WHEN: Sunday, April 23, 1-4 p.m.
WHERE: Metzger’s Country Store, 6791 Shelbyville Road, Simpsonville KY 40067
WHY: To help Kentucky Humane Society horses
More info: Bring the family out on Sunday, April 23, 1-4 p.m. to Metzger’s Country Store to meet orphaned foal Dwight and miniature horse Lil’ Sebastian. Learn about the Kentucky Humane Society’s Equine C.A.R.E. (connect, assist, rescue and educate) program as well as KHS Working Cats, who are looking for “working” homes in barns and farms.
While you’re at Metzger’s, you can purchase “wish list” items for KHS horses, such as mare’s match milk replacer for orphaned foals, leather foal halters and salt blocks. Cash donations are also gratefully accepted.
KHS will be selling “I Met Lil’ Sebastian” T-shirts as well as other KHS merchandise, with proceeds benefiting the animals at KHS. The mini horse, who was rescued by KHS, is a look-alike for Li’l Sebastian, a beloved character in the NBC show “Parks and Recreation.”
