Bubba is one of five retired U.S. Border Patrol agents that call the ranch home. He arrived with Todd in July of 2020.
Bubba holds the honor of being the first mustang that the San Diego Sector of the U.S. Border Patrol adopted from the Wild Horse Inmate Program, W.H.I.P. During his 11 years with the unit, he was assigned 4 partners to help conduct Border Patrol duties.
Bubba was foaled in 2005. He was captured on Nov. 10, 2007, in the White Mountain Herd Management Area of Wyoming. This Herd Management Area is known for its full range of colors – this herd has a lot of color in it, many of which are paints. Other colors are bay, sorrel, red roan, black, or gray. The Wyoming horses have a diverse background of many domestic horse breeds. They are most closely related to North American gaited breeds such as Rocky Mountain Horse, American Saddlebred, Standardbred, and Morgan. The White Mountain Herd Management Area encompasses over 393,000 acres of which over 240,000 acres are BLM-administered public lands.
Bubba was only fifteen years old when he retired, but ringbone (arthritis in his pastern joint) brought him to retirement earlier than most equine agents retire at, which is 20 years of age. His ringbone is worse on his right front but has been manageable so far with proper farrier work and daily medication.
