Get to Know Jack

Jack was rescued by the New Mexico Livestock from an unsafe living situation. He has begun in-hand work, and though he is still a bit shy, he is coming along nicely. Jack is fairly easy to catch and can perform basic groundwork skills in a round pen. He accepts a cinched bareback pad easily and will soon be started under saddle.
Jack recently had all four feet trimmed and he was a champ for the farrier! This guy is really done a great job of overcoming his fears but he sometimes will kick out when pressured to do something he doesn’t want to do.
