is a quarter horse type, an all-around good riding horse. He has
been in some 4-H shows in Nebraska. He winters in Kansas at my house,
then in the spring he goes up north to Lincoln, Nebraska where his other
owner rides him. My twin sister found him among over 250 feedlot horses
bound for slaughter in Filley, Nebraska about four years ago. They are so
glad they bought him, he is a gentle horse who did not deserve to be in
the situation he was found in. He has such a distinctive circle within
his blaze, they almost named him "Target" but settled on Jack instead.
In any group photo, you can always pick him out of the herd because of
that big spot on his face. Jack has a very pretty sorrel color to his
coat, and doesn't mind wearing boots on his legs. His hooves are so
dense and tough he never needs to wear horse shoes, although our other
quarter horses need to! He was already trained to ride and load into a
trailer when he was rescued, we have to think that he was someone's good
horse at one time, but we can't figure out how he came to be in that
feedlot in Filley. All's well, that ends well, that is the saying! We
are just happy to have Jack and to nominate him!
