THE MARSH TACKY:

Characteristics: The Marsh Tacky is known for its calm, gentle nature, its stamina, strength and trainability. Perhaps their most acclaimed quality, however, is their ability to easily traverse the mucky bogs and swamps in SC. They have a distinctive gait called the “Swamp Fox Trot,” which allows for a comfortable ride in rough terrain. The neck is wide and the withers pronounced. The breed's strong, short back gives way to a sloping croup and low-set tail. The hooves are strong, balanced and wear well.
