I’m Jess, Owner and CEO of SprayBoo. I have loved horses all my life. And I, from a very young age, have always owned horses and I have always lived the life of a cowgirl. And I have always wanted to use the beauty of horses and my bond with my horses to help inspire and motivate others. I grew up on a small, working farm in Missoula, Montana. Even as a young girl, I was greatly impacted by my horses…my heart and soul needed them in my life for me to be happy.
The love of my life was a large, leopard appaloosa stallion named “Skipper”. She was so beautiful and he was my girl. No one else could ride her and actually stay on her. It wasn't that she was mean to everyone else…they were scared to death of her and she knew it. When I was little, our cattle would sometimes get out of the fence and it was Skipper and I to bring them all in again. She loved doing that. She literally rode me hundreds, maybe thousands of miles bringing in cattle. I spent many, many hours on horseback and many, many hours just being with her. I talked to her just like she was a person. I will always, always be grateful for having such a beautiful horse in my childhood and young adult life. She truly helped shape me into the woman I have become.
I practically grew up in our barn, a beautiful structure in which I felt more comfortable than a house. You may have heard the song, “The house that built me” by Miranda Lambert. Well, our barn was the barn that built me. I was always, always in the barn. I would even take my books to the barn to study. The “feel” of an old barn can’t be beat. I guess that is why now I love getting good shots of old barns. I like them much more than beautiful homes!
My childhood and young adult life evolved into my “now” life with my horses and the creation of SprayBoo. I now own 10 horses and a “new” mare that has come to live with us. And most of the time, I have visiting horses that stay on our property for extended periods.
