We at NorCal Equine Rescue wish you a wonderful 4th of July weekend. Tawnee rousted up some old newspaper clippings and pictures of her Taylorsville 4th of July parade days. Her mom didn’t have a digital camera back then, but the newspaper recorded it.
1994 The buggy picture was taken, Tawnee is the little girl sitting in the front with her cousins.
1997 Here is Tawnee leading an emu and goat through the parade. This photo is still in the Plumas County visitor guide to this day, at least she check it was.
2001 – Tawnee had lots of critters and organized a walking petting zoo through the parade with many local children leading the animals.
2002 – Tawnee
and Cherokee, and her foal Kika
went through as Best Dressed Cowgirl, and got grand entry!
2003 – First place Best Dressed Cowgirl on her little BLM
donkey who came from the BLM
about 5 months earlier as a wild little donkey.
The newspaper clipping about the little donkey said “Impressive – that’s how folks described Tawnee Preisner’s
ability to gentle and train a wild burro in five months.” Tawnee
had her own extreme Burro makeover going on.
2004 – Jason and Tawnee
convinced Jason that going through the parade on a horse was the greatest thing around… Tawnee
got grand entry, Jason got 2nd
place (out of two guys.)
2005 – Jason drove through this year as NorCal
Equine Rescue. Yes, that was our original rescue rig. We led 3 horses through the parade, with volunteers sitting on the tailgate. Tawnee
, who was extremely due with Justin, sat this one out on the tailgate leading a horse or two.
2006 – Tawnee
got grand entry for Best Dressed Cowgirl yet again. She was be wearing a outfit that she decorated by hand. It was cheap white jeans and button shirt from Walmart
, all decorated out with purple.
riding through as Best Dressed Cowgirl (1st place!)
Equine Rescue got 3rd place in Commercial category.
Once again, have a wonderful 4th of July weekend!
