Giving Tuesday (Week) - Models Helping Animals!

This year, we're happy to announce our Giving Tuesday recipient is Harvest Hills Animal Shelter.      This year, we'll be donating 10% of our total sales from November 29th to December 3rd to Harvest Hills, as beneficiary of our annual Giving Tuesday Week promotion.  That's 10% of ALL items sold... but if you happen to buy items from our Harvest Hills Charity Collection, which were donated to the shelter, they get a bonus, because the sale goes to them, PLUS 10%. We've had a long relationship with Harvest Hills, starting in 2016 when a local tack shop that was...

Help Us Support Domestic Violence Victims & Prevention

Hi Everyone, It's a tough subject for many of us to discuss, but it's so important that we do:  One in three women and as many as one in four men will experience domestic violence in their lifetimes.  This is a problem that can only occur if it's kept secret, so making it known and making resources available to those who need them is critical.  With so many people staying in their homes this year, the problem is made worse, as fewer people outside the household may be able to see and stop violence.  We don't often hear about the...

Help Animals Through Australia's Devastating Brush Fires

This year, Australia and Tasmania are caught in the most horrifying wildfire season ever recorded.  As of a few days ago, over 12.35 million acres have burned - about equal to the entire states of Vermont and NH. Heartbreakingly, over 1500 homes have burned and at least 24 humans have died, along with an estimated 500 MILLION animals.  The fires are still uncontrolled and spreading.  The map below, published on January 5th, shows the active fires raging right now, alongside an image of that map overlaid onto the US for scale. We've seen devastating fires in the Western US, but...
