Cynthia flew in from California on the weekend of 3/27/10 to take pictures and do a magazine article on singlefooting horses, and we needed a nice, gentle 'loaner' horse for her, and here she rides Lad next to George Foreman through the East Texas trails.
Lad and George's horse take a break at a rest stop during the beautiful day.
And Lad makes a perfect "Photog Assistant" while Cynthia takes pictures of crazy Tracy doing tricks on his Paso Fino stallion.

"Lad" -- Really beautifully-marked 14.2H 5-yr-old sorrel/white tobiano Spotted Saddle Horse gelding with really smooth gaits, an incredibly smooth and athletic canter, and doing it all BAREFOOT! He's had the 'official' barefoot trim for the last year and has been trail ridden, on many overnight or week-long camping trips, and a few parades along the way. Lad has a gorgeous mane and tail and his color is just very striking. He's so cute you want to pinch him on his cheeks! He is not registered any way, but is eligible for spotted and/or racking registrations if his new owner desires. Doesn't care if he rides at the back or the front. To ride him is to own him! $3500
