"We had such an overwhelming response to our Christmas eBay auction that we are making other Moneighs available now to raise funds to place more thoroughbreds into good adoptive homes," said Sue Swart, ReRun's executive director.
She noted that a Moneigh by 2004 Kentucky Derby (gr. I) and Preakness (gr. I) winner Smarty Jones
raised over $3,000.
According to ReRun, the non-profit Thoroughbred adoption group, each Moneigh is unique in style and color by the equine artists, who create the paintings by using their noses, lips and tails. A hoof print, lock of mane and brass name plate complete the paintings which are trademarked by ReRun.
