New Horse???

Joe has been talking about getting a new horse.  He has been looking online at horses for months now.  Today, he finally looked at one in person. 
Meet Magneto.  He was a rescue horse, untouched until he was about 2  1/2.  He was gelded and then put though a 120 day  training competition similar the the mustang makeover, which he won.  His current owners were hoping to  take him on a year long ride through the western states, national parks and BLM lands.  But have decided he is to sensitive to alternate between riding horse and pack horse.  So they have made the difficult decision to sell him and look for something more staid.
He exact breeding is undetermined, but the farm he was rescued from originally bred Arabians.  At the time of rescue, there was also a quarter horse stallion and a mustang stallion.  After seeing him in person, I think he is a high percentage Arabian.   Joe is wanting something he could endurance ride again and Magneto looks the part.
The owners were gracious enough to saddle up some other steeds for us all to go on a trail ride around their beautiful property.
And look what I got to ride, my first mule!  And she did absolutely wonderful.  Joe has a lot of thinking to do and a big decision to make.  We will all have to wait and see what happens.  We had a nice daycation.

Magneto looks lovely- look at that stride and how alert he is! And solid bay is a plus in my books.
Hope he's The One for Joe!
