Over the years I have been involved with many horse rescue organizations, but the one constant has
been Bright Futures Farm. They have a reputation for being professional and they always have
the horse’s best interest at heart. Bright Futures Farm is top notch!
I have helped Bright Futures Farm by volunteering, fostering, and pulling horses out of dire situations.
This rescue makes a difference in the lives of so many horses, and places them in loving homes.
I am proud to be associated with such a fine organization!
I’ve fostered Bright Futures Farm's horses, and it was the best decision I’ve made. I speak highly of
this non-profit to anyone who will listen, and I would recommend it to anyone
looking for a way to make a difference with these beautiful creatures.
Bright Futures is always willing to step up in whatever way they can, keeping the best interest of the
horse in mind, always. They are totally transparent, forthright, and honest, and an asset to the
community they serve, as well as the animals that they help.
I was looking for a forever home for a retired draft horse and pony, and Bright Futures Farm helped
place both in a timely and very sympathetic manner. I receive updates on both horses, and I am very
pleased with the homes provided for both of them. It was a great experience.
Bright Futures Farm is dedicated to the horses, and they even send me pictures of the horse I’ve sponsored for 2 years. They let me know when they’re traveling to visit Sweet Lips and give me
updates on how he’s doing. Bright Futures Farm does a wonderful job!
PONY PLOP BINGO & OPEN HOUSE
PONY PLOP BINGO
Bright Futures Farm's 2nd Annual Pony Plop Bingo will happen at our Open House on Saturday September 16, 2017! This year, our pony will be Markie, a son of Secretariat! This year's event will be done through giving grid and once you pick a square you can upload a photo! It can be a photo of your best friend, your animal best friend, in memory of or in honor of someone or a special pet. It's very cool! We can't wait to see all of the photos you share!
Get one square for $10. Buy 5 squares and you'll get a Fast Market mug! Buy 10 squares and you'll get two Fast Market mugs and a box of 10 note cards with envelopes. Note cards will feature the Bright Futures Farm horses!
If Markie plops in your square - you win. If he plops on more than one square, the square with the most "plop" in it wins. Determined by three judges on site.
Our goal is $1690 this year. That will buy three months of Senior Feed, or 482 bales of hay (1/4 of what we need each year to feed the kids here). In addition to the winner getting $250, we will also give away mugs and note cards for specific donation amounts (see above). We need to see a photo in every square by September 16. You know Murphy's Law.... if all of the squares aren't "sold," you know he'll plop in one of the squares that isn't! We don't want that. We want a winner! So, please donate to get a square or two and share with friends and family. It's fun and a great way to help care for the kids here.

PATRICIA McQUEEN FUNDRAISER
Fast Market, Son of Secretariat
Get a Photo of Fast Market, Son of Secretariat, by Thoroughbred Researcher and Photographer, Patricia McQueen
Patricia McQueen has specialized in Thoroughbred photography since 1983 and her favorite subject and favorite Thoroughbred was Secretariat. Fast Market (Markie) is the 2nd oldest living son of Secretariat. He raced in Canada and the United States and is currently a permanent resident at Bright Futures Farm. He spends his days grazing, playing, rolling (his favorite thing to do), and hanging out with his best buddy, Brite Decision.
Patricia generously made the trip from Boston to our farm in Pennsylvania on December 21st to photograph and write about Markie, since he is one of Secretariat's stakes winners. What a privilege and honor it was to have her visit Bright Futures Farm! We quickly found that Patricia is one of the most–if not THE most–knowledgeable person on all things "Secretariat" as a sire.
Patricia has generously offered some of her prints of Markie for sale as a fundraiser for Bright Futures Farm.
Each of Patricia's photographs is offered as an 8x10 print and will be signed by Patricia. (They will not include
the watermark you see here on each image.) They are professionally printed and would be a lovely addition
to any racing memorabilia collection or for any horse lover!
There are nine prints available and each print will be created and shipped by Patricia.
All proceeds will benefit the rescue efforts at Bright Futures Farm, a trusted 501(c)(3) equine charity.
PRICE INCLUDES FREE SHIPPING TO US AND CANADA.
