16 year old Appaloosa gelding, 15 1 hands, Easy keeper, Very soft in the mouth, slightest of leg pressures, Tex has become the best Trail or whatever horse i have had, ie parades, mounted shooting. dosen't matter what you ask him to do he does it. He does all the things you expect; loads, leads, lunges, stands for ferrier, baths, fly spray, dosen't bite, dosen't buck etc. Has an amazing pace when out, the pace he starts with, is the pace he finishes with, Dosen't matter if its an hour or 4 hours. Tex would do his best with an intermediate to advanced rider.
