well that was a good read. I have bugger all experience with WA progeny. But could go all day with QLD'ers. However I do own a TRIBU mare. And I can see the fire! (And those god damn feet) But have done some research, and have bred two foals out of her. So this is just going off one mare, and a bit of question asking. But we have found them to be mentally late maturers. She has a colt over east now (By a QH) and he is going very well. He wasnt broken until 3, and taken very slowly. Doing very well. And I also have a weanling filly. Anyone had experience with Tribu's and jumping? Both these foals I have seen jumping random objects (hay rolls, logs) in the paddock. And I have seen this mare jump a water trough on a concrete slab, it was about 1.5m wide and only 30cm high. But she did it from nearly a standstill, and two weeks away from foaling. And my god that girl can run!! (her 4yo gelding has also shown this same quality, much to his owners delight) SO i have concluded, on limited knowledge, that their physical attributes are amazing, but have a mental wall which would need working over???? Any other opinions? I also own a mare by Dynamo. Just for a broody. But she is IMO just a superstar. Her only vice is her scrambling. And I worked with a Surtee in QLD. And fell absolutely in love with him!!! Just an amazing horse. Not phased my anything. And a character beyond anything I have every met.
