bluebonnet equine humane society expo 2016

Shortly after I met my sister's horse I joined the Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society. Just, y'know, 'cuz. They had their 10th annual expo out at the Travis County Expo Center today. It was a little overwhelming for me - seemed like most everyone there had tons of experience while I was just shambling around - but my impression was that they were able to get most of these rescued horses adopted. I was smitten with this four-year-old filly, Golly Gee. I don't know enough about horses to be able to tell you why. She did well on her training challenge, and she seemed calm and kind.


I need to learn more about horses.
