Wild Horse Round-Up

We heard that the Bureau of Land Management was coming to Green Cove Springs this past weekend. So, of course, we had to go.

It’s an interesting experience for anyone who has never been. The first time I went I expected chaos and fear from the horses. There’s none of that for the horses in the pens. They are mostly hanging out with a couple other horses and eating hay.

We came to an enclosure with some of the most beautiful horses I had ever seen (with the exception of Friesians!)

Thankfully the entire pen was already adopted – or there would have been some serious discussions about how to get one of those gorgeous boys home with me! But I came to the conclusion though that as soon as I’m ready to increase my herd – it will be with another mustang!

About Heather Hamel

Growing up with horses is a little girls dream come true. Heather’s dream in life was to be a horse trainer - how dreams change - sort of! She moved to the wonderfully historic town of St. Augustine, Florida and was a historic tour guide and a ghost story teller while putting herself through college to become a special education teacher. After graduating, she felt the pull of horses in her life again. That's when she met Kobi! She learned quickly that when you own horses you become a part time vet, part time nutritionist, and full time equestrian. She wouldn't change a thing! In addition to being completely obsessed with her herd, she still teaches and tutors students with learning disabilities, and more specifically, dyslexia.

    I can see how you fell I. Love with their coloring. And they looked so well fed not a rib to be seen.
