Equine Rescue Calendar Raises Funds for Horses in Need
RED BANK, NJ- The popular calendar Horses and Hope: Faces of Rescue will raise funds again this year with a 2013 calendar benefiting One Horse At A Time, an equine advocacy group that awards grants to equine rescues and individuals in need in the equine industry.
Award-winning equine photographer Sarah K. Andrew and designer Gina Keesling of Hoofprints.com will again collaborate on the collection of over 100 photos of horses at equine rescues, in auction houses, and in their adoptive homes. In 2012, Horses and Hope: My Year at the Auction raised over $40,000 for One Horse At A Time, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization based in Nicholasville, Kentucky.
With the funds received from the 2012 calendar, One Horse At A Time, Inc. (OHAAT) awarded gelding and emergency medical grants, hosted gelding clinics, and distributed emergency feed to more than 300 horses.
"Those of us who have these calendars know how special they are." said OHAAT co-founder Penny Austin, "Not only are they a work of art, they are an incredible teaching tool, but most of all, they are a resounding testament to the power of each one of us doing just one thing - and how each of our 'just one thing' combined with everyone else's has the power to move mountains."
Red Bank resident Sarah Andrew took the calendar's photos in Cranbury, New Jersey at Camelot Auction, as well as at equine rescues in Connecticut, Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. Since January 2010, Andrew has worked with a network of volunteers and photographed over 3,500 horses who needed homes or were are at risk of entering the slaughter pipeline.
Gina Keesling of Alexandria, Indiana designs and publishes the calendars. Founded in 1986, HoofPrints.com offers farrier, equine, and canine art and products.
The 2013 Horses and Hope: Faces of Rescue calendar costs $19.95 and is now available at http://www.hoofprints.com/ska-a.html 100% of the proceeds are donated to OHAAT.
