Adopted April 26, 2008
Jesse was a Quarter Horse who was purchased at Mike’s Auction by his owner at three years old. The owner was very aggressive with Jesse, and was so abusive that Jesse developed ulcers. Instead of treating these ulcers, the owner left him in his stall, and Jesse would colic regularly. He finally contacted us when the vet bills were over $8,000 and the vet refused to come out until he was paid. It took us several months of ulcer medication, but we finally were able to get Jesse healthy again. He was adopted by a very sweet young girl and her family, who were very patient and loyal to him; while he was a young and willing horse, they did not have good luck with trainers. Jesse eventually began competing in shows, and even won at an “A”- rated show. Not bad for a horse randomly purchased at an auction!
