The awareness part is exactly what Kristina is doing by walking across the US. She's finally getting some attention too, NY Times has an article about horse slaughter again, hope this time it's a good one.
I am thrilled that AA has won this huge honor and hope that you raise tons of dough so you can keep doing more good work, just don't let it go to your head, LOL. The horses and I love you for all you do for them. I hope from now on, every year a horse rescue makes the top ten and some attention is always given to the plight of the American horse. We must stop the bad guys for all animals, it's got to be known even more that animals are seriously mistreated in this country and there's no excuse. There must be laws enforced and prosecuted that prevent cruelty and protect animals from abusers.
