A note to potential sponsor:
Every horse needs several sponsors to fully fund their care, averaging $300 per month at Dove Creek Equine Rescue.
JJ is a 18 year old Appendix bred gelding who has been around the block! He came off a "kill" truck and was spotted by Frank Castillo, our horse trainer, immediately. Fiery, full of energy, and strong willed, JJ was a match for Frank! He came through training like a champion and was clearly suited to be a highly skilled team roping horse. Frank allowed PRCA riders to use him in competitions with much success for many years. He also turned out to be a great cutting horse and spent several years in the feed yard working cattle with Frank. When Frank took over as ranch foreman in 2013 at Dove Creek, JJ was part of the deal. He has been a real asset to our programs as a great riding/working horse as well as a teaching horse for volunteers. Being an "elder" has seasoned JJ, but we know he is one of our "go to" horses when a horse is needed on the ranch for work. We are grateful to Frank Castillo for allowing JJ to be a resident at Dove Creek!
