We are so thrilled by his progress so far and can't wait to continue watching him grow :)
Check out the full update on him via his adoptive mom below:
Three months ago I saw a picture of a horse named Jumpin' Jack Flash and I said to my boyfriend "there is horse in Maple Ridge at a rescue that I absolutely love" and he said let's take a trip over to see him. So we did and we did we absolutely fell in love with him and filled out a application. We knew he needed surgery and we knew it wasn't going to be cheap, but one look in Jack's eyes and I thought "wow! He's beautiful, smart and I must stay patient". I knew he deserved a chance to be loved and boy do we love this horse!
Today is 8 weeks since Jack had his cryptorchid surgery. It's been a long two months, but today he can be a normal horse and resume all regular training! He had his third lunging session and what a good boy he was. So calm and relaxed. We are having a great time learning new things together and that is the wonderful thing about our partnership.
This type of surgery didn't come cheap but a good horse is hard to find and Jack is worth the cost and time I put into him recovering from such a invasive surgery. I want to thank Dr Colin Scrutin for doing Jack's surgery and thank you to Beawolf Farm in Victoria, BC for helping take such good care of Jack. We are ever grateful and are so happy with him. He totally ignores mares and even with them in a field next to him, couldn't care less!
I look forward to the many more years we have together and the many things we will discover together.
As many of you now Jack is the older half-brother to Gunner, a gorgeous registered APHA colt who too is a cryptorchid and looking for his forever family. We can only hope his family will be as wonderful as Jack's.
