HORSE slates party for Fiona
HORSE of Connecticut in Washington will hold a 12th birthday celebration for Fiona, one of the organization’s horses, March 30 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. A rain date of March 31 is planned.
Fiona is a registered thoroughbred mare that was rescued as a starvation case in 2013. Due to complications from her former neglect, Fiona can no longer be ridden. She is available for a sponsor.
Gus, a registered thoroughbred gelding, will also be present and celebrate his eighth birthday.
Gift suggestions include horse cookies, carrots, apples and granola bars. Contributions toward her spring shots ($175), monthly medications ($180) or her wardrobe (shoes $150 or blanket $125) are also welcome.
Tours of the farm will be offered at noon and a tack sale will run from 10 a.m. to noon at the 43 Wilbur Road farm.
