He would need a fence line with electric if there's horses in the next paddock. He's very playful with other horses and now lives with a mini donkey and six yr old WB. He thinks he's a big dog with people and needs people around him that won't let him push them around... He's had a 70 yr old man that doesn't ride well riding him and he takes care of him. He's been put through training for therapeutic work and is a champ. He really LIVES FOR TRAILS, he will go anywhere you ask him to go. He's always been careful around kids of all ages.
