Unconfirmed Marsh Tacky gelding in danger of being shipped to Slaughterhouse.

Wow.

Please help us help a possible un-documented South Carolina State Heritage Horse, the Marsh Tacky.

Estimated $500 for transport (cost of gas)  and purchase price is $1,100.

Let me tell you what is going on and I am going to hope that all of you Molly Fans and Marsh Tacky Enthusiasts and Educators are willing to lend a hand.  This horse in the video below was brought by an individual to Bastrop, LA for sale.

He was delivered without papers or registration status.Everyone knows papers can get lost and foals not get registered although they came from registered parents.

He is 5 years old (old enough to be from the Marsh Tacky auction held a few years back) and has 90 days of training according to the video.

I have someone who is willing to transport him back to his home state, South Carolina, where there is already a home offer available for him. Marsh Tacky Tales will cover parentage testing cost for this horse. Our fundraising goal will be to cover purchase price. Anything over will go to board/transport.

*Please help us help a possible un-documented South Carolina State Heritage Horse, the Marsh Tacky*

He is tag# 3533, Marsh Tacky Horse (no papers, registration unverified) 14.3 grulla gelding, 5 years old, 90 days under saddle.

Please Donate through this GoFundMe account

*if bail is not reached and horse has shipped to slaughter, all funds will be returned*

Completely last minute invite to The Divine Horse  on Saturday! I absolutely love being able to attend local events to promote the SC State Heritage Horse. It’s been a few years since I have been out to the elementary schools in York County. I met so many wonderful people on Saturday and enjoyed conversing about one of the best kept secrets of South Carolina, the Marsh Tacky Horse.

A great big Thank You to divinehorse

The Divine Horse is currently carrying the Beach Race Champion, A Marsh Tacky Tale. Please stop by for your copy.

Saving the Marsh Tacky Horse through education, one book at a time.

Marsh Tacky Tales is working towards a few other books, working titles are Mariah, and The Colonels Little Tacky and a few more. Our original joint research has discovered incredibly rich stories about these unique horses from the Low-country to the Piedmont and Foothills of South Carolina and we are excited to share them!

Kathy Holbert is excited to bring the World of Breyer Horses to her customers. Now that The Divine Horse has a Brick & Mortar presence, Holbert decided to choose Breyer as a new product line. She said the decision to carry Breyer wasn’t hard to make. She enjoyed Breyer horses as a child and wanted to pass her Breyer models on to her daughter, so it was an easy decision. Black Beauty and PVF, Peace of Mind are her two favorite models.breyer1

Stablemates, Christmas Breyer models, Christmas Breyer model ornaments, and of course new Breyer models are only a part of the Breyer line being presented. Don’t forget Justify, the 2018 Triple Crown Winner, is one of the new models Breyer is working on and will be available in October. The Divine Horse is awaiting their second shipment of Breyer horses that will double their inventory. The model of Snowman and the book about his life, “The Eighty Dollar Champion”  will be in the next shipment.  Holbert already has Black Beauty and Little Prince story and model available in store. Holbert is glad to bring the Breyer model horses to more people who will cherish their memories of collecting and playing with the models as she did as a child.
