Help us choose or take photos for our next calendar

This year is our 20th Anniversary.

And our year-long celebration has begun!



Throughout the month of January, our Chore Helpers will be taking photos of our rescued horses and posting their fave photos here on our website for everyone to enjoy. (photos are at the bottom of this post)

We have also turned this fun photo frenzy into a fundraiser for our rescued horses! 

So, we invite everyone to participate!

If you want to participate from home, simply vote for your fave photos by making a donation. 

$10 per vote. (If you are donating 20 votes total, your donation amount will be $200, for example.) It's OK to vote multiple times for the same photo. It's OK to vote for multiple photos. It's OK to make multiple donations.

To vote, use the "Donate" button here on our website. Scroll up to the top of this post.

When you use the "Donate" button to vote, include a note letting us know how many votes you are casting for which photos. Each photo will have a name and number for identification. You may also send us this note by email to doublehphorses@aol.com or message us on our Facebook page. www.facebook.com/newhopehorses

Voting ends Sunday, Feb. 7 at midnight CST.

If you want to participate in person, we would love to have you come out and meet the horses and take your own pictures of them. Contact Darci to get the details and to schedule your visit.

Darci Hortness (605) 359-0961. Email - doublehphorses@aol.com.  

We will then add your fave photos to our website for everyone to see. All photos must be submitted by Jan. 31. Voting continues a week after that.  

The #1 vote-getting photo has a guaranteed spot in our 2022 calendar.

Names of photographers are anonymous during voting. Once voting is completed, we are happy to add your name as the Photographer to any of the photos you shared.

If you are a well-established photographer, we are happy to add your business name and contact info to your photos on our website.

If you are just getting a photography business going, we are still happy to add your business name and contact info to your photos on our website.

If you don't have a photography business but do enjoy taking pictures, you will be like most of us. And you are sincerely invited to join us, to participate in our celebration, to meet our rescued horses and take their pictures, and to share your pictures on our website. And we are happy to announce you as the Photographer of your photos on our website, too, once the voting is completed.

You never know which photo will be the fave among the voters. Maybe yours!

All donation money from this event will go directly to our rescued horses. There are 14 of them here. They are very well cared for here, very much loved, but very expensive. And we sincerely appreciate the support from the public. We are a 501c3 nonprofit, and donations are tax-deductible according to law.

Throughout the years, our volunteers physically and personally rescued most of these horses from severe starvation, at the request of Law Enforcement involved in neglect/cruelty cases. Once again, we really do appreciate donations from the public to help care for these rescued beauties that other people threw away. This January photo frenzy is a fun little way you can help.

Here are photos submitted. All photos here are taken in January 2021.  Just use the donate button on this website (scroll up to the top of this post) to vote and include a note letting us know which photos you are voting/donating for. Enjoy. And thanks!
