The first The Backyard Horse Blog contest for Summer 2020 has come to a close.
I drew the winning email last night. Congratulations to the winner J.H.!!!
As it turns out, J.H is international. Per the contest parameters, J.H asked that the prize box be awarded to the USA horse rescue Forever Morgans. This is a rescue with whom J.H has a personal connection. How cool is that, right?
I had not heard of Forever Morgans and am excited to learn about them. Instead of being a rescue with a central location, Forever Morgans works as a virtual network. Here is their description taken from their website, “Forever Morgans is a breed rescue made up of a virtual network of volunteers that helps Morgans in dire straits find new homes. We are a “virtual barn” with no facility. Our horse are in foster care all over the country. Forever Morgans works with other rescues, brokers, and individuals to identify horses in need or at risk, and then helps those horses find forever homes. Forever Morgans is committed to each horse they rescue for his or her lifetime. Forever Morgans Rescue is a 501(c)3 organization recognized by the IRS. Our non-profit federal tax identification number (EIN) is 45-4935830. Donations are tax deductible as allowed by law.” Check them out at http://www.forevermorgans.org/.
If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you may have picked up on the fact that I am a horse-rescue fan. It seems fitting to me that the contest winner end up being an organization that helps horses in need.
Finally, I want to say a big “THANK YOU VERY MUCH” to each and every person who subscribes to The Backyard Horse Blog. I appreciate your welcoming me into your email inbox and sharing some time with me and the backyard ponies. I will leave you with a video link to start the weekend at https://www.pinterest.com/pin/780741285392865505/. Banixx Horse and Pet Care posted a hysterical one minute video entitled “What happens when you give a horse a squeaky chicken?” Puts a smile on my face every time I watch.
