Horse Tradin'

Today I traded my very green 4 year old appendix qh mare to a local trainer/riding instructor for her 16 year old been-there-done-that retired high school rodeo horse, plus two months of lessons for my kids.
He has a funky hoof, and will never be totally sound again because of a nasty barb wire injury 7 years ago, but he is incredible- gentle and patient, and really well trained. So excited to have a babysitter/teacher/confidence builder for the kids!They have a pony, but he is young and green and somewhat of a terrorist still. . . . I'll have to post some pictures of the new guy tomorrow, but I just thought I'd share. . .

WooHoo, finding a good horse for your kids to learn on is always good.

I'm so excited! We were definitely needing a horse like him, and hewas needing a semi-retirement home and some tlc, so it works out well. I'm going to start another thread in the horse health section to discuss his hoof issues, because there certainly are issues! But, we are delighted to have him!

Aw, he is a cute old fella. I would guess his lameness issues are on the front judging by the way he's standing. Hope you can get him fixed up.
