    Mr. Ruff is owned by Farmer Ridge Farm, located at 213 Thoroughbred Court in Taylor County, and is nicknamed "The Bopper" because of his walking head movements when he was born in Taylor County in April, 2005 at Farmer Ridge Farm.

    It was thought at birth his long legs and awkward stance might hinder his development. However, as time passed his awkward stance would vanish and hopes of being a racing horse would improve.
