"Moneigh" to be Raffled at Lone Star Park
Remember Me Racehorse Rescue and Lone Star Park are raffling a "Moneigh" with 100% of the proceeds going towards the rehabilitation and retraining of retired racehorses. Raffle tickets may be purchased early for $1 each or you can buy them in person on Kentucky Derby Day at Lone Star Park.
For those of you not familiar with a "Moneigh" it is an original work of abstract art, created by a horse using a brush, muzzle, chin, whiskers, tail, and or hoof. The name is derived from the name of a famous artist and the sound a horse makes. The word "Moneigh" is a registered trademark of ReRun, Inc., a Thoroughbred horse charity.
The "Moneigh" we are offering was painted by FRANCONIA, a retired thoroughbred mare. The painting comes framed with a certificate of authenticity and pictures of FRANCONIA painting her masterpiece.
Remember Me Racehorse Rescue is operated by Dallas and Donna Keen in Burleson, Texas. RMR retrained and placed 36 retired racehorses in new homes last year. This year the need for donations and fundraising is greater than ever. The Keens have plans to begin retraining the retired racehorses to become mounted patrol horses and will place them free of charge to police and sheriff departments all over the United States. With your help and support of Remember Me Rescue we can not only provide these horses with the retraining they need to live productive lives after racing but become a helpful part of the safety provided by the brave men and women who need quality horses in our mounted patrol divisions.
Remember Me Rescue is building a barn, arena, and mounted patrol certified training course. Any donations towards the police project are tax deductible as RMR is a 501(c)3 non profit.
For more information contact Donna Keen at 817-689-1214 or go to www.teamkeen.com to see the horses currently available in the adoption program.
