DeGraff Stables Charity Program January Selection!

Join DeGraff Stables, Inc. in support of our selected charity for January 2011!  We have chosen the Black Stallion Literacy Foundation for January's donation, as this non-profit organization we thought... what better way to grow our equine horse business for future generations than to help children learn to read and at the same time... to love horses?  We realize that mare owners have many fantastic choices when it comes to selecting a pleasure horse stallion for crossing on their mare. If your plans include one of the stallions from our extra-ordinary line-up of champion stallions, for 2011 and you are successful in obtaining an available discounted futurity/donated breeding to one of them, DeGraff Stables, Inc. will donate half of your booking fee to The Black Stallion Literacy Foundation for those bookings made in January!   You will not only be supporting the futurity of your choice and the resulting offspring, you will be providing enjoyment and education to youngsters!  More information may be found at: http://www.bslf-online.org/   Contact us today to participate in the DeGraff Stables, Inc. Charity Program!  Click Here! Printable Full Charity Program Details!  If you have questions, email me at  robin@whatiwork4.com or call my cell: 419.573.9098!  Thanks Robin!
