Boomer is a papered quarter horse from Skipper W bloodlines born at a large breeding farm in Nebraska. Skipper W is a hall of fame stallion and is considered an important foundation sire. When he was very young Boomer was sold to a ranch in Penalosa, Kansas, where he worked for 7 years as a ranch horse.
Boomer was purchased by a Redwings staff member in 1993 from a horse broker who shipped him to California. In 1998 Boomer came to Redwings. Boomer has been an amazing addition to the Redwings family. Boomer has helped raise many young horses at the sanctuary, he is a favorite with volunteers due to his quiet nature, and he is a great teacher when children’s groups come to the sanctuary.
