Wild Horse and Burro ambassadors greet Nevada County fairgoers
Triple-digit heat didn’t stop people from coming by to meet BLM Wild Horse and Burro Program ambassador animals at the Nevada County Fair in Grass Valley. Fairgoers could visit the booth and learn about the wild horses and burros, from August 8 to 13. (text continues below)
Volunteers Sue Watkins, Marcy Schaffer-Egot, Michele and Steve DeCamp, and Mikaela and Sierra Sawaya helped staff the booth and brought ambassador animals to the event. Mikaela and Sierra are going to take their yearlings to Fort Worth, Texas in September for the Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover. They picked up their yearlings in May for this makeover. We were very happy to have them at the Fair to show how trainable the mustangs are. Good luck to the Sawaya sisters at the competition!
Sue Watkins -- with Shasta’s assistance -- shows the crowd a safe way to teach a horse to pick up its back feet.
