My 11 year old sister was determined she was going to get a horse, and after making my dad go all over the state set her sights on this paint who was close to $3000. I was working when they bought him, so I didnt see/hear/know mucha bout him til he showed up. We've had him since labor day and my sister wont touch him. She had a little accident related a panel falling on him (dont ask me how that works) that resulted in the paint getting a cut on his head, and her sliding off his rump. Since then she calls him the "crap horse".
They don't do anything with him and I feel sorry for him (not to mention I want another horse. FOR ME.) He also seems to..not really like people. Just his personality. He's indifferent. I ride him occasionally, and he hadnt been touched in a month or so when I took him out today bareback (a combination of im not afraid and just stupid all at the same time. Lol). He at first didnt want to go, and it was alot of "WALK" and persuasion just to get him to move out. I only rode him for 20 minutes, just a loop out in the giant field behind the house, and you could tell the more he walked, the warmer he started to get. He wanted to go go go.Actually, he always wants to go go go when he's been sitting stagnant. I don't blame him.
But something puzzles me...He's FIVE YEARS OLD. Would anyone sell a five year old as a child's horse? That seems crazy to me.
