The quirkier the better – Two $500 prize gift baskets from Farnam!

Every senior horse has a quirk–be it funny, endearing, or downright annoying–and we want to hear about yours! In 300 words or fewer, tell us about your senior horse’s silly behavior, including where it came from, how it’s evolved as he or she ages, and how you’ve come around to accepting that it’s just part of your horse’s lovable personality. Please also include a high-resolution image of your horse and, if possible, a video of your horse’s quirk in action! Prizes will be awarded in youth (under age 18) and adult (over 18) categories, and the winning essays will be featured in the November/December issue of The Northwest Horse Source Magazine!
