soo... you going to see if she will cut and compete? If she does.. this is a horse to BREED because this is what the Quarter horse is all about.
I just got a really nice German Shepherd Puppy and she herds her toys, especially her squeaky balls. It KILLS me not to have my dairy farm any more. I could see her working for me as nice or nicer than my first German Shepherd.
I would LOVE to have cattle and a couple of good horses and good dogs...............
I would love to do cutting with her.
I have no experience cutting though, so I am going to be training with her sires owner. He has trained for sorting, cutting, working cow horse, team penning, and a little bit of reining.
My catahoula has a lot of herding instincts, but I don't own any cows either. When she and Rally play its quite entertaining.
