A heartfelt thank you to Prairie Bay and Cash Wise Liquor. HART would like to thank Prairie Bay and Cash Wise Liquor of Baxter for giving us the opportunity to participate in the "Second Thursday" Wine Tasting fundraiser.
Because of these two businesses and folks who came out to support HART, the animals have about $1,000 to use for their care.

I want to say thank-you to the talented people involved in the Oxtrot. We spent a fun Saturday touring the Nisswa, Pequot, Pine River, and Crosslake oxen. They were definitely worth the trip. It was like being a kid again with everyone in car turning their heads to spot the next ox. It is amazing the unique visions that come from the same basic starting point. I can't even pick a favorite, though the Crosslake "Van Go-Gough" and the Pine River "Windy" might top the list. Thanks again.
