This is one powerful horse. He is a Missouri Fox Trotter and 20 years old. He has lived through laminitis that happened a year and a half ago. He is what they call an "old foundation Fox Trotter." They were originally bred for their strength and sturdiness on the trail with sure footing. They all have the powerful hind end. Gator's is amazing! Sorry to focus on a hiny (he he) but just look at the power he has there! HUGE! When you stand behind him, you can't see the front of him for the large powerful hips. The winter fur coat has started to come in. He will soon resemble a large bear. His name is Gator, and he is a true partner. He is mine... and I am his!
