My new best friend

I got this new guy for FREE!
4yr old 16+hands registered Appy.
I just love him!
We are still getting to know each other and going through a lot of ground work.
He is ride able and from what I hear was started at two yrs of age with riding. (He just spooks off of everything, its a downer but we are working on it)

Here's one when I put the saddle on him for the first time. (And my son)
I didnt know exactly what his experience level was so I was treating him as an untrained horse. We did some ground work that day..
