Update: November 23rd

Hello all!
We continue to make progress with adoptions as we wind down our training season! Walinsky shipped out last week to his new home in Paris, Ky. We have now found foster placements for Golden Golden ('Nemo') and Gentle Bandit; Nemo will be going home with Luann, one of our dedicated volunteers, and Bandit is going to stay with our very own communications intern, Sarah! Both Luann and Sarah will get to know them over the winter and consider adopting them before we re-open in March.
That said, we are still looking for homes for Code Forty, Fly Lite, He's A Hoot, Invincible Vince, Sweet Immersion and Herr Heinz. Code Forty and Fly Lite are sweet, hunter-type mares who are both sound and ready to go into training for the show ring. He's A Hoot, Sweet Immersion and Herr Heinz are all young and sound, great for any discipline; He's A Hoot has spectacular movement and would be good at dressage but has the athleticism to make an eventer as well. Sweet Immersion ("Merv") has a very event-type build but could also make a jumper/field hunter. Heinz is ready for anything, very sweet and relaxed, sound to jump in any context. Vince has had some dressage training and is sound for pleasure riding on the flat or trails.
The interns and I took a field trip to the Kentucky Derby Museum in Louisville this past weekend--it was a good chance to teach them about the sport our horses are coming out of, as well as the life cycle of a racehorse. Look for Sarah's article about our trip on the News and Events section of www.thoroughbredadoption.com !
We are all preparing for the Secretariat Center's open house on December 6th. Hannah, Leah and Sarah will be doing a presentation on the internship program and 90-day re-schooling program (R), and there will be refreshments so come and see what we're all about! It's a chance for us to thank our sponsors, past and present and inform new people about our mission and plans for next year. All are welcome, we are located within the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. The hours for the open house will be 1-3.
That's all for now!
