    Thank you all for the questions! I would prefer by September first if at all possible as it does take me some time to organize but of course I would never turn anything away. The ride is scheduled for September 29th and I am absolutely desperate for donations. How nice does it need to be? Just usable. People love good deals and the used tack auctions off very well in the silent auction. I have even auctioned off home decor and it did great. So nothing is turned away, every dime makes a difference! The silent auction is a big hit each year and often brings in a good portion of the funds raised. Thank you all for checking and I greatly appreciate any donation!

    It looks like this is turning into two or three boxes! Don't worry I will have all the paperwork worked out for you when I send them!

    Default wow!

    Wow that is incredible Horsefaerie! I am thrilled that 2 or 3 boxes will be on the way! This is by far the worst year yet for donations and it has had me in panick mode but this gives me hope. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

    Thank you Horsefaerie! It really has been quite depressing this year but just your faith gives me hope! You have been incredible and I so appreciate how much you are doing! I did recieve the box saturday and it was incredible. May be putting in some bids myself.

    Another one goes out today. Good Lord willing and the creek don't rise. THere will be at least one more if not two more as not everyone has completed their donations. Hang in there!

    OK, there will be at least two more boxes. The nicest things are coming in. It is just arranging them in the box so that the fragile items hopefully will not get broken!

    I don't like mailing fragile things in heavy boxes (like the last one)!

    Smile!

    Default Bump

    Please excuse this bump but I am horribly behind in donations this year. Please know that anything is appreciated from riding wear to tack to decorative items. You name it, it is all greatly appreciated! And a special thank you to Horsefaerie for all of her incredible work in rounding up donations for this great cause!

    Ok, box # four went in the mail today! There will be a box number five but I am not sure when! I have a few things and am expecting more.

    So bumpily bump!

    Awesome! THis is such a tough year for everyone! It has hit charities and fundraisers hard the last few years. With hay and feed prices going through the roof and horses not selling, fewer lessons and all it is hard.

    THis is such a great cause and Tressa works so hard!

    I must admit I am blown away by the local tack shops, barns and stables with the enthusiasm this year!

    Horsefaerie you blow me away! You are an angel sent from heaven!

    I did recieve a donation in the mail a couple of days ago and can't figure out who to thank. There were some nice blankets, bell boots and sport boots, etc. I would love to give appreciation where appreciation is due! However if you wish to remain annonymous just know the donation is so very appreciated!

    You should have gotten the two boxes by now. One would have weighed about 22 pounds and the other about 12? Both should be there. Let me know if they came in.

    At least one more before the first I think. I have a few things but I am picking up some more this week.

    A nice morning bump for a great cause.

    I hope I have the time to get the last box out before that storm hits. Fingers crossed it dissipates and goes back to sea.

    Horsefaerie, are you near the storm's track? Be careful! Bringing my goodies to equuslover tonight! (we live nearby).

    I may not have electricity here shortly. I don't own a smart phone so that may mean no internet access. I did not get the last box off. Doubt that I will until after the storm.

    Paradox, I hope EL got many lovely things for the auction. I placed a notice with our local DCTA but I have not yet received any donations, possibly due to the storm.

    I did pick up another two donations from our local western Tack store! Folsom LA is tiny but generous!

    I'll try to be in touch!
