In 2007, I adopted a registered Arabian through Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society. I am grateful that this wonderful organization cared for my sweet, rescued mare until she found her forever home. I have since become a member of the organization and volunteer with them when I can. This group is amazing - helping, feeding, healing those equines who have been all but forgotten. BEHS maintains a solid foster program to house these horses until they, too, find their forever homes. I continue to be in awe of the individuals who are involved with this group. They do all they can to ensure the well-being of as many horses as they can because they care. You can't ask for more!
