For immediate release
Equine Dreams is pleased to announce that it is the recipient of a $10,000 grant from the Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley. The funds will be used to purchase a tractor. “A tractor keeps Equine Dreams future operating costs down through allowing us to manage our property independently. We will not have to hire someone to plow our drive in the winter, and will be able to manage our pastures and maintain our sensory trail. Our heartfelt thanks go out to the Community Foundation for their continued support of our mission. We appreciate their confidence in our ability to continue to provide a truly unique and beneficial service to this community.” said Windy Kopecky, board member and instructor for Equine Dreams.
