Happy news about animals

Horses, music and hot dogs all contributed to the carnival-like atmosphere at Walkin N Circles Ranch in Edgewood on July 11.
An estimated 1,100 people showed up to the sixth annual Hug a Horse Celebration, a free event with pony rides and free cowboy hats for the kids, a horse training show for adults, a bake sale, a yard sale and live music by Sons of the Rio Grande, Jimbo and Fiddler Bill.
Anna Bowser, a volunteer at the ranch, said there are usually around 700 to 800 people, but that the event gets bigger every year. It’s also one of the ranch’s biggest fundraisers, despite being free, she said.
