ST. MARY-OF-THE-WOODS, Ind. (AP) - A one-of-a-kind horse adoption event attracted dozens of potential owners from several states.
At the stables of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College in western Indiana, 11 horses met prospective new owners at the Mari Hulman George Thoroughbred Adoption event Saturday.
The Tribune Star reports 10 thoroughbreds and one quarter horse ranging in age from 2 to 12 were available for adoption. All were owned by Mari Hulman George, the chairwoman of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Potential owners put in their bids for their horses Saturday.
Karen Lukkarila of Buchanan, Mich., and her 12-year-old daughter Kaitlyn repurpose horses and participate in show jumping. They had eyes on adopting two horses that were half brothers. Lukkarila says they plan to teach them to jump over the winter and begin showing them next summer.
