BUT! In the mean time...
THIS WEEK AND WEEKEND horse fans and cowboys/girls can immerse themselves in equine culture in Redmond at the Mustangs to the Rescue fundraiser. The area nonprofit takes in abandoned horses, often incorrectly labeled as "wild," cares for them and grooms them for permanent adoption. But, such care requires time and money. Hence the fundraiser! Throughout this week and into the weekend, Mustangs to the Rescue volunteers are offering clinics, demonstrations, barbeques and more to showcase the beautiful horses while (hopefully) raising money to support the group's efforts. See a full list of events on their Facebook page. If interested, please RSVP by Friday: 541-350-0799.
All events are at Sky Hawk Ranch in Redmond, south of Smith Park State Park.
