"Whinnee! It was a marvelous experience" said Beanie. "This was my first trip to the West Coast. I heard some funny things about it from my pals out east, like they have expensive carrots and every horse there had manicured hooves. This was not true. The horses are the same, and the people were nice; just more tanned."
Beanie chronicled his visit below.

Off to the economics department.
|"These people are smart" thought Beanie|
"We were happy to see Beanie at the Economics building," added an unnamed student. "He was a quick learner, too!"
Beanie then made his way to the bookshelf of So Cal Thoroughbred Rescue's Caroline Betts.
|"Whinnee. I did not think economics could be so fun" said Beanie|
"In this case, we're okay with that," said Ms. Betts.
After being prepped, Beanie moved on to the "white board". It was here he started to learn about takeout.

|Beanie startled. "Holy Whinnie" he exclaimed|

"I would like to thank everyone for treating me so well at the University. It was an eye-opening experience and one I will never forget. A big shout-whinnie to everyone out there working to help grow our sport, and give horses like me a better life."
If you'd like to help Beanie help other horses please consider giving to your favorite horse retirement charity. They need our help.

Love it! Thanks for appreciating and publishing a piece about the visit :)
Although I am pretty sure some of our members are looking at Beanie's last Pace fig to see if they should make a wager, we like to have a little fun here sometime :)
Thanks for doing what you do. In light of much of the recent horse retirement news, the horses need all the positive promo they can get!
Laughter is not only the best medicine it can also be an effective teacher. Thanks for perhaps opening some doors slammed shut previously by more vitriolic publications. Love to see more.
"These people are smart" .... like Jeff Mullins.
