I have seen firsthand how dedicated everyone is for these great horses. I can't be there to help with the every day, but I do what I can to help raise much needed money to care for them.
All money raised goes directly to the care and feeding of these horses.
If anyone out there is ever even CLOSE to Old Friends at Dream Chase Farm, PLEASE stop by and fall in love with some champions!

I have visited Old Friends and seen this great operation in action. Michael Blowen is the founder of Old Friends. He is a dedicated man who serves these retired race horses with great respect and admiration. He works tirelessly to better Old Friends and take in as many horses as physically possible. The entire staff is a wonderfully functioning team that serve these animals so well. Old Friends can only profit and prosper with help of others who find the plight of used up race horses a disgrace. Old Friends is an outstanding non-profit.

I visited here this year and had a great tour of the horses. The tour guide was had a lot of knowledge and the horses looked very well cared for. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Old Friends is a GREAT non-profit organization that offers retirement to ex-race horses that are in need of rescue and retirement. I have donated and do support this rescue on a reglar basis. They are one of the few rescues that offer this kind of help to stallions.
