The day it all began October 23-2009

It's been over a week now since I saved his life.
Bashful was headed for the slaughter house
not because he was old, crippled, ugly or useless -
he was simply misunderstood.
He's not crazy.
He's no more dangerous than any other horse sold that day.
He doesn't have a mean bone in his body.
His name is Bashful for a reason
and this is his story.


  1. Hi Michael,
    My name is Brenda,I live in Spokane Wa and I have 2 horses from this auction. 2 very good friends from Yakima were visiting family in the area by the TRNP earlier this summer. They ended up riding out w/a photographer and fell in love w/the horses. They ended up bringing back 11! 3 2 yr old studs (soon to be geldings), and 8 weanlings. The 2 I got are Socks a red roan, and the blue roan weanling filly, Neuens. I will be checking back on this to see how Bashful is doing.

  2. i was there when Bashful took his leap! Am so glad he went to a good home and i am excited to hear of his progress!

  3. Congratulations on your beautiful new colt and good luck with him! I look forward to following your progress with his gentling. Reading about his trauma at the sale barn brought tears to my eyes, and I am so glad he found a wonderful home! You might enjoy looking through my gallery of the TRNP horses taken in September at
