That's exactly it. Jess was so happy. And had the most amazing bond with Boomer ever. And at least she's now an angel watching over those who knew and loved her.
Boomer is doing really well, he's retired from jumping as he's got some stiffness and soreness in his hocks [they're not totally sure what from] so he's now doing trail riding, dressage, and some western pleasure with Brandi out at Moon Rock Ranch. MRR was a place close to Jess' house where she worked and rode for a long time. She was very close to everyone there and they all miss her terribly. There is an entire wall in the tack room just full of pics of Jess. And on her birthday and in march they did a balloon release for Jess. People around the world who knew her, or had just heard her story all participated in a balloon release for her on her birthday. =] But Boomer is visited almost daily by friends of Jess and people in the area who have heard the story and want to meet the horse that meant so much to Jess. Jessica's parents are really forming a strong bond with Boom-Boy and visit him almost daily. They are really starting to see exactly why Jess loved him so much. It's all really touching.
