Fund Raising Auction February 6th- February 8th Online!

So many exciting things happened in the first month of 2012. Some events were very sad, like the passing of band stallion Davy Greasewood from Sand Wash Basin HMA. Some were very good, like the birth of Branson's Little Davy G a.k.a. Branson who surprised everyone at 4.30 am on January 31st at Alder Hill Farm Rescue. There was also the theft of a huge supply of hay from the Alder Hill Farm Rescue in January. Its devastating because of the slow donations due to the economy and because of the hay shortage in most states is driving the price up.

So I decided to hold an on line auction on my Facebook page I will donate 100% of the money raised from the painting of  Little Branson's first Day and 50% of the final price of 9 other items toward the purchase of Hay and any thing else that Alder Hill Farm.  I would like to donate $200 plus to the effort. Please help me help Alder Hill Farm to replace this hay. We still have a good two and ahalf months before the grass comes in. So they need to replace it quickly.

You can bid in two ways:
1) Directly on the face book page in the comment section under the item you want to bid on by going to:
