Re: [RC] Re:pacing anglo - Truman Prevatt

It depends on a lot of things. How complementary is their conformation? How much a tendency does the Arab have to throw his gait. Back when the gaited breeds were being developed, he may have been a candidate to breed to the current gaited stock to see if the off spring did have a strong gait. If they did would be a good candidate for breeding to gaited horses. This is how the walking horse and five gaited horse came about.

There are too many variables, however, to tell. In general when you cross an Arab with a walking horse you don't get the gait. If the Arab is gaited and will gait free in the pasture, maybe yes.

Ok, so what do you think the offspring would do if you bred Truman's mare to Heidi's stallion? I know you can never tell, but it seems like the odds would be for a smoother -riding horse than most Arabs with possibly more toughness than most TWH? Heidi, have you ever bred your boy to a gaited horse to see how his gait would be expressed?

Just curious. I wonder about things like this...
