News From The “Sunshine State AMBA”:

During our first year of operation our Chapter acquired a free lease on a 5 acre tract where we intend to house rescued mustangs and burros. It is our hope that we can adopt them to what will become “forever homes”.

January 2013 our Chapter attended the Marrianna, FL, BLM adoption. The highlight of our participation was that we (our Board and Members) were able to bring home 6 mustangs and 2 burros.

Congratulations to our Secretary, Jennie Sloan who was recently appointed by The Mustang Heritage Foundation as a TIP trainer. Jennie has also opened a new training facility where our sanctuary mustangs will receive rehab and additional training, thereby making them more adoptable.

On April 6, 2013 our Chapter will celebrate its first anniversary. The celebration activities shall consist of a fund raiser for the sanctuary mustangs, demos, raffles, entertainment, guest speakers from BLM, a mustang adoption, and last but not least — plenty of good food. Ya’ll come!
