9. What are your riding goals?
To just get better! I of course would always want to really bond with my horse, and I'd love to improve that.
10. What is your favorite horsey memory?First time I went on a trail ride with Red, and yesterday, we saddled Red up for the first time since his "incident" when we saddled him and he acted so hot. I sighed in relief a few times. :))

Why did you buy him? Red was a gift from my Aunt. We connected and he needed to be away from the bugs in Florida due to his skin allergies.
How much did he cost? They gave him to us, but we gave my cousin a very old (And extremely valuable) side saddle.
Was he already trained? yes.
Does he love what he does? He loves being lazy and cuddling and trail riding, so yes. :)
Whats his Favorite human food?Hahaha! Well, he tried to steal the woman's (who takes care of the horses where I board him) potato chip yesterday... :))
Whats his Favorite horse treat? He seems to like the apple cookie things from Tractor Supply a lot!
Has he ever came close to death? Thankfully, no! I'd die if something happened to him.
Ever been sick/injured? His tail was broken once, he's had a couple scrapes and dings, but nothing too bad.
Whats your favorite thing about your horse? His sweet personality and cuddly-ness! :)
Whats his personality like? lazy, stubborn as a mule, attitude, yet very laid back, loves kids and will let you do whatever you want with him. I could do handstands on his back and hang from his neck and he's be fine.
Is he a greenie? Nope. He has had a couple saddling issues,  but once his saddle pinched him and he just remembered.
Does he rear?  never
Does he buck?never
Is he spooky? Nope! Calm as can be.
Does he load easily? Hmmm... last time we loaded him he didn't want to go in, but after a smack on the butt he went right in, and that was after he went from Florida to Tennessee. (Very long trip)
How long have you known him?I've known him vaguely for 8 years.
How long have you Owned Him? got him the 4th of September (2012)
