    Arthur and I have been following this thread… we have no direct interest in the topic, but I must say, we are awed by how amazing COTH can be, and most especially people like Kathy St. Martin. I’m an old Catholic gal… it occurred to me after reading this that her name should be St. Kathy Martin.

    Sorry it was my auto correct! It also constantly changes mare into made... awkward.

    I couldn't agree more! She keeps her halo hidden most of the time but it is definitely there!

    Okay, Okay. I have to step in. Do you have any idea the repercussions of this statement? There'll be no living with her after this.

    In all reality however, she and several others mentioned have been working tirelessly to help in any way they can. It's absolutely an amazing process to behold.

    I'm going to ask the COTH moderators if they'd consider making the Leg Up Auction and the Daventry link to burned owners as a "sticky" or "announcement".

    I can understand why they may not do so as this is an "alleged" abuse and fraud case. But it's a great auction for a very worthy cause.

    I'm sure they are watching all of this with bated breath, just like we are.

    Worth a try to raise more $$.

    <lol>..My name is the only way I "could" attain Sainthood. Anyone that knows me, knows I swear like a sailor, would drink like a fish if I could, drive too fast, would prolly have a cigarette dangling form my lips if I wasn't aware of just how bad smoking is for ya, and am wearing my body out through too much clumsy physical abuse. If I HAD a halo, I'd probably use it to do the ring toss at Jos <ROTFL>. That would be a game I could get into! Would probably invite friends over to join in the fun!

    But I do have a keen sense of what is right and wrong - thanks to a truly incredible father who taught by example - and realize that a kind word and a helping hand go a long way and often, don't cost anything to offer. And if you don't believe me, try saying something kind to a total stranger - it can be an amazing experience .

    I spoke up several years ago and was slammed by many on these Boards. Funny that many of the people speaking up about her now are the people that slammed me way back!

    I'm so happy to report that I was able to bid on one of the stallions! So proud of these stallion owners, as well as everyone who has donated either money or a service or an item to the auction. This work on behalf of the GFF horses is really, really impressive and very kind.

    It looks like deadlines vary...from about 1/10 to 1/17 or so. It's on the actual bid page, here is the stallion bid page:

    Kudos to all the SOs and others who are making this happen.

    Donating was simple! Kudos to web designer for making the cash donation process a breeze.

    I think most of the usage times will be within 2 years... Verify with the owners before bidding!

    I have a serious question though... Are we 100% certain the rest of the horses are going to be (or have been) seized? What happens if they aren't? To the auction money I mean? It is entirely possible that may happen, no matter how much we don't want it to, you know? And what if they don't seize all of them? I'm not at all questioning the helping, just asking if there is a backup plan in place in the event things don't go as we'd like...
    Not all who wander are lost.

    I think there was mention of the money also going towards legal fees?
