Pappy is one of the gentlest horses you'll ever meet! He was a racetrack pony horse who retired due to contracted heels from the shoes that were used on him. This sweet gelding needs excellent foot care and a light workload, but he will excel at whatever work that is! He is level-headed, friendly, calm, and smart -- he really could be anyone's horse! Because of his patience and ease of handling, he would make a fantastic horse for a beginner or a lesson horse!
