Smile Introducing ... Gunner!

Here is my new guy, Gunner.
5 yr old paint stock gelding (so they tell me, no papers on this boy)
He is turning out to be a real sweetie. He is green out on the trail, but very kind and has never offered to bolt or spook. Sometimes I think I should double check his teeth and make sure he isn't really 25, lol.
Actually, if anything he is a bit nervous on the ground, will jump if you approach too fast with a brush or wearing gloves. I think in a few months he will be perfectly quiet. Very happy with him!

Awe... such a cutie. I am a sucker for chestnuts. I think he looks very Quarter Horsey too.

Eliz, had to laugh at your phrase "little guy". He is 15.3 or 16(haven't measured yet), but to me he is HUGE! lol
Of course, I am only 5 ft and used to my 15 H QH. lol
