H.E.R.O. welcomes a second  foal – seeks public input on name

The best things come in twos, especially for the folks who volunteer with H.E.R.O., the Horse Education and Rescue Organization. This week, for the second time in two months, one of H.E.R.O.’s rescue horses has become a proud parent. This time it’s “Speckles,” who just gave birth to a healthy colt.

“I’m happy to report that both mother and son are doing well,” said Deb Finney, president of H.E.R.O. “But to make sure they remain healthy, we need for the community to support us, either through the donation of cash or supplies.”

Toward that end, H.E.R.O. is inviting the public to name the colt and, at the same time, help raise much needed funds to support its rescue and rehab mission.

“The first step is to visit our website, look at this precious little foal, and think of the cutest and most appropriate name for him,” said Finney. “Then, just register your suggestion, along with a $5 entry fee.”

Entry fees and donations can be made through PayPal, or you can send a check.

“We encourage everyone to enter as many names as you want, because the registration fees will help us continue rescuing and caring for injured, abused, and neglected equines.”

On August 1, H.E.R.O. will present a live, Facebook feed with a special guest of honor to draw the winning name. The winner will receive a custom Christmas ornament, personalized with their winning name for our new colt. The public will be able to purchase the decorative ornaments in time for the holidays.
