Pets for Less Stress May 2017

During finals week Blinn College Brenham Office of Student Leadership and Activities hosts several events to help students get a break from the stress. One of these events is the opportunity to pet dogs, and this year a horse! TBAR loves working with Blinn SLA on this project.

True Blue Animal Rescue members brought a horse and several dogs to Blinn College in Brenham during their Buccaneer Blackout exam week. The animals are a fun way for the students to de-stress and relax so they’ll be able to continue with exams the following day. David Michener, Director or student leadership and activities, coordinated this event, called ‘Pets for Less Stress’ at Blinn. True Blue Animal Rescue is proud to support the community in this fun and innovative way.

Horse Clinic with Juan 2017

The Training Clinic was a great success. We all learned a lot watching Juan work with the rescue horses. The foster homes that brought horses went home with lots of new techniques to try while working with their horse to make them ready for adoption. We are all better at catching that hard to catch horse, round penning, lunging and ground driving our horses. Next session will be all about warming our horses up and riding! Do you want to meet some rescue horses and learn more about working with them? Watch our fb page and websitewww.t-bar.org for the next session or make an appointment to come meet them by emailing us at help@t-bar.org
