FARMINGTON - The Giddy-Up & Go 4-H Horse Club in Franklin county is hosting their 13th annual fundraiser for the Double B Equine Rescue in Industry.

The rescue currently has 23 equines. Donations of any monetary amount and/or hay, grain, shavings, tack, equipment or related items would be greatly appreciated as they care for these minis, donkeys, ponies and horses who have been through so much already.
