BRAS For Horses featuring recycled horse products, www.brasforhorses.com -BRAS stands for Braiding to Raise Awareness & Support for Horse Rescue – our primary focus to is raise money to send rescue horses to professional trainers so that the rescues will have a greater chance of being adopted by their forever boy or girl. The items we make and sell have been terrific hits wherever we go regardless of whether or not a person is a horse owner! It is very exciting to know what an impact we are having on the lives of horses and their owners! Our items, like our rescue horses, are recycled goods…interesting way to look at a horse but that’s what a rescue horse is a recycled horse! We have feed bags turned into totes; hair turned into necklaces, bracelets, zipper pulls, book marks, ear rings and whatever else we can come up with!
Also, the Clydesdales will be coming from A Chance in the Country. http://achanceinthecountry.org/ The work Robin and her team of humans and horses accomplishes is nothing short of heartwarming and amazing! We’ll have her book, “Oh No Not the Doctor!” available at our table to help her continue her work with horses and children.
