So far we have received over 30 essays for LexLin Gypsy Ranch’s Honoring Our Heroes promotion. For those of you that haven’t heard we are giving away a beautiful Gypsy Vanner horse named Braveheart to a veteran on July 4, 2011. All you have to do is visit our web page www.gogypsy.comhonoringourheroes for details and rules.
Some of you have had questions about the length of time served in Iraq or Afghanistan. The nominee must have served one year. That is the requirement as it is written in our rules, so for this year we need to stay consistent and limit our entries to those who meet that criterion. We will keep this in mind for next year and possibly change this requirement to a shorter length of time.
We polled people on LexLin’s Facebook Fan Page (if you haven’t done so already, please “Like” our page, this helps spread the word) to see who we should honor next year. Here are the results! There was a significant response to equine rescues and particular branches of the military. We will narrow these categories down and ask everyone to vote again…stay tuned!
If you haven’t nominated your veteran do so today or pass this information along to someone else. The voting begins on June 2o, 2011! We know that Braveheart will have a fantastic home with a deserving US veteran.
