Scooter is a 10 year old Paint Pony. Bought for my daughter 2 years ago. He has a great disposition but has not been messed with for about a year. My daughter has out grown him. He has foundered and is on Senior feed and must have his feet done every 5 weeks to keep him healthy. He is great as a lead around ride but would need to be worked before turning lose with a beginner rider.
