I am from Gallant, AL and I've been a Club Horse member for 5 years and 6 months
Nicknames: Jaxxon isn't registered, but he has several nicknames. His nicknames are: 'Jax', 'Mr. J', 'Mr. Jaxxon', and 'The Jaxinator'.
Age: 8 years old
Breed: Quarter Horse
Height: Jaxxon is 14.3 hands (he should mature to 15 hands).
Color: Jaxxon is a bright sorrel with a star, blaze, and snip.
Type of Riding: I ride Jaxxon English and Western. We just trail-ride.
My Horse's Achievements: Yes! After a year, Jaxxon has finally overcome his (horrible) fear of vehicles! His fear of vehicles was literally so bad that I quit taking him for walks for several months because I was scared he was going to kill himelf or cause a wreck from the way he would freak out so badly. After he leapt in front of a car as it came by and barely missed being it last winter I stopped walking him for a ew months, and when I started taking him for walks again a few months ago, he was just fine with vehicles.
He's also finally started to relax fully when he's by himself, instead of getting nervous and calling the other horses constantly.
My Horse's Favorite Treat: Mr. J loves pears...
My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Jax seems to really enjoy his sponge-baths... He fals asleep while we're bathing him and is willing to stand there for hours while we play with the soap and hosepipe!
He also adores just being petted and loved on. He's always been a very people-oriented horse and it's very obvious. He'll stand with you out in the pasture for ages, regardless as to whether or not you're actually petting him. He just eems to love the companionship.
Pet Peeves: The Jaxinator doesn't really like dogs (ok, so that's the understatement of the year). He hates dogs with a passion and has tried to stomp my cousin's dog several times... however, he seems to know that my puppy is 'off limits'... He's never even pinned his ears at PuppyHound!
My Horse's motto: "Try, try, and try again."
