As I said, though, I wouldn't be surprised if he was a draft cross.

I wasn't referring to you:) I just was looking it up and saw the thing about people being fools...
I was like wow really so just because people haven't learned every single thing about horses they are fools..
I appreciated the info from you and I love learning new things!!
I learn new things everyday and I soak up every single little bit of info I hear!!
He may just be a paint but we are not sure we didn't get much info on him, only what the person who rescued him in the first place knew.
He has a very sweet temperment but is very cautious of everyone. We believed he was harshly abused before his last owners. He is very scared of feet and goes to bucking as soon as you lift your foot to put it in the stirrup. We just barely touched him with the toe of a boot on his leg and he about jumped out of his skin!!
So we are figuring he had the crap kicked out of him!! We are working on trust with him as of right now, as soon as it warms up and we can get an exercise corral up we are going to start desensitizing him to feet and boots!!
If we end up not being able to do much with him we think at 18 he has earned the right to be a companion horse:) But we will not know until the work begins!!
