Update: May 9th

Hello all!
So many updates!
First of all, our halter auction closed with a grand total of $3400! We truly appreciate the generosity of our bidders. Holy Bull's halter brought the most money at $517 and each exceeded their minimum bids. We are thrilled with the results and are excited to repeat the event next spring.
We had a table at the Rolex Three-Day Event again this year and met lots of great people. We had several interested in volunteering, and showed all of our horses to various potential adopters. We also sold lots of t-shirts and all of our used tack. What a great weekend!
We have had a flurry of adoptions in the last month also: Testament was adopted to a local dressage barn (after being here for only three weeks!), Hootie left for a new home in Pennsylvania, and Sweet Sweet finally seems to have found a foster home in a non-mounted therapy program in Colorado. Sam, a recent return has gone back to live with an old adopter as well...not a new home but certainly a good one. There are applications pending on Core Sample Dr. Hector, so my guess is they will be the next to go. Danzaway and Take The Balance are getting a lot of interest also. Danzaway is ready to go but Balance needs some more assessment before we will feel really comfortable sending him out. Still available are Invincible Vince, Dawn's Creek and Todd T. Shrupolini so check them out at www.secretariatcenter.org .
We're on the lookout for more young, sound horses to bring in and are hoping to work with some new local rescue agencies for off-track Thoroughbreds but are willing to accept horses into the TRF system from private owners. If you have a horse you feel is appropriate for re-training, call us at 859-246-3080.
Our interns have officially finished their spring semester and gave a great presentation for parents and professors alike. We had a really great group this semester and all of them learned a lot. I'm going to begin advertising for the fall internships in the next week. Anyone interested should drop an email to ncvoss2@yahoo.com .
We're still holding weekly demonstrations on Saturdays at noon for Horse Park visitors, so come hitch a ride to the Center after the Parade of Breeds at 11:15. We take visitors back in our truck at 11:45 from behind the Breeds Barn.
That's all for now, folks. Stay tuned for more updates!
