Le and Lo Difference
What is the difference and when is each used? For example, I would like to say: "I bought him" (speaking about my horse) Would I say "Le compré" or "Lo compré"?
"Lo" is the masculine direct object pronoun. You bought the horse. "Horse" is the direct object. If you want to use a pronoun it should be "lo". Lo compré. "Le" is an indirect object pronoun. It would not be correct (but many people would use it) in this sentence.

Le is correct, although occasionally you will hear Lo.
Grammatically, Le is a personal pronoun and Lo is a simple pronoun for masculin gender. La is both personal and simple female.
