    Talking Foal Raffle!

    Okay folks...the website is up and running! Please be kind as it's a work in progress <smile> and it has been done entirely through the efforts of volunteers. Please, please share it with anyone and everyone - use your social media...put it on Facebook, Twitter, etc. Here's hoping it goes viral and we manage to have many phenomenal success stories to share with people !

    Website is:

    http://www.legup-aid.org

    Oh and one other thing...if you want to buy tickets but really don't wish to win a warmblood foal, you have the option of donating the foal back to Leg-Up Equestrian Aid Foundation, Inc and we'll run an auction on the foal with those proceeds going back to the organization, as well!

    If you see any blatant mistakes or errors on the website, just let me know and I'll try and get it fixed!

    Good luck everyone!

    This is such a wonderful thing you do Kathy! And what a beautiful boy! I have bought my tickets though I am not sure I really need a colt but I see there is a provision for donating back if I won and chose to :-)

    <smile>...thank you everyone. We've had some pretty incredible horse people in our lives so this really is easy to do! It just feels right .

    We now can be followed on Facebook, as well, thanks to one of our volunteers getting that page up! So please "Like" and share the information! We figure if everyone that visits the website buys just one ticket, this raffle will be a HUGE success!

    What a fantastic idea! And the colt is darling, his sire and dam are stunning!

    And, although I'm not quite sure what I'd do with a warmblood colt, I must admit, I bought a ticket

    Somewhat OT, but I can't resist.

    Know I'm dating myself, but does anyone here besides me remember the pipe tobacco company that every year raffled off a young horse at the Madison Square Garden horse show?

    Back when I was a horse-crazy little squirt, my dad smoked a pipe, & mom & during the promotion period we're lucky we didn't give him lung cancer with all the packages of that tobacco we bought him so I could send in the raffle coupons - lol!!

    My husband looked at me and asked if I was buying tickets just because of the cool name, lol...

    I don't remember that, but I do remember when Horse & Rider magazine used to give away horses and horse trailers! I remember having the pictures of the horses cut out from the magazines and plastered all over my bedroom!

    I sent in an entry every time I could scrounge up enough for another stamp. I didn't win though.

    I particularly remember a really pretty yearling liver chestnut AQHA filly and a very well broke grey Arab gelding!!

    <LOL> I'm glad some of you like the name. I have WAY too much fun coming up with new ones every year for Morticia's kids. Beetlejuice's half brothers are:

    Dracula d'Avalon (Davidor x Morticia) - he's two this year and we will see what he looks like next year, but are keeping him as a stallion prospect. He's gonna be a BIG guy!

    and

    Edward Scissorhands d'Avalon (Escudo II x Morticia) - He is three this year and lightly started under saddle. He will be presented in 2012 as a stallion prospect. So, Morticia definitely produces!

    Thank you to everyone that has shared the information on their facebook page and Tweeted the info. And of course, THANK YOU to everyone that has purchased a ticket!

    I am very tempted to purchase a few myself. Gorgeous foal! Would love to have him as my new prospect. *dont mention anything to my mare*.

    I bet shipping would cost a fortune from there to Ontario.

    Hmmmm. I wonder if Mr. Didgery would go for the "but I won him, and I HAVE to ship him here!" line.

    I updated some of the info on the web page as several people were asking where he was located and if they could pay with something other than a credit card Foal is located in Oklahoma and yes, you can send in a check if you don't wish to give Google all your information !
