Black Scootin’ Bootie (Scoot) is an 8-year-old black quarter horse mare that was treated at the OSU Center for Veterinary Health Sciences.
She was suffering from an infection and was seen by Dr. Lyndi Gilliam, Equine Internal Medicine Clinician. Despite an extremely intense therapy, Scoot’s eye had to be enucleated. However, that hasn’t slowed down this competitive horse or her rider, Lyndsey White.
Lyndsey and Scoot compete in barrel racing and pole bending competitions. According to her parents, Tom and Rhonda White, this dynamic duo finished the regular season in Texas High School Rodeo Region I in 6th place overall in Pole Bending. This one-eyed horse is off to Abilene, Texas, where Lyndsey will ride her in the Texas State High School Rodeo Finals June 10-16. Also they will be competing at Vernon, Texas, in the Tri-State High School Rodeo Finals June 1-3. They finished the regular season in 6th place overall in pole bending as well.
Congratulations and good luck to Lyndsey and Scoot!
