Jackson is a handsome bay mustang who came to AAE in January 2017. He was gathered from the Virginia Range in late 2016 after his band was found to be crossing a stretch of highway too often, creating a dangerous situation for both the horses and the users of the highway..
He has proved to be a sensitive boy, quite resistant to humans, but he is willing and tries very hard. Jackson is playful with his buddies during turnout time and he is to be quite athletic. Jackson tends to get his confidence from another horse, often an older mare, and he's also acted studly in that he'll pick a couple mares for his own band. Jackson has had many, many gentling sessions and has a "50 First Dates" state of mind. Flash forward to December 2018, and we're at 5050 first dates and Jackson is finally thinking about crossing over into the human world. He'll accept someone approaching him in a large area and touching him, something he wouldn't consider previously.
Jackson is current with vaccines, deworming, and dental care. His hooves are still a work in progress.
