Pahrump Fall Festival Parade

The Fall Festival Parade in Pahrump, NV was this past Saturday, September 27th. It turned out to be a huge success for the NWHA and our Mustangs. We met early in the morning around 7:30 A.M. and pieced together our game plan for the event. Some NWHA volunteers made some tasty breakfast burritos for everyone and we loaded up on some water in preparation for our 3 mile parade route down the main street in Pahrump. Most of our foals present at the parade had not been adopted yet, so they were dressed up with some "Adopt Me" blankets. We made sure all of the foals had adequate water before taking off down the main streets as well. Our section of the parade was led by our NWHA members and horses, followed by our pick-up and trailer. The foals made the entire route without any hesitation and the crowd absolutely loved them. Most of us were loaded down with business cards and by the end of the parade we were completely out. The best thing about the parade is that we were able to promote our Mustangs and four of them stayed behind in their new homes in Pahrump!! During the parade, Jerrie Bertola with the BLM Wild Horse and Burro Program, was checking out the facilities of local residents who had submitted an application. The facility checks passed and the adoptions became official. After the parade, we drove from one end of Pahrump to the other, delivering the little guys to their new homes. A very rewarding day.
