It's that time again!
Last weekend a bunch of us gathered together for waffles & The Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover Adoption. Angi had a couple interested in adopting a horse for her to train, and we found out Shaula will be visiting from Italy and able to do the event with us (finally!)
Sometimes the bidding was fast & furious, but like last year many horses went into the pool as people held out hoping to get their favorite further down the list. Angi's favorite was #148. Shana & Adam were successful when bidding for him, but not before Angi had picked up TWO pool horses!
The thinking is that Shaula, will train #31 and Shana will train # 137.
Meanwhile back at the waffle bar... Jim had bid & adopted adopted # 89, and Mary had adopted #131 out of the pool.
Beth had called in and missed out on one of her favorites, and not wanting to miss out if she waited for her top pick called in to bid
Young Brittney called in and finally won a bid for #386, a really cute filly! After the dust had settled, over the weekend, and good horses were still in the pool... On monday Hailie picked up #178 & Robin Orfice got #179.
They then offered a new contest to help place the remaining horses. They will not be pre adopted, there will be an adoption auction in Texas. Meanwhile folks have until April 11th to apply to train a gelding or a yearling for a 10 obstacle trail course. Trainers will earn $1 a point & 50% of the adoption fee.
Our friends Kate & Ingrid have applied... which brings our Antelope Valley Team to 11 horses!!
