He is not a lone horse, he has my main horse to hang with. I am his main handler, I am the only one who still has an interest in horses in my family. He is not ridden very often unless my friend (who is basically his 2nd owner) is home from California. When she is home he gets ridden almost every day. I cannot ride him as much because I am train my young mare (who doesn't have this problem). He is also on a grass diet.

It is very hard to work with because he has been desensitized to many thing (he is an ex-ranch horse after a hoof injury) and is also shadow blind in one eye. It is very, very rare that he does something wrong. He is very polite and does what he is asked. Being barn sour is the one negative thing he has. Other than that he is the perfect horse. But when he does something wrong, I give him work. Make the right things easy and the wrong things hard is what I was taught and has worked splendidly on my mare.
