Ontario Arabian Breeder Wins Horse Grooming Package

Equine.com’s ‘ 10-a-Day Everyday Giveaway’ reaches shores of Lake Huron

(TIVERTON, Ontario) December 15, 2006: On her family’s 79-acre spread overlooking the eastern shore of Lake Huron, Patricia Gras has lots of experience caring for horses in the winter months. What can be a difficult chore just got a little easier for the Tiverton, Ontario woman, as she has just won a winter horse grooming package in the Equine.com “10-a-Day Everyday Giveaway.”

Gerry and Pat Gras, owners of the Rockridge Arabians farm near Tiverton, Ontario, raise Arabians, half-Arabians and sport ponies. As the November winner in the online contest, Gras will receive a prize package that includes an Electro-Groom Horse Vacuum with Booster Power, a Wahl Chromado Horse Clipper, and an Oster 7-Piece Equine Care Series Kit. When contacted with the news that she had won, Pat’s reply was, “Merry Christmas to me!”

“I’ve been around Arabians all my life, and keeping them groomed in winter is no easy task,” said Gras. “We’ve already got a foot of snow here, so you have no idea how timely this prize is.”

Gras registered for the contest on the Equine.com Web site, which she visits three or four times a week to look at the many horses and equipment for sale. She has used the site successfully many times to advertise horses for sale and at stud.

“I’m glad our Winter Grooming Package is going to someone who can put it to good use,” said Aaron Bromagem, president and founder of Equine.com. “The Ten-a-Day Giveaway has been a great way to say thank you to all our customers, whether they’re in sunny California or on the snowy shores of the Great Lakes. If you’re a horse person, you’re always welcome into the Equine.com community.”
