8-12 year old part-Arab, grade gelding
Rufus is T's horse. When we acquired Amyra she was only a yearling, much too young for riding. T hadn't ridden in years, and wanted a solid, steady trail horse. We got... Rufus. He's an indeterminate age, probably between 8 and 12 or so. There's definitely a lot of Arab (and I think some Morgan) in his background, which in South Dakota knocked his value down quite a lot. When we got him he was barn sour, not terribly friendly, and he had a nasty sore on one back leg.
But he was sound, had a sweet face and a kind disposition once he warmed up to his new people and surroundings, and T fell for him right away.
