History:  Arrived as a 5 year old that was supposed to have been started under saddle but he needed additional training to get him ready for riding.  He was initially cold backed and needed a lot of time to warm up before a ride, but a volunteer worked with him for a few years to get him to be the pleasant riding horse he now is.  He is sensitive to gnat bites and gets very itchy in the summers, but since coming to Royal T Ranch, he improves yearly.

Sparky was his name, however, Royal T already had a Sparky at the barn. He was given a nickname of Sparky Blue because of his blue eyes. Currently, Sparky Blue is in training, but could use the exercise and consistent work schedule.
