the missouri fox trotter has been my horse since i started the game. i ditched the crappy horse you start out with and bought the mft because i have ridden them irl and their gate and speed are incredible. in the game it was proven the same. all of my friends have all different horses and say theres many better breeds and everyone i meet in the game at random have said the same. the consensus being that its too skittish and hard to handle but i have swayed a few of my friends onto the mft train by way of showing just how brave he is and how incredible the speed and stamina are. last week i was with my buddy rick and my horse got surrounded by wolves and stayed perfectly still. no bucking, no running, nothing. that turned him onto buying one and he's praised it. then friday i was huting cougars with another friend crystal and one came charging up at me and nipping around my horse's feet and again, stood absolutely still while she tried to shoot it. that sold her and she bought one saturday and has been using it since. one thing i will never spend money on in this game, is buying another horse. the mft has all the best stats and a wide variety of uses across the board. also does surprisingly well in the snow and doesnt slow down.
