I've Already Got My Christmas Presents

And they're all new homes for the lovely Finger Lakes Finest.  Here are some who have recently gone off to new homes.
Magic Card Trick went off to Georgia, where his new owner is head over heels for him
Kenny Run will stay in Western New York State, and become a young girl's eventing horse.
Dance for Fashion headed for South Carolina earlier this week.  She has already impressed her new owner with her "managing" ways, bossing all of the bigger horses around.
Red Streak represents one of the dangers of being one of our volunteers.  He ended going home with a volunteer, and has settled right in.
Keen Isabella went to Texas, where she will be a broodmare, and be bred to a very fine stallion by the name of Sea Accounts next year.
Tally Me Out also went South, where she is very much loved by her new owner, whose blog I follow.
I'm Electric will be a polo pony
And Jade's Knight, Collected Debt and Out for Fame all headed out this past week for their new homes, as well.


So far, by a very rough count, we have placed about 110 horses this year.  And, it isn't over yet.  It's a good feeling knowing that we have helped these trainers/owners, who are very concerned about finding their horses good new homes, in their search.  Not to mention all of the lovely creatures who will go on to new careers.  

This year, we had horses go as far as California, and as near as a couple of miles down the street.  But, wherever they go, the Finger Lakes Finest are bound to be loved and admired.

KENNY RUN


OMG what a fine neck!!!

Louise I love you and all you do for these grand animals

Louise said...

Kenny Run was the one who brought me closest this year to breaking my resolve not to have any more horses. Not only is he drop dead gorgeous, but his temperament is wonderful.

Thank you so much, Upupaepops. I love doing this and still, after all these years, look forward to going down to the track on Saturdays.

Hi Louise.....what a beautiful post....we are thrilled these beautiful horses had you on their side to find them good homes.
Each of them are gorgeous in their own way we lean a tad toward Dance for Fashion...sounds like a nice Diva name!!! She is a beauty and she is gray.
Thank you for your kind comments as always.
Hugs Madi and Mom and we know you rest well each night knowing all have homes.

foundationmare said...

Well, you know how I feel! It's appropriate that our "push" happens this time of year because it is my Christmas present too! Isobelle is a wise goat: she knows how hard you work and I thank you too, many, many times over.

Terry said...

Well done, Louise! You are a hero indeed. I'm sure they are all great horses, but Kenny Run is the one for me! Drool.

Louise said...

Thanks guys, but, gosh, I didn't post this to get praise, you know. foundationmare and Isobelle's Lady worked just as hard as I did, to find these horses new homes. It just makes me happy to think of them all safe and sound in new homes.

Tammy said...

Kudos to all of you who work so hard to give these beautiful horses a second chance. It's a wonderful thing you are doing!

This makes me love and admire you and your fellow volunteers. What a wonderful job you are doing, helping these beautiful animals get the good homes they deserve.--Inger

You and the volunteers have the Christmas spirit year round. I enjoy your updates. Just curious, on average, how much does it cost to adopt a racehorse?

Judith said...

Well done, Louise. What beautiful animals.

Louise, I am delighted to read of your success. What a joy to learn that these animals will have new homes for the new year. Congrats to you and your fellow volunteers.
