Scenes from the 2016 NRHA Futurity

Once again I had the opportunity to attend the National Reining Horse Association‘s marquee event: The NRHA Futurity & Adequan North American Affiliate Championships.

I was doing coverage of the NAAC for the NRHA Reiner, and, as always, the experiences did not disappoint.

Sometimes the Futurity isn't just about the horses. This 5-month-old Kangaroo joey is named Rosie Roo, and she was attending her first Futurity with her owner.

That moment when you hear, "THE SCORE...." during the Open Finals. Andrea Fappani won the Level 4 on Spooky Whiz with a 225.5.

New Arrivals at Woodford Humane Society

Last week my husband and I headed to Versailles, Ky., to volunteer our time for the Woodford Humane Society (WHS). I offered to take some photos of their newest arrivals so they could share them on social media and on PetFinder in hopes that these dogs find a new, forever home before Christmas.

I wanted to share some photos with you in hopes their smiling faces make your day. If you’re thinking about bringing home a new pet this winter, I highly recommend checking out your local humane society or rescue. We adopted our cat, Sarabi, from WHS a couple of months ago and she’s been a great addition to our furry family.
