kill me. Bigger will be better, I hope. I don't need anymore pony attitude!
