About Jingle Bob

Jingle Bob was turned over to Bluebonnet when his owner could not keep him.

History

Jingle Bob was born on his former owner’s farm but was not handled much before coming to BEHS.

Health / Lameness

Jingle Bob has no known health or lameness problems.

Other

Jingle Bob won first place in the non-professional in hand division of the 2018 Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge with trainer Frank Sill.

Evaluation and Training

Jingle Bob had not been handled much before coming to Bluebonnet.  His foster home worked with him, and tthen he spent four months in 2017 preparing for the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge.  Jingle Bob placed 6th in a very competitive In Hand Division of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge in 2017. 

His Training Challenge partner says, “Jingle Bob is coming along nicely with his training, is current on all vacs and worming, and a joy to be around.  He gets along great with his pasture mates, dogs, cats and sheep, loves the pond,  and super easy to catch.”

We are looking to place Jingle Bob in a home who will not start him under saddle until he is at least three years old.  He’s a great age now to work with on the ground so he’ll be ready to start under saddle next year.
