2015 Fundraiser: Foal Raffle
Would you pay $3 for a registered Suffolk Punch foal? Well, okay, let’s rephrase that… Would you pay $3 for a chance to win a registered Suffolk Punch foal?
Get your tickets now! DAPNet’s 2015 fundraiser is in full swing and we invite you to join us.
John Hammond and North Star Livery are donating a 2015 foal for the raffle, which will be held at the Draft Animal-Power Field Days in September.
Once the foal is weaned it will go to Neal & Rebekah Perry for a few weeks of handling and baby training, then it will be at the Field Days to meet it’s new owner! The winner need not be present to win, but we hope you will be there to meet the foal!
