News and Notes:

Help find Neigh Savers a home: Neigh Savers, California’s largest Thoroughbred rescue, has placed over 400 OTTBs in new homes since 2007… all without having a centralized location. Now, Neigh Savers is looking for a home of its own in order to exponentially increase the number of horses it saves. Any property owner looking to sell, lease or share property is encouraged to contact Neigh Savers. A minimum of 5 acres with covered barn, arena, pasture and residence would be required. If you have a property that you think might be a great fit, or would like to be a founding donor to our future facility, contact Nicole Schwartz at 818.456.9184 or [email protected][Neigh Savers: Racing Home]

Check out these quick, easy, and cheap blanket repair solutions to help keep your blankets in serviceable condition despite their daily abuse from the weather and the wearers. [Horse Channel]
