This little guy was originally bought for my mom. I figured she could spoil him instead of my foals and she wouldn't get hurt. He turned out to be a good babysitter for the weanlings. That was until he taught them how to get under the electric fence. Since he was teaching them bad habits I sold him to someone I knew for his weanling. He had a much better fencing system. Then we missed him too much and went and bought him back. I moved him to my new farm and he either baby sat the weanling's or stayed with the Jake when he still was a stud. He soon found a way to get under the fencing and ended up in the farmers soybeans. My friend Paula came down for a visit and fell in love with him. He has 2 little kids that love him and 2 pasture pals. One is a draft horse cross. Cooper stands behind him and lets his tail keep the flies off him. He loves his treats and comes in expecting them. I have to get some pictures of him next to the draft horse. The funniest thing he did was when I came up with the bright idea of using him in place of a cow to cut. The little booger reared up and came right at my horse. I almost fell off my horse because I was laughing so hard. At least I get to visit him from time to time.
