My perch cross who just did her first training came off CL in an ad just like this one. I'm trying to get my BO to bite, but if someone wants a great little prospect, check her out! There are a bunch of COTHers in Knoxville who could take a peek and I will cut someone a deal on starting her if they buy her!
Here's my 15.2 perchie/QH doing her first T stadium round... don't underestimate the draft crosses... they have some power behind!
What a smart forward careful perch x you have--a great team you make.
I have worked just a couple perch/perchx in my life and both were so surprisingly forward, I really enjoyed it. If I were closer, or shippers didn't have to charge so much with current fuel prices, I'd be all over her. I'm becoming a fan of Perch/crosses. Someone get her!
Here is a short video of my 4 y.o Perch TB cross from last Saturday. First time he has ever seen a grid, we eventually built up to 4 in a row, and he never batted an eye. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZ_SGYJzwLQ
I didn't have a problem getting her fit, in fact, at Poplar at the beginning of May we decided she was TOO fit- she was about to come out of her skin- so we backed off. She was doing 3x5 trots and 3x3 canters, but she is not your typical draftie. I'll post a thread devoted to her first training a little later.
I am sending my friend out to check out Miss Perchie the Second, but would prefer someone else claim her! I will only be able to take her if she's going to be a fairly quick resale, so if she isn't pretty steady and quiet, it'll be a pass for me. SO... keep networking this pretty gal!
