El Capitan Finds New Home
Karen insisted on a gaited horse (a paso or paso mix).
Finally a few weeks ago Karen decided to buy El Capitan, from a dairy farmer in Poterillos. He is a beauty with a couple of issues: he is 13 and still a stallion; his feet are in need of a lot of trimming; he has lived by himself for 4 years (no other horses, only cows). How he will behave with other horses is still a mystery. Karen is getting him cut (gelded--no more stallion), so he CAN be with mares without impregnating them. The Question remains: will he still think he is a stallion and act like a 'proud cut' gelding. Only time will tell as he has not been cut yet; and he has not been on a trail ride with any other horses. We all wish Karen well as she absolutely loves this horse.
