Washington Horse Rescue holding Valentine’s Day party

WASHINGTON – HORSE of Connecticut, now celebrating its 41st anniversary, will host a special Valentine’s Day celebration on February 12-13 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

From 10:00am there are hourly tours of the farm where you will meet many of our wonderful horses ranging from a 30 inch mini to an 18 hand warmblood.

The Tack Shop is open and stocked with everything from blankets to tack to grooming gear. There will be a wide variety of baked goods, stuffed animal gift bags, candies, handmade bracelets and necklaces, all ranging from $5 to $25. The farm also offers several sponsorship options, a program where you can groom and hand-walk the horse of your choice, from a visit for $25, 4 visits for $50, or an annual option for $300.

The farm’s main horse is Norman, a handsome quarter horse gelding who was just rescued from a kill pen in North Carolina. Norman is on emergency care due to his very emaciated condition. He will need dental, veterinary and farrier care once his condition stabilizes.

Remember that all donations raised go directly to the horses; from food and blankets to farrier, dental and vet costs. What better way to celebrate your sweetheart than by showing your love and support to a local horse rescue!

HORSE of Connecticut is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization funded solely by donations. To learn more visit horseofct.org or call 860-868-1960.
