Can You Sponsor a Table or Donate an Item for this Important Fundraiser?

New Vocations’ exciting Little Brown Jug Benefit is coming up Wednesday Sept 21 at the Delaware Co Fairgrounds in Delaware, Ohio.  This event generates much needed funds for the care and retraining of retired racehorses.  However, its success is totally dependent on items donated for the silent auction and on table sponsorships.

We seriously need help soliciting goods and services that are appealing.   A week in a timeshare is always popular, as are golf packages, tickets to professional sporting events, jewelry, art, tack, home accessories and anything equine related.

We’d sure like to have a Golf Cart or Horse Trailer to offer or a car or motorcycle.  One big item generates more money than 20 smaller ones.  Table Sponsorships are an excellent way to show your support.  Seating is Open so you don’t have to be present to sponsor a table.  Signs on the tables, at the entrance, and adjacent to the Bar give recognition to those that sponsor a table.  The table can be in your name, your stable, or a favorite horse.  It’s $400 to sponsor and $200 to co-sponsor.  All donations are tax-deductible to the extent of the law.

Please contact Dot Morgan at dot@horseadoption.com or call 937 947-4020 to tell us what you can contribute.  Table Sponsors can be made through the website via Make A Donation.  Scroll down to Specified Amount, enter amount, and note what it’s for in the Comments Box.   Every gift large or small is greatly appreciated.  The power of One person + One person + One person can make a huge difference.

5 year old, 15.2hh bay gelding
Located: Lexington, KY facility
Adoption Fee: $200

This cute little guy is the complete package – sound, no injuries, great mind and disposition and such a kind attitude. Standing 15.2hh, he is just 5 years old with only 11 starts under his belt.

He came into the program right off his last race on 6/18 of this year and immediately settled in. His first ride under saddle entailed trail riding all over the farm alone and he did not bat an eye at farm machinery or speeding trucks. Since then he has been lightly worked in the arena and has been started over ground poles and small cross rails.  He has been trail ridden extensively around the farm even going across wide open fields alone without a problem and appears to enjoy the company of the dog. He has never required lunging prior to riding even after a few days off.

He is kind, listens to his rider and is more than willing to try anything. He has great manners and is good to clip, shoe, bathe,  and will stand untied to be saddled.

Already on turnout with another gelding, he continues to progress and is good to catch and lead. This horse shows enormous potential in all fields and with such a fantastic attitude towards people and work, he will delight any prospective adopter! Just as Seattle Slew was racing’s golden boy, Slewlantic is ours, displaying a charm and warmth all of his very own!

Available for Adoption

6 year old, 15.2hh bay gelding
Located: Manchester, MI facility
Adoption Fee: $ 100

Unopposed is a  long legged, 15.2h bay pacing gelding. He has some lumpy looking knees and has been foot sore on and off since he came which may require him to have shoes in front, but he is sound and ready to ride. Unopposed last raced in September 2010, he had 91 starts making a lifetime total of $72,000 with a mark of 1:54.1.

Opie is absolutely bomb proof! This sweet dark bay gelding is willing to do anything you ask. He rides great on a loose rein, doesn’t mind when things bump his sides or trees brush against him. Terrain changes and running horses don’t seem to affect him in the slightest. He didn’t even mind the thousands of mosquitos that were attacking us during the last ride. He doesn’t change a bit from riding in an arena to being out on the trails. He seems basically inflappable. He is one of the laziest boys that has come through the program, needing a bit of extra motivation to get going. Opie would make a good all around or carriage horse for anyone. He has great brakes, takes his time to change gaits which makes his transitions easy to ride, and a big ground covering stride that makes him easy to ride. He is very comfortable at the trot but with some time he should pace easily. We even got a few canter strides out of him fairly easily. Overall, he should be a great addition to anyone’s barn.

He has been turned out with mares, geldings, & a pony with no issues what so ever.  He is great to catch, good to ship, and to trim.  Please contact me at regina@horseadoption.com
