What Kind of Horse Do I Have?
Leaving warm, sunny votes! After 6 months, Cisco came home for a break, and I was to continue with groundwork only. At this point, I decided to try and find out what kind of horse he was, so I sent hair samples to Cal Davis Vet Lab to be analyzed. The Breed Assignment came back 22% Holstiener, 18% Saddlebred, 12% Morgan, and whatever else he is was not in their data base of over 30 breeds. 3 months later, he went back to Steve's for more intensive training. After a month or so, I was able to ride him in a clinic Steve put on. He put on quite a show once saddled (he's very cold backed, and will kick up a fuss and buck when first lunged under saddle) Steve told me later that one woman had gone up to him and told him "You can't mean to let her RIDE that horse" and Steve said he replied "That's just Cisco, he's fine once the gunk gets worked out". Had a great time, even cantered him for the very first time. It was shortly after this that we tried him in a bosal. He hasn't had a bit in his mouth since. (Steve said bridling him was more my problem than Cisco's, but every time I put the snaffle in his mouth, all I could think of was his tongue).
