When Cranberry Sprite arrived at Bluebonnet, she had not been handled and had not even seen people often. Her first foster home did a great job getting her halter trained and on the road to recovery.

About Rosharon, TX
The Rosharon town site went unnamed during its early years. The area was settled by cotton and sugar plantations before the Civil War. Once the Houston Tap and Brazoria Railway ( Columbia Tap) was completed in 1859, the Rosharon stop on the train line was given the name Masterson's Station, after a nearby plantation owned by Thomas G. Masterson (ca. 1813–1884).
