El Guapo which means "handsome one", is a dark bay 18 year old gelding. He came to Dove Creek with Cisco in February 2017 from a family in Plainview. El Guapo has some definite hoof wall issues and is being treated with special shoes. We are seeing improvement and keeping our fingers crossed! He is one of our elder horses and is used in the volunteer program for new volunteers to learn horse handling and grooming. The older horses definitely require more care because they usually have health issues and most we can treat. El Guapo is no exception and with regular maintenance, he is maintaining his health. A sweet guy, El Guapo has become part of the Dove Creek family and not to mention - a good looking gentleman!
