Late last week (July 29,2011) Critteraid’s Project Equus received an unexpected gift when a family from Denmark, that was visiting the Okanagan, stopped into Jardin Estate Jewelry and Antiques in Okanagan Falls to ask if Project Equus would be able to use three almost brand new bicycles!
Yun Mi Antorini was in the Okanagan with her two girls for approximately two weeks, and they had purchased the bikes to get around and enjoy our beautiful area. Since they could not take the bikes back with them, and had learned about Project Equus and the work we are doing to protect the wild horses of British Columbia, the family wanted to see if we could make use of their bicycles.
Of course we gratefully accepted the Antorini’s offer. We plan to hold a raffle later this fall, putting all proceeds towards the care and training of the wild horses in our possession.
Project Equus currently has five horses in our care looking for forever homes, including a baby who was born on May 5th and another foal expected in mid-August. Project Equus is also looking for foster homes and volunteers. If you would like to learn more about Project Equus and how you could help the horses please call Theresa Nolet at 250-497-6733 or email firstname.lastname@example.org/critteraid.
