[RC] speaking of twh/mft - rides2far

I don't know if it's the gait that gives them downhill speed or the
build. Kaboot has always been a very fast downhill horse. Anybody who's
seen him trot out will tell you he's a mile wide in the back. When he
hits a big trot his hind legs are *way* wider than his body...leaves
tracks like a rabbit. When he goes downhill he just drops in the rear and
flies. Not sure what's going on back in the back.  I always have to wait
at the bottom for my traveling buddy. I've had a Walking Horse vet claim
she thought his stifles were bothering him because of how wide he slung
out his rear legs but he flexed clear. He's a bit bowlegged almost like a
Walking Horse looks  from behind sometimes when they spread out for their
running walk. Makes him have almost a wobble look when he walks but he's
never had any problem in the rear end.
