117 Horses Need Homes
CANTER New England Organizer Writes:
Writing from the Northampton Fair, where we have taken 117 listings
(so far!) of some VERY nice horses for sale. 99% of these horses were
bought/shipped in by trainers who do not intend to ship them back
to their home tracks, and they *must* sell by the
end of the race meet. Incredibly good-looking, sound TBs with great
potential for a wide variety of competitive disciplines are definitely
to be found here! These are some seriously NICE horses.
We have uploaded photos and descriptions of the vast majority of
the listings we've taken. To see them, go to:
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE THESE HORSES (AND THE MANY MORE
LIKELY TO BE FOR SALE) Please stop by the fairgrounds. CANTER
NE volunteers will be available from 8 AM to 3 PM as well as next
Saturday and Sunday (9/18 and 9/19). And you don't have to limit your
trip to the weekends! You are also welcome to make an appointment
with specific trainer(s) who have horses of interest, if it is more
convenient for you to come during the week.
THESE HORSES MUST SELL BY
THE END OF THE MEET THIS WEEKEND. SEPTEMBER 19.
There is also a possibility that racing will be cancelled next weekend
due to inclement weather from Hurricane Ivan; if that is the case,
the horses will need to move off the grounds even sooner. Excellent
bargains are to be found everywhere, as are horses who really, really
just need and deserve a good home.
There are a handful of horses at the fair who have injuries requiring
some layup, and they are at-risk of going to auction. If you can open
your heart to one of these horses as a foster or adoptive caregiver,
please call CANTER at: 781-354-6291
as soon as possible. Time is of the essence.
Thank you and please do pass along the word to as many horse lovers
in the area as possible.
