Cold, Windy, and Wet 3/25/11

We have been having some crazy weather out this way lately. Some weeks it will be warm and you can basically go shirtless and soak up the sun. Other weeks it will be cold, windy, and wet..like it was today. The benefit of all that wintry weather staying around is that it makes for some awesome pictures. Augustus is doing fine. No major updates really. We haven't been terribly active due to the high winds and blowing sand, but hopefully soon we will be back out exploring and learning new things.

We do have the Ride for the Mustangs coming up, so maybe in a few days the weather will ease up and we can continue polishing up and getting prepared for that event. With one ACTHA ride already under his belt, we hope to leave everyone else in the dust on this one! It is in June, so we have plenty of time.

Augustus will also be heading to the Las Vegas Petapalooza event this year on April 6th to represent the American Mustang on behalf of the National Wild Horse Association. The event will be at the Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, NV. This will be Gus' first appearance at the event and I think he is looking forward to meeting some new people, hoping to snag a few treats, and help spread the word about our Mustangs and succesful adoptions. Keep your fingers crossed for us!
