Benefit Horse Show

So, this past Sunday was our benefit horse show at the farm to promote the cause of finding adoptive homes for  ex racehorses, who have been injured or are not fast enough from entering the slaughter pipeline. Unfortunately, we did not get the entries we were hoping for. We also has T-shirts made for the event and still have LOTS left over! I designed the logo and I think the shirt came out fantastic! If anyone is interested in purchasing a T-shirt and helping the horses go towww.thinkyourride.com and to the "pay here" link.

The silent auction bombed! I had so many great items. People were so generous with their donations. I am not giving up!  I am taking what I still have  and doing an online auction. Hopefully this will do better
On a good note, a thoroughbred was adopted out AND it is being boarded at our farm. His name is "Laud Lazarus". So we get to see & play with him.

We also received lots of media attention and maybe more people will take a look at one of these amazing horses, when looking for a new horse.

My daughter, Mariah rode my horse "Jerry" and was Reserve Grand Champion OTTB for the day. Her horse, Hoy, is injured and could only be shown in the parade and in hand classes...which he won!

All in all a good day and I am very proud of what we all accomplished.
