Happy Independence Day! Today was, as expected, a very long and busy day. It all started at about 4:00 am when we started our day loading horses and decorations to head to Taylorsville. Hwy 70 is closed, so we had to take the back mountain way up over the very top of the mountain to get there. There are just too many fires burning along Hwy 70 to allow the public to travel up the used-to-be scenic route. It was a long, slow, windy trip.
We got Dottie all decorated up, decorated the truck and trailer, and generally got ready for the parade. Here is Dottie visiting the Main Street Salon. She enjoyed going in there to look at all the pretty things and meeting the County Supervisor who was very surprised to see a horse (even a tiny horse) walk into the Salon.
KT Beaner all prettied up showing his true American spirit with his new adoptive mommy. He is going to have such a great home! She was pre-approved and was waiting for him to get a ride up there.
Here is our rescue rig going through the parade. The parade had stopped so Jason hopped out to take a picture. NorCal Equine Rescue got 3rd place in Commerical catagory.
Tawnee riding through as Best Dressed Cowgirl (1st place!) with Alex’s new adoptive mommy. Alex was adopted by Lori, owner of Main Street Salon, so that makes two adoptions today! Alex and KT Beaner! Both Alex and KT were led through the parade in support of our rescue. That little dot in the road in between Tawnee and Lori is Dottie, being led by a local volunteer.
And here is Donnay, Tawnee’s first horse. It was so fun for Tawnee to be able to see her again.
