Lookey what came in the little brown truck today!
My copy of the HORSES AND HOPE 2013 calendar!
Gina from Hoofprints sent this with a lovely card (she is the publisher).
WHY DO I CARE ABOUT A CALENDAR?
OMG. This calendar is filled with gorgeous photos and wonderful Rescue stories.
What could be better?!!
You all know that I love a great Rescue story…
Every Single Horse in this calendar (photographed beautifully) was on a feedlot – destined for the horrible ride to a horrible demise.
Each was saved through the wonderful work of a network of people who brave the Camelot feedlot in New Jersey to photograph and catalog these horses (I couldn’t do that…) – then blast the images over the Internet. By doing so, they have already saved hundreds of horses.
And they will never stop.
This calendar is a way for them to continue their good work. The proceeds from the calendar sales goes to ONE HORSE AT A TIME, a non-profit determined to make a difference ‘one horse at a time’ . Last year, the calendar sales brought in over $40,000 for the Rescue, $19.95 at a time (5 Starbucks lattes)! Every little bit helps.
Buy them for yourself or … maybe gift them this holiday season! The photos by Sarah K. Andrew are fabulous!! The stories even better.
FOR EXAMPLE… here is one of the stories!
Mimi is one of the many horses featured in my 2013 Horses and Hope calendar. With the help of Gina Keesling of HoofPrints, my 2012 debut calendar contained over 100 photos of auction horses. Thanks to the support of horse lovers all over, it raised nearly $40,000 for One Horse At A Time, helping hundreds of horses in need directly, and untold others indirectly through increased public awareness. Now that we have one calendar’s worth of experience to draw upon, the 2013 version promises to be even more exciting, even more creative, and as always, inspirational and positive.
GIVING IN THIS WAY, gets you a lovely calendar and a gold star for supporting the efforts of these ladies who give their time, creativity, and love to save horses!

What a wonderful Mimi story…brought tears to my eyes on a stressful, dank day. Good for a sweet good horse and the humans that believed in her.
Thank you so much for the nice review! I’m so glad you like the calendar, and I hope you enjoy it year round.
I love happy stories like this! Mimi is one lucky horse, but I know that Bev feels like the lucky one. I would recommend adopting a horse to save a life. I am looking at Red Bucket Equine Rescue here in Chino Hills. They actually match the horses to the person which is awesome and you can take your time to make sure. I think they know they have been saved. Thank you to all the rescues out there and the volunteers that help them. Bless you all!
What rescue is all about…..those happy endings!!
