Agree, there are many fundraisers which people don't know exist. There is a new website which has many equine categories. They collect rescue events and include them on their website here: http://equineinfoexchange.com/index.php ... ies/events and on their Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/equineinfoex

You can email them at info@equineinfoexchange.com and they can help.

Take Charge Lady isn't the dam of 'Brandi...she's her granddam, with TCB being out of 'Lady's daughter, Charming. :roll:
I wonder who made that goof? It misrepresents the provenance of that halter, which might bother the person bidding on it.

I think that's a common misconception, I've seen Blood-Horse make that same mistake. I sent an email to Sylvia, hopefully they'll correct it when they make the eBay postings later today (the auctions aren't live yet).
