FOLLOWUP: See Jeb the miniature horse in his new home

That’s Jeb the miniature horse, formerly of West Seattle, now in Taos, New Mexico, getting used to his new home. Eight days ago, we reported on his impending departure. He had lived in a greenbelt-adjacent Admiral yard for more than 15 years, a present for two little girls who are now grown. He’s now with them in the Southwest, where the weather and grazing grass are expected to be better for his health, and he’s with other horses (as shown above). His family sent the video to let you know he arrived OK and is settling in!

      The weather here in Western Washington is far better than searing-hot, tinder-dry Taos.

        Some people love deserts, some hate them … but as noted in the original story, the hot/dry weather is expected to be healthier for Jeb.

        Taos is dry but high elevation, so it shouldn’t get that hot.

    Great follow up on Jeb!

    Nice to see.  I worried about him all weekend.  

  • Rick Cook April 26, 2021 (9:38 pm)

    We all need to move to Taos.

    I remember when Jeb got loose years ago. My daughter and I were driving home from school and saw him trotting down the sidewalk! It was quite a sight to see. We joined the other volunteers and helped to wrangle him and return him home before he trotted all the way to Admiral. We were so relieved that he cooperated. Everyday I passed his little green belt, I’d look for him and sometimes stop for a pet. This video was wonderful… it’s so great to see him clearly excited to meet his new friends! ❤️

    Thank you for keeping us in the loop on Jeb.  Such a West Seattle Icon. 

  • ~Hockeywitch~ April 27, 2021 (12:02 pm)

    That whinny sure sounded like an approval  from Jeb.  Glad he is still with family, and has a great place to live out his years… Happy life to you Jeb, with your big little girls that loved you from the start.
