Winkle, Winkle, You're a Star

He's big. He's brown. His name is Bullwinkle (or, "Winkle" for short). And, as with all horses, he has a personality all his own. As though his status as a Hanoverian horse wasn't enough to grasp people's attention (Hanoverians are one of the biggest breeds in the horse world), Bullwinkle likes to employ numerous tactics in hopes of attracting attention. Some of these include "cribbing," or gnawing on his wooden stall, and also being very photogenic, as I found him this past Saturday when I last visited him at my riding instructor's barn. Don't you just want to reach out and pet him?

So, what were you doing from 7-9 tonight? If you are like me, you were probably watching Ken Burns' new PBS documentary series "The National Parks: America's Best Idea." I was awestruck by the cinematography, immersed in every historical account, and in agreement with every argument made. For those of you who might have missed it, or would like to learn more about the series, or about the National Parks, here is the link: http://www.pbs.org/nationalparks/. Just like the parks themselves, this documentary is something well worth seeing! Have a great week, ~April~
