    Here's another usless random thought.......

    What kind a horse are we talking about? And for each task should the horse breed be the same or different? For speed I want a quick Thoroughbred, for lifting and pulling I want the torque of a Clydesdale, for haying I want a easy comfortable gaited Tennessee Walker, for working on a slope I want a sure footed Mule(I know..not a true Horse...but close enough). And the list goes on and on for our arbitrary "horse power"

    Well THERE'S pictures I can't show grammie, she already drags me to every horse pull within drivin' distance now. Last week she took me on a weird route to go to the feed store to show me a pair of Morgans ( I think) she had seen. She mentioned how nice an addition they would be....

    Grammie and I have gone to events where they run very elegant carriages, with the riders in formal wear through what looks like a slolum course. I know they time them and give them penalty points for hitting the cones, but what you are doing seems quite different. What is the difference and do they have competetions like that in the South that you are aware of? Looks like it would be fun to go watch.

    in the formal combined driving events you get all dolled up for the dressage and cones part of the course, but you can wear grubby old stuff for the fun parts (ie the marathon section) of the course.

    We participate in other kinds of driving events here in the Pacific NW that arnt run as formal as the true CDE events. We also do the formal ones, but its actually alot of work to get the team , the harness and us all cleaned up and shiny. here is a pic of the wife in a dressage test, but you can see we cant compare to the big boys. What i personally like to drive most is thru cones course and thru trees. I also compete in team barrel racing and team pole bending events.

    Here are 2 pics like the kinds of events that your referring to (this one was in Kentucky last year). Mind you their rigs and horses cost in the range of $250,000.00 - 500,000

I am curious if you guys feel that your Kioti HP is right on the mark when it comes to its advertised HP - both for the engine and PTO.
    Check if there's a test report from the Nebraska Tractor Test Lab for his tractor. http://tractortestlab.unl.edu/testreports.htm

    As for a Kioti comparison, there's no Kioti reports but there is one for the Bobcat CT450 HST which is the same exact Daedong made tractor sold as the Kioti DK50 HST.
    The tractor is rated at 49 HP and 38 PTO HP and the dyno shows 38.89 PTO HP at 540 PTO rpms. Impressive!

    Excellent all round horse, our Morgan is without question boss of the paddock, powerful and stout and trained in both english and western.

    Kids have done well competing with him and our thoroughbred / Belgian cross.
