Winner #1: Polly Merrill
“This is my friend River Bend Lucille, better known as Lulu. She is 9.2 hands of gentle sweetness. She and her brother RB Percival were part of a science experiment gone very wrong. 150 of their relatives were being infected with EIA by a “veterinarian” who had the gallant idea he would cure the world of Equine Infectious Anemia. Thankfully, the Animal Rescue League of Boston was able to save 68 of these dear souls, and I have two of them! They came with body scales of (1), unimaginable internal parasite loads, lice, white line, rain rot.
“They are happy, healthy little monkeys now, but clearly Hamilton BioVet does not make suitable poultice wraps for horses whose legs are a mere 18 inches from floor to elbow! Lulu and Percy are very happy, spending their winter in Aiken. They are responsible for keeping their big OTTB friend, Matty, company. If Lulu wins the contest, she promised to give the poultices to Matty. They fit him better. We do LOVE these wraps. We used them after Millbrook in August, and Matty was extremely pleased with how his legs felt. Thanks to Hamilton Biovet for a fabulous invention and product! Merry Christmas!”
Winner #2: Brooke Durham
“Cozzy is a 2-year-old rescue mini who is aspiring to be a child’s event horse! He tolerated our sparkle garland, bows and even battery-operated Christmas lights quite well; we were impressed! Cozzy hails from Muddy Ruts Farm, owned and operated by Judi and Bill Wilson (parents of Abigail Wilson)!”
