Express - Dec. 2 - Fort Worth Stockyards
On December 2 over 2,000 people
from all over the U.S.
descended on the Fort Worth Stockyards for the
Snowball Express event.
The mission of the Snowball Express organization
is to create hope and memories
for the children of our fallen military
heroes who have died while serving our country since 9/11.
these families who made the ultimate sacrifice together.
The Gypsy Horses of A Wizards Spell Ranch were proud to be a part of
heartwarming special event for these families.
We were also so
very proud of the very young stock we took to this event
incredible behavior in the face of so much stimulation.
Sometimes I think
they just know.........
sweet 2012 filly, Doozie's first trip away from the ranch.
She is only
seven months old and couldn't have been better behaved or kinder to everyone.
If you can't read the wording......I hear voices in my head and wrote
Doozie " Hey, Mom, we blend right in! "
from Linda " Quiet, They don't
know we are here....."
crowd indeed !
let the kids (and adults) into the pen to brush and pet each horse.
Everyone had a great time meeting the Gypsies and there were smiles all around.
Her parents arrived at our ranch from England, but sweetie filly Doozie
is a TRUE AMERICAN !
The funny part is that the big horses snorted at Doozie, not the other way
Also in attendance were Eric & Christie and their two
amazing geldings, Waverly and Halston.
This was also the first time away from
home for them (the horses, not Eric & Christie) and
they were amazingly calm,
quiet, and sweet to the families. ( again, the horses, not Eric & Christie:).
Santa "dropped in" (literally), planes overhead, popping balloons, loud
noises, what a party....and what sweet quiet horses.
brought our driving cart and fun hats and antlers for everyone to take family
photos. Another big hit.
Doozie was "practicing" for her future driving career. No, she's not
hooked up :)
And thank you Stephanie for all of your help all day.
We can't thank enough Kristin Jaworski, Trail Boss, and the Drovers from
The Fort Worth Herd
