Ace is old but still has fire in him. He is experienced and knows his job. My fastest time with him was a 3.01. I learned to rope off him and now I am going to rope at the college level thanks to him. He does get hot in the box but I have natural ways to calm him down. No medication needed. He does get injections in the hocks once a year. He eats fine but his age is starting to show. Right now he is out to the pasture and has lost some muscle. No doubt in my mind he will gain it back and keep weight on.
