It’s finally here – Eve’s virtual yard sale! Over the past 10 years, we’ve accumulated things that we don’t use anymore (or never used to begin with), so we’re putting them all up for sale with all proceeds going to the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation.
It’s Eve’s stuff, so I feel that she’d want the sales of her things to go toward a cause she supports – the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation. As an old, retired ex-racehorse, I think it’s the perfect non-profit for us to support. I’ve worked with them previously when shooting one of their ceremonies for their Second Chances program, so I’ve been able to see firsthand their amazing work. Here’s a little bit about them:
Founded in 1983, the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation is a national organization devoted to saving Thoroughbred horses no longer able to compete at the racetrack from possible neglect, abuse and slaughter. As the oldest Thoroughbred rescue in the country, the TRF provides sanctuary to retired Thoroughbreds throughout their lifetime.
Best known for its pioneering TRF Second Chances program, the organization provides incarcerated individuals with vocational training through its accredited equine care and stable management program. At six correctional facilities across the country this program offers second careers to its horses and a second chance at life for inmates upon release from prison.
TRF cares for more than 500 rescued and retired Thoroughbreds at TRF Second Chances prison farms and Sanctuary Farms across the country. The organization is funded entirely by private donations. The TRF is accredited by Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance and has a Platinum rating with Guide Star. For more information visit: https://www.trfinc.org/
So take a look at the things we have to sell. The yard sale will remain open until everything is sold. Whatever doesn’t sell will be reduced in price. If you’re interested, email me the item you want to buy. It’ll be a first come first serve basis. If you want to know more about a product, just contact me and I can send you more pics or info. My email is email@example.com.
All prices do not include shipping. Please excuse Eve’s phenomenal modeling skills. I will do my best to make sure everything is as clean as possible prior to shipping.

Nose Net $ 7 – SOLD
Barely used nose net size medium attachment for bridles (but modeled with a halter because I was too lazy to get her bridle). Bought for when Eve would not stop shaking her head in the summer. My instructor at the time thought the bugs might be bothering the princess, so someone in our lesson let me use theirs. Eve did a bit better, so I went out and bought one myself. But we ended up not actually using it.

Cashel brand poll guard bought for a one time Halloween costume, looks new.
Navy Blue Blanket Size 80 $75 (shipping included)
Update!! Sorry – this blanket is actually a size 80. But it’s too big for Eve. I could’ve sworn on my life the tag said 81, but I double checked and it is 80…but it’s still too big for Eve and is her back-up blanket. Only used a handful of times. It’s a medium-weight and will be washed and waterproofed prior to shipping. Clips and straps are all in working order.

Never used. Brand new purple design horse jammies. Horse size. Didn’t know how they went on, so Eve modeled it as she saw fit.
