Smile Our new (soon to be) horse- Rocky

My friend has been telling me of a "free" horse she new of so who could resist to check it out. He is so awesome, even though I really had doubts about looking at a "free" horse . My friend is a trainer, ex-shower, 4H leader, does lessons, etc and last year she was given this horse, she had it for a month and the guy that did her hay wanted him for his wife so he took her. I guess the wife has been to busy and the husband decided the horse was going and wanted to do the same as my friend, just find him a good home. I'm going to ride him some more the next week or so and make sure he's a fit for our family and apparently he's only been ridden 3 times this summer and was being a bugger about catching (most his problems are new and my friend never had these problems). But the BO said the women would come out couldn't catch him and leave..
His story as far as we know is he is a Morgan cross, came from a New York Boys Military Academy and was used as a Parade horse. He has a tatoo but that's all we can find. He's very good about leg cues and has an awesome slow jog, I didn't canter him because it was so windy out but my friend said he's got a great canter and will be a great 4H horse.
This is Rocky, any suggestions on breeds?

Nice looking for a freebee! Way to go. I'd be interested to see what his brand means.

I can't find it anywhere, I'd love to know too.
Thanks, we went out today and just worked on catching him a bit and with some carrots he did great. I think he was just left to be a horse for to long and needs some refresher. He seems to really like my 11 year old daughter goes right up to her. And she wasn't that thrilled with him because he's not a flea bitten. LOL.

He looks so cute! I love that big pony head. And his ears! What a cutie :)

He has a nice kind face, I'm sure he will be good at what ever you choose.
How big is he?

Awwwww he's adorable

What a good looking horse. I think you have the right idea. Go out with no purpose except catch him and give him a reward. If we only catch them to work them they get the idea. I reward with a back, belly, and leg scratch.

Thanks for all the comments. Yep FHF that was what we did yesterday except we gave him some carrots.
I think he's around 15 hh, I really had to stretch to get on him but I'm out of shape too LOL. He's taller than he looks in the pics.
