Would love to eventually when I get a homestead. Looking at Belgian or Halflinger for draft, wagon, plowing. Maybe something to ride too, just because I love it. But I'll have to keep my priorities straight.

Would that be Hoss from Bonanza, Hoss from History's Pawn Stars or the Hosses restaurant chain? :p :D

We have 5 horses
2 Arab
1 QH
1 Mustang
1 mini

Except the mini, they are trail horses. The 2 Arabs are retired gaming horses and do the trails nicely but they also like to get up and gallop in the open fields. Yee-Ha!!!

finaly down to 3, from eleven, not counting babies. All reg. Mo. Foxtrotters. Comfortable gates for riding any distance, enough sence to be able to work cattle with, and back when they were first developed they used them to pull buggies and plows.

1 20 y.o. Arabian gelding
1 10 y.o Paint Mare

Both are trail horses, but the arabian raced endurance in his (and my) younger years. The mare is really a woman's horse, she isn't too friendly with most men. Which accounts foer why I like my arab.

My brother went to the auction on Saturday.
A girl rode her 5 year old Arabian in to sell.
When the auctioneer couldn't get A $100 bid he asked her if she really wanted to sell it.
She said she had to.
It went for $60 and then her 4 year old Arabian went for $120.
She got that much because people felt so bad for her.
She cried the whole time.
Horses all went really cheap but cattle was 1.35 a pound.
