Friends, I am so thrilled to announce that Hawthorne Race Course in Chicago has offered to sponsor ASAP at both the Illinois Horse Fair and the Midwest Horse Fair this year!
In return, we will be handing out promotional materials for the track and display. What a wonderful partnership to have a major race track and ASAP working together to promote the breeds (TB and STB) and the industry, as well as a service for life after racing. We could not be more pleased.
Home for Gooch – a STB gelding in northern Illinois – trained to ride – light riders only
Aine aka Hope – coming 3 year old QH filly – she has had all her ground work and will be ready for saddle this spring
Brookview Snag – gelding – companion horse only due to injury sustained in last adoptive home
Thea Seelster – 16 year old STB mare – sound – in Michigan
16 year old STB mare in Quad Cities – dark bay – sound –
Audition – 8 year old STB gelding – broke to ride and drive – central Illinois
And of course, a host of sanctuary horses living out their days at the ASAP farm.
We wish you the best of health and happiness this Christmas season.
Remember, it is not too late to click on the Pay Pal button on our web site’s home page to make a donation before the end of the year. It costs ASAP $75 – $100 a week just for senior feed for the many 25-34 year old horses living out their days at the ASAP farm. Without gifts, the horses will not be maintained to standard.
Your gift is tax deductible!!!
Also we are once again hopeful that Hawthorne Race Course will be our major sponsor for two upcoming horse fairs. We were sponsored by Hawthorne last year, and we are hoping that they will do the same going into 2017.
Thank you to all who donated to our campaign that will be matched by Bill Gates’ Foundation. Thanks to Lori H. for coordinating this and posting it on ASAP’s behalf! Thanks to Curt A. for volunteering at ASAP. His volunteerism has translated into $500 so far, given by Walmart. Since Curt is an employee of Walmart, this superstore gives back for each hour Curt gives of his time to the horses. What a gift!
We pray for the strength to keep going daily this winter – we are so happy that we are over the solstice “hump” of the shortest day with least day light – and we are already saying, “Hurry up Spring!”
Thanks to all who make such a difference in the lives of each horse on the farm, and to those of you who support the horses with your giving. We continue into our 23rd year starting in January. Without you we could not continue!
