Launch of: Harness Horses, Bucking Broncos & Pit Ponies

Harness Horses, Bucking Broncos & Pit Ponies: A History of Horse Breeds by husband and wife team, Jeff Crosby and Shelley Ann Jackson! The both of them threw an a-neigh-zing book launch, an art show, and even a fundraiser for Minis and Friends!

A few shelves were cleared to display the original illustrations at Bethany Hegedus‘s beautiful Writing Barn.

Check out the dessert table: candied apples, pumpkin cupcakes, and s’mores whoopie pies! Yes, there were some regular food too… but just look at those sweets!

Jeff Crosby and Shelley Ann Jackson busy signing books.

They also had posters, stickers, coloring pages, bookmarks, and horse sticks for kids to take home.

What beautiful weather! We find that one colors best when there are horses milling around. For a print-out of the coloring page, please click here.

Minis and Friends, a charitable organization that trains minis to be therapy animals and takes them to visit with special needs people, brought in the miniature horses.
