Jack Sparrow
Their Story

Meet Jack Sparrow

Captain Jack Sparrow came into the LEAN program in June 2012. Found wandering in the desert, he was thin and desperate.

While waiting at Desert Pines for his thoroughbred tattoo information to come back, he was found to have a 4″ spike in one foot.

This 8-yr old OTTB gelding has miraculously recovered from this injury with no lameness or arthritis, and started retraining in Spring 2013

Jack was retrained by local trainer Jesse Mix to work quietly under saddle

He was adopted by a local thoroughbred enthusiast

Merry Christmas Jack!
