The folks at Frog Pond Draft Rescue are totally on the mark when it comes to organizing and inspiring people to step up. Their latest idea is, in the words of one of their Facebook fans, a real “breath taker”.
Apparently they had a much loved horse who had a health condition that ultimately caused them to have to have him euthanized. They saved his mane and tail and now an artist has turned those precious physical bits into tangible memories of a beloved horse named Lotto.
What Their Fans Think
“These are very beautiful and a sweet memorial.”
Ohhhh my I am so sorry to hear about Lotto. He seemed to be doing so well. Thank you for taking such great care of the animals you come into contact with! You are truly an angel of mercy! I am sure that Lotto was happy right up to the end.These are beautiful. I hope it’s a fantastic success as a fundraiser!What a beautiful way to remember such a beautiful horse, he will continue to bring joy to those around him even in death. Hope he and Titan are running and playing through the lush meadows @ the Rainbow Bridge ♥
If you have any left I would like 3 or 2 or 1 but 3 if you can please these will go to friends and family

From The folks at Frog Pond: We are only doing 48 of these so they are limited edition. We will send them with a certificate of authenticity and a numbered. They will be selling for $50 each. We also hope to do bracelets for $100. Those will be posted later. I have to get these and the sponsorship items done first…and Amanda has a life. LOL I will post them as a sale item with a countdown so people will know when they are sold out.
