    My BWP gelding by Nicholas has the best mind of any horse I have ever known, and my understanding is that this was a characteristic of virtually all of Nic's babies. My boy (Cabana Boy, pictured as...

    When I went to look at my now 10 yo BWP gelding, he was a lanky weanling. His owner/breeder put him in an arena with about a 4'6" board fence along with his pasture mate, an aged pony gelding. The...

    I have a Clyde/TB who I absolutely adore. He has the best brain of any horse I have ever known, and never forgets anything he has learned. Easy keeper, great feet. Wonderful work ethic.

    Probably, but two things would make me nervous about this place.

    First, the tone sounds like people who don't really enjoy horses. Things like how the horse could "drop dead" tomorrow, just...

    I think the comparison is silly. You are paying maybe $1-2K for the Finger Lakes horse. The OP is considering paying about twice the median household income in the US for this horse, that has zero...

    And this:



    For that kind of money, I would want papers (and therefore documented history), potential breeding animal or not. This trainer sets off alarm bells all over the place.

    I suppose, but it does not sound like the OP needs all the frills. Sounds like he or she needs a reliable vehicle that can go over fairly rough terrain and is reasonably priced. I think 4WD is...
