jazz story

Each story we hear about JAZZ 52 babies touches our hearts but this one is super special.  Melanie Capps Crites has the full brother to Rockettes Jazz that we have here at the farm.  She bought the mamma at a sale not realizing she was pregnant and calls him her unicorn for good reason stating "he is my favorite horse that I have ever owned".   The mare had one eye and was covered in rain rot, half-starved and her front teeth did not touch.  Just pitiful and in need of a home at age 23.  She now has a great forever home and in return gave Melanie the perfect horse which she was not expecting.  However, the situation was touch and go as the mare was in such bad shape and the colt suffered colic at 4 months from worms even refluxed the worms out his nose for 8 hours so Melanie didn't think he'd pull through but he did.  Now he is a beautiful and talented horse that will do great things! 

Thank you Melanie for sharing your story of triumph with us here at Big Oak Farm which we hope touches others as it did us! - David & Ginger.
