Mindy Lowell's Transition Thoroughbred is trying to raise funds for hay and feed to get them through the Canadian (Ontario) winter.

This is the woman who rescued Press Exclusive and Wild Rhythm and many others.

Photographer Jay Moran usually has a list of photo portraits of TBs to sell on eBay, 75% of the price of which go to Our Mims. For the holidays, he's added a couple. (I bought one of Blind Luck.)

From December 8th to 15th, the Kentucky Equine Humane Center is having an eBay halter auction (they're calling it a Bridle Shower hehe) with the following halters:

Astrology, Intercontinental, Cigar, Storm Cat, Cowboy Cal, To Honor and Serve, Orb, Midnight Lute, Thunder Gulch, Serena’s Song, and Smart Strike


You can find them starting Dec 8 by entering KyEHC Thoroughbred Race in the search box on eBay. I'll try to remember to put the direct link up here once the auctions start.

Here's the link to the halter auction. The starting bids are a little high, but they have some nice ones that you don't see all the time.

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).
