Hes 7 years old he's been at circle k for a couple years and the workers there never treat em bad.hes got good feet too. But his only problem is he over heats very quickly. I mean compared to all the other horses he looks like he took a bath after only 1 hour of riding. I don't ride him too fast either. He's shoed just got his done in front of me. He's really good with the farrier.
