    Default Donate to Leg-Up Equestrian Assistance- help Marin Humane Society

    I am starting a separate thread so that this does not get lost in the original Jill Burnell/Gray Fox Farm thread. I have to say that I have been blown away with how our breeding community has come together to not only help fellow breeders who were wronged, but to help make sure there is funding for Marin County Humane Society, who in less than a couple of months time, got the ball rolling to help these horses. Something that the previous county wouldn't or couldn't do. Right now we are compiling a list of breedings, items and services that can be donated and auctioned off.

    Jos is in the process of setting up an auction page so that others can donate whatever they have available or wish to donate. We have structured the page to say that the funds will be used for care, seizure, legal fees, etc. I know that it can sometimes be difficult to earmark funds specifically for some organizations. If it can go to legal, all the better. But if not, just being able to help out the horses and get things moving in the right direction, it's all good. And besides...if it all falls to pieces, there are certainly other causes that can be supported through Leg-Up, yes? . There's always a place or a person who will need help...wish it weren't the case, but unfortunately, life isn't always easy.

    If you are a stallion owner who is interested in donating a breeding to your stallion to the Leg-Up Equestrian Assistance to be auction off, those funds will then be earmarked for Marin County and the horses of Gray Fox Farm.
    We welcome donations from all breeds too

    The auction won't be limited to just stallion services. Someone have a dose or two of frozen semen they want to donate? They can do that too. Just make sure you make it clear who is responsible for the shipping etc.

    Do you have an item or services you are willing to donate. We would be happy to include that as well.

    We have donated our services to build a website for the auction and other items and services are quickly coming in.
    Get creative and email us with your suggestion.

    Bump - please donate - cash and/or auction items (some of the Stallion Services auctions closing soon, others over the next few days).

    Marin Humane Society has gone to bat for these horses - and won a first step in court this week (it is expected to be a long road). A small army of SOs and volunteers have put together this amazing fund raising effort. Please support the legal and care costs needed to protect these horses. Many are mares in foal.

    If you want to make a cash donation, I found the process super easy.

    As I have noted in other threads, we deliberately staggered the auctions so that no two items closed at the exact same time. And, so that no one has to be up in the middle of the night, the last item each day will close BEFORE midnight EST !

    So, here is a list of items that are closing this evening! Let's see if we can make this happen in a BIG way! With 3 of the 4 horses seized at UC Davis, you KNOW that bill is NOT going to be cheap. Let's make sure that there is sufficient funds to make sure they don't suffer for the stupidity of anyone involved.


    Leg-Up Auction to Benefit the Marin Humane Society - items closing Thursday Jan 10 2013

    Please note that although the closing times are indicate below, an item receiving a bid remains open for an additional 5 minutes to allow further bids. The bidding will actually close 5 minutes after the last bid is made.

    Not to be an enabler or anything ...but these are foals by our pony stallions and out of Warmblood & Thoroughbred mares!

    The first bay is out of a TB dam. The grey is out of a Hanoverian dam. The second bay is out of a Hungarian WB dam. The chestnut is out of a TB mare amd the last bay is also out of a TB mare.

    Such amazing stallions. And I agree, the pony stallions are adorable.

    It is a good thing I do not have a broodmare or I would be in lots of trouble.

    What an amazing opportunity for those who do breed though. Great stallions and helping a good cause.

    Seriously - if I still had one of my pony mares I bred, or if little old Angel wasn't in her 40's at this point I'd be bidding on one of them!

    Let me enable you

    I have a welsh pony by him who also was used for a stud for several years -- my pony is now gelded but I have a welsh mare and partbred welsh gelding by my guy which would make them the grandkids of Telynau Bronze Statue.

    This is the FB link to my gelding by Telynau Bronze Statue: http://www.facebook.com/Nefeda#!/med...7545710&type=3 He is 13 hh

    This is the FB link to my welsh mare by my guy which would make her Telynau Bronze Statue's granddaughter http://www.facebook.com/Nefeda#!/med...7545710&type=3 She is 12.1 hh

    My coming 3 year old partbred (again Telynau Bronze Statue grandkid) is going to stay a large. Dam was a quarter horse.

    All move extremely well, have great temperaments. Great kids ponies. In fact if I had a pony mare to breed other than his granddaughter I would be bidding against you.

    He should keep the size down on non-pony mares

    Can I ask a question to all the SO's donating - is it ok for a mare owner to place a bid if they're only looking to breed in 2014 and not in 2013? Is there an "expiry" on these auction-won breedings?

    Thanks!

    Before you bid, you should contact the Stallion Owner directly. For our own stallion, I stipulated that the contract is good for 2 years. I saw some stallions on there that had contracts good for 3 years, etc. But it's probably best to contact them and ask, to make sure!

    Thanks!
    The contracts on our stallions (Avalon Equine) are for three years. So, you have a few years to use them. But as Daventry said - contact the stallion owner to be sure.

    Okay, here's the link to the "items" that are ending tonight! BID BID BID !

    Good luck everyone!

    The contract for my stallion is good for 2 years and I'm very easy going I've always honored contracts and as long as the mare owner keeps me in the loop I'm easy to work with.
