Com­mu­nity in­vited to Hoofs2010 Sanc­tu­ary

Southern Riverina news - - News -

Hoofs2010 Inc Brumby Sanc­tu­ary - the new­est ad­di­tion to the Ber­ri­gan com­mu­nity - is set to launch with an ex­cit­ing open day.

An open day on June 10 will start at 11am with a cer­e­mony.

Hoofs2010 Inc has been brought to the com­mu­nity by Lynette Sut­ton and her part­ner John.

Dur­ing the open day the Lions Club will be serv­ing re­fresh­ments, there will be en­ter­tain­ment, a chance to meet the brumbies, and face paint­ing for the kids.

Bring a rug or chair and en­joy a day in the pad­dock to hear some great singers and po­ets.

En­try to the open day is a gold coin with prof­its go­ing to the res­i­dent brumbies and fu­ture res­cues.

It was Lynne’s daugh­ter Steph who brought to her mum’s at­ten­tion the plight of Australia’s brumby, of­ten la­belled a ‘feral’ horse.

A prac­ti­cal and rea­son­able woman, Lynne pas­sion­ately vies for the rights of brumbies to have a place in Australia - be it do­mes­tic, plea­sure or oth­er­wise.

She has res­cued many horses from a less hon­or­able end, run­ning re­spon­si­ble and le­gal adop­tion, spon­sor­ship and a sanc­tu­ary for those yet to find a mean­ing­ful home.

These horses are not bred but saved, han­dled com­pas­sion­ately and homed to a di­verse range of peo­ple and pur­poses.

Lynne’s for­ma­tion of Hoofs2010 (Help Our Old Friends) is a bless- ing to Ber­ri­gan, not only in re­turn­ing its sta­tus as a hors­ing com­mu­nity, but it has gained at­ten­tion of many public fig­ures and or­gan­i­sa­tions.

Ever smil­ing and en­er­gised, Lynne’s dream of the sanc­tu­ary has al­ready brought many many vis­i­tors who utilise and dis­cover the charm of all Ber­ri­gan has on of­fer.

Do­na­tions and the work of Hoofs2010 com­mit­tee and branches are tire­less to see the brumby treated with some­thing more than ex­ter­mi­na­tion.

This sanc­tu­ary is an op­por­tu­nity for Ber­ri­gan to gain a new tourism ven­ture while do­ing what Ber­ri­gan does best - ‘help­ing out a mate in hard times’.
