About Halcyon

Halcyon was discovered by law enforcement on a property where three horses had already died of apparent starvation.  She and the other remaining horse were signed over to Bluebonnet.

History

Nothing is known of Halcyon’s history before coming to Bluebonnet.

Health / Lameness

When Halcyon arrived, she was emaciated and suffering from wounds to her hind end.  The wounds have healed and she has gained weight.

Evaluation and Training

Halcyon is excellent to lead, load, and handle.  She stands tied for fly spraying, grooming, and hoof trimming.  We suspect shei s also broke to ride, but since we do not know she will be evaluated at the 2019 Bluebonnet Horse Expo on Oct. 19th.
