Foster homes are the heart of the organization. They open their homes and their hearts to house needy equines. Some foster homes help rehabilitate starved equines while others work with equines who have training problems. Foster homes show their equines off to prospective adopters – and when their foster horse is adopted, they open their hearts for another.
If you don’t think you have enough horse experience to foster, don’t worry. Bluebonnet is happy to set inexperienced foster homes up with a mentor who can help them learn to foster. Many foster homes say they’ve learned more about horses by fostering than through lessons, classes or anything else.
