On Saturday, May 4 our Unit held a Tack Sale at the SoCal Equine Hospital in Norco. Our members donated several hundred items and those helping with the sale laid out a very impressive display. The SoCal Equine Hospital was having an Open House the same day and took very good care of us. We had buyers walking in before we were set up at 8 AM and we stuck it out until 2 PM. It was also kind of a sad day as this was the last event we could enjoy with Randy and Melanie as they are moving to Colorado. We wish them happiness in their new home.We are very happy with the amount we took in and hope to do another sale in the future, so if you find tack you are not using keep us in mind. We are very grateful for the volunteers who showed up to help and all who donated useful items. And we want to express a special "Thank You" to Dr Paul Wan and Erica for their generosity and hospitality.
