EPONA Horse Rescue
Ever since I was a little girl I've been a horse lover. I was born around horses, grew up on horses, and I still own horses. They truly are one of the most magnificent animals to gallop across our planet. But unfortunately, horses are not immune to the abuse and neglect some people choose to inflict upon them. However, there is hope. Earlier this year I became acquainted with Lin Beaune of EPONA Horse Rescue. Lin is truly making a difference to save the lives of many, many horses. Like many rescue organizations, Lin's survives mainly on adoptions, and of course, donations. I'm proud my publisher, Black Velvet Seductions, has been helping with the cause.
Right now Epona is holding a raffle as another means to raise funds. If you are a horse lover and are in the market for a nice saddle, please consider buying a ticket! First prize is your choice of a 15" Circle Y Western saddle or an Australian Snowy River Outback saddle. These saddles were donated by a generous woman from North Carolina and are in excellent condition. Saddles can be seen at www.eponahorserescue.com. Tickets are $5 each and can be ordered on line by emailing Epona Horse Rescue at firstname.lastname@example.org and paying through Pay Pal. Or you can write to Epona and mail your order to :

They are also holding a Open House Buffet on Saturday, November 3, 6-10 PM at the Brewers Coffee House in Minden, NE. Tickets for the buffet are $10.00 per person. The raffle drawing for the saddles will be held that evening. You need not be present to win. Thanks for listening!
