Good morning everyone,

Just thought I would update you guys on some information I found out this weekend. The carriage horses and mules from New Orleans went thru a very trying ordeal - the whole story can be read at www.thehorse.com, just to let you know of the 22 they evacuated 2 did not make it but thanks to the efforts of the barn staff the rest are now safe. There is a very moving story about a quarter horse that swam for 2 hours to get one of these barn managers to safety to receive needed medical care. I have also been in contact with Officer Debbie Weaver of the New Orleans Mounted Police - they were able to evacuate all 29 horses of the squad prior to the storm. They are now being housed in the arena at the Washington Parish Fairground in Louisiana. While the horses have enough supplies for the next month their human riders have suffered significant personal losses. They are asking for donations for the displaced police officers as well. If you would like to make a monetary contribution to the New Orleans Mounted Police you can send checks or money orders made out to: NOPD Mounted Competition Disaster Fund c/o Officer Debbie Weaver 47097 Hwy 1072, Franklinton, LA 70438 indicate on the bottom left of the check if you want it given to the horses or the officers. I have Officer Weavers telephone number as well if you wish to assist in other ways. E-mail me if you want it.

Thanks,
