… at BLUE STAR EQUICULTURE.
Drove down to Blue Star in Palmer today to see and touch the magnificent working horses at this special working horse sanctuary. The horses there sooth my soul … . Each horse (Blue Star has 32) so intelligent and sensitive, yet mysterious (to me). … Did you know horses’ lips are so sensitive they can pick up a single grain in a sandbox filled with sand? They get to know you when you offer them your hand to smell. They take in your scent … . Then they remember you forever! They get jealous if their pals are getting all the attention and throw their massive heads up and shake them at you to protest. Stroking the neck of an almost 2,000 lb animal – one so beautiful and powerful! – feels otherworldly.
Take the kids this school vacation to the country, to Blue Star … . Be mesmerized …
They are located at 3090 Palmer St., Palmer. Their phone number: (413) 289-9787
