She loads with no problem and will stand to be tied, tacked up, brushed, whatever. Nacho, my gelding, is around 12ish. He is a great guy, chestnut, and a sweetheart. He hadn't been ridden in a long time (read about 3 yrs) when I had some medical issues, and then moved to Tx. When I finally was able to ride, I saddled him up, went down the road and had no issues at all. Didn't even lunge him first. A bit cow kneed in the back, but it never has seemed to matter with him. The people I bought him from, oh so long ago, used to rope cows off of him. He is not spooky and has the patience of a saint. He will load with some convincing, will stand patiently, and seems to LOVE water. Both seem to very good with kids.
I love them both dearly, but really want them to go to someone who can love them and give them the attention they need and deserve.
