Smarty Sides, Tucker, Dirty During, Babylon, Smart As Lil, and Pimento are six rescue horses that will perform at Pure Thoughts Horse Rescue in Loxahatchee, Florida at the Fete Cheval on Friday, March 11, 2011, in Wellington, Florida, presented by Foundation Farm.
"We are so pleased that Pure Thoughts, an all volunteer 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to saving the lives of horses, yearlings and foals, bound for slaughter and victims of starvation, neglect and abuse, is donating the horses for this year's event. It is a wonderful opportunity to directly tie together our mission with the event that we are sponsoring, and an opportunity for our guests to see first hand that despite neglect and abuse, these horses can continue to have useful lives," said Lynn Coakley, President of The EQUUS Foundation. Pure Thoughts is one of the 60 charities that received grants from The EQUUS Foundation in 2010.
