Great news!

Hey everyone,

I've got some GREAT news! Are you ready? I'm so excited I'm having a hard time typing. I think I might be giddy! Are you sure you are ready? The good news is - I am up for adoption!

Boy, that's so cool to say. I've been with BEHS since August and now I am finally healthy enough to go up for adoption! Those Bluebonnet people say I've gained a lot of weight - and everyone can finally see the real me.

So, would you like to take me home and give me a home of my own? A family of my own? Someone to love me? I know, I know... some of you reading this are saying: Who wants a 25+ year old horse who doesn't even have any teeth? Well, when I was a young whippersnapper, I would have said the same thing. Now I'm older and wiser. And I'm telling you, I would be an awesome horse. First, I'm gorgeous. Have you seen my gorgeous paint pattern? Anyone would be lucky to have that in their pasture! Then, I've been on TV people! National TV! People all over the world saw ME and loved ME! You could have a famous horse in your pasture! Maybe you could even be a little famous, too. Pretty cool, huh? Plus, I'm a nice old guy. I am not going to give you any trouble. Unless you are later with my dinner, then I might have to give you a little grief.

So, think about it... wouldn't you like to take me home?

If you live too far away, have too many horses or don't have room for a horse, there's another alternative: adopt a little me! Yes, you read that right. And Little Me doesn't need a barn or even need grain. He's a little stuffed horse - cute, huh? And I think he kind of looks like me, so I'm telling Jennifer to call him the Tex Horse for Bluebonnet. Good idea, don't you think? He's available on the Bluebonnet Website at - and the funds from his sale help horses like me. You know you want one - so go order one! Don't be shy! I would order one if I had any money... but the credit card company won't give a credit card to a horse. Hmph.

Ok, I think I see some new green grass coming up - and it has my name on it. I'm going to go chow down while you fill out your adoption application or buy a little me. Go ahead. Do it. There's no time like the present!

Loving life,

Tex from Bluebonnet

Howdy everyone!

I know, I know! You all have missed me right? I haven't written anything in months - but it isn't my fault! It has done nothing but rain and rain here, and my foster humans just refuse to bring their lap top out to me. They say I'll get it all muddy. Really, how rude of them! Don't they know I have an adoring public who wants to hear from me??

Well, I finally got a little break and am getting to use the computer. We've had a lot of excitement around here. First, some very sad news. A month or two ago, my foster human Kristin came out to de-worm me. Yuck. That stuff is super-nasty and I don't know why humans feel the need to shove it down our throat! Well, she shoved it down my throat and I spit it out. It fell on the ground and her dog gobbled it up. She didn't think anything of it, and I was just happy someone else ate that garbage and I didn't have to eat any more. But a few hours later, her dog started to have seizures. They rushed her to the veterinarian but lost her the next day. I feel so bad. I should have eaten my ivermectin and not let the dog get any. Kristin and her husband cried and I felt even worse. So now... I want you to know that dogs and ivermectin doesn't mix well! Apparently some breeds are very sensitive to ivermectin and it kills them. You can read one story here:

On a good note... I'm putting on weight and I've become such a handsome man. Look at me, would you even recognize me? And now that I'm putting on weight, I feel so much better! I can buck and run and play! I might be an older guy, but I've got plenty of life left in me! I hear the rescue is going to put me up for adoption soon. Is there someone out there who would like to give me a home for the rest of my life? I might be sassy sometimes, but I'll make you smile!

Now, I have to go run and buck a little. But seriously, think about giving me a home of my own!

Dreaming of my own family,

Tex from Bluebonnet
