Re: [RC] speaking of twh/mft - heidi

Only wanted to say that you don't necessarly get a more laid-back
disposition by crossing a Walker with Arab!  Mine was the most
strong-willed, nasty ALPHA mare, hot, and difficult. I do remember some
comments by a fellow who competed on TWH, and told me they "can"
sometimes be very bullheaded....(does that ring a bell for anyone?).
Cross bullheaded breed with a breed than can run all day, and you can
get....the horse I had!

My Arab/TWH was a much hotter horse than my daughters Arab

Likewise, I've seen no advantage to Walkers over Arabs in the disposition
department.  On the whole, I've seen more difficult Walkers
percentage-wise than Arabs!  That said, I've also seen some really mellow,
cooperative Walkers.  Just like anything else--it pays to stick to family
lines noted for producing good dispositions, and go with the individual!
