Saturday, the West Texas Hay Exchange will host an adopt-a-thon for local horse rescue associations. With the drought and economy, the rescues have been hit hard lately.
To help, the hay exchange will have adoptable horses, pony rides, pictures and more. The goal is not only to adopt out the horses, but also to raise awareness of the rescues as a place to adopt a horse and as a place to turn when someone is unable to care for their horse.
The hay exchange is located in Lubbock along F.M. 1585 near Avenue L. The adopt-a-thon runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
