Southside Jack is a Standardbred colt born April 21st. He came into the rescue on April 29, 2014 with his two half-brothers. They all share the same sire, Blissful Flight, a 2002 Standardbred who won $23,191 in his career. However his sire and the boys grandsire, Blissfull Hall, earned over $1.4 million in his career. He does have a freezebrand on his neck (7KS95).
Jack is the smallest of the boys (standing approx 14hh currently), but he has a very nice build and a gentle eye. He has been coming along well in his foster home lately and although not as unflappable as his half-brothers, he is good to catch, halter, lead, brush, pick up feet, etc. He is a very curious boy who is willing to learn, he just needs a quiet and patient handler. He will be a very rewarding project for an experienced horse person.
He has some great ground manners already and is at the perfect age to start building a bond with! And come May 2015 he will be three years old and will be at the pe0amazing temperaments and there is no limit to what he can do.
He is available FREE to approved homes with a 60-day gelding contract if anyone is interested in giving him a loving, forever home now. Adoption fee will increase to $500 if not homed prior to TLC and his procedure. He is located in Maple Ridge and suitable for an advanced owner/handler.
