Old Cowboy Ranch

Like most of our horses at the Old Cowboy Ranch, Black Jack was rescued in the nick of time.

Jack was purchased at auction by a meat dealer, promptly loaded on a livestock truck and was on his way to a slaughter house in Alberta.  Johni managed to convince the meat dealer that he should sell Jack to her and bring him back to British Columbia.

As a result of Jack’s mid winter trip to Alberta and back, in an open stock trailer, he arrived at the Ranch in ill health. After Johni nursed him back to health, the next challenge was that Jack’s feet had been severely neglected, so it took several years and extra care by the farrier to get his feet in shape to be fit to ride.

Today Jack is much loved, and the favorite of our webmaster.  When he hits the trails he’s used as the lead horse, a job he takes great pride in.
