Joe is a 5-year-old, spotted saddle horse (black and white tobiano) with a heart of gold. He stands at 15 hands and may grow another inch or so. Joe is an 'old soul' full of personality and a pleasure to be around. He lingers when let out of his stall, waiting for a rub, or maybe if he's lucky, a carrot. His ground manners are impeccable and with you on his back he wants to please. He eagerly follows or leads on the trail, crossing all types of obstacles, trees, water, etc. He stands for the vet and farrier and loads like a dream. His gait is smooth, but he needs someone to ride him consistently, something I don't have time to do with two others in the barn.
