Spot

Spot is our 20ish paint gelding that we have had for about 8 years. We ended up with him because a friend wanted to give him some time off from roping because he was lame. He never went sound so here he is. V and E both learned to ride on him. We've chased cows with him and even a boyfriend of V's rode him. He is a wonderful horse with really no bad habits but because of his lameness we really only use him when we have to.
He is lame in both front legs which makes going down hill a little difficult for him.
Our 9 year old friend from church was born wanting a horse. Her parents know nothing about horses but they have been letting her take riding lessons. They had promised her a horse by her 10th birthday (November).
They brought her out today to get introduced to Spot. I think he was a hit. Now they just have to build some fence and get a shed then Spot can have a new home.
