She is best suited for an intermediate horseman and rider. She is currently used in our lesson program. She does not like a heavy hand. She works best in a bosel or hackamore. We suspect she was a speed horse as she makes tight turns and knows some patterns. We believe Eclipse came from an unkind background, she does have some scars. She is good for vet/farrier, trailers fine, stands on cross ties. She is currently barefoot and sound.

I am a 15.2 hh American Paint Horse, foaled in 2000. I sustained a severe injury to my left shoulder that wasn't healed properly. I have no muscle mass in my shoulder so I am not rideable. The vet says sometimes I may not have feeling in that leg. This was difficult for me because I love feeling important and having a job. When groups of people come here, they learn to groom with me. I help to teach them about parts of the horse. I just love the attention and love the children.
When I came to M&M I had a growth on my left eye. The vet said it was cancer. I went on a ride to the University of Illinois where I had the growth removed and stayed a few nights. I am so grateful to the people that helped raise money so I could have the cancer removed before it got worse. The vet said it was squamous cell carcinoma, which is common in horses with white faces. As long as I wear a mask to keep the UVA/B rays off my face, it's not likely for the cancer to come back.
I would really love a family of my own, especially if they have children. I get along well with most horses. I promise I stand nicely for the vet, carrier and chiropractor. And just look how handsome I am!
