  1. I’d like to comment about this article because there is something completely wrong with it. My family has been with Paso Fino Horses for generations and what this Mr. says about cross breeding is embarrasing. I believe this person is not an authority to talk about Colombian Paso Fino Horses. When was the las time this person visited Colombia? This is a liability to many businesses in this breeding. I guess you should research a little bit more about this and correct it. I’d like to talk to Cynthia McFarland about this and rectify these comments. My email is unocao@yahoo.com you can write back anytime.
