PRESS RELEASE Blue Star Equiculture is bringing five of their enormous draft horses to the Eastern States Exposition in Springfield from September 14th to September 30th, 2012. These amazing horses each weigh over 2000 pounds and stand over six feet tall at the shoulder! They will be participating in the daily parade and will also be available for photo opportunities with visitors at the Blue Star booth on the rear lawn of the Massachusetts Building. The star of the show is Magic, a former Budweiser Clydesdale who came to live at the Blue Star sanctuary in March this year. Blue Star participates at the Big E to reconnect people with these magnificent creatures and to help raise the funds necessary to support Blue Star’s mission to help horses, humans and Mother Earth. At its booth on the rear lawn of the Massachusetts Building, Blue Star Equiculture will be featuring several activities aimed at educating visitors about Blue Star’s mission, encouraging the community to interact with the magnificent horses and offering several ways for people to help support the Blue Star herd and improve the environment.
