Photo Contest – Your Turn to Vote


June 1. 2013

imagesGuaranteed – If anyone thinks making the decision on the final photos was easy, they are wrong. We went through around 500 entries yesterday, spreading our favorites out before others, trying to match the very best of the best.

The goal was to have nine for the final vote but, in the end, we just couldn’t do it. There are twelve in the final stage instead of nine. You guys have done a fantastic job, and I thank each of you for participating. If you didn’t make the final cut, there will be another chance in a few months..

The voting page is up, and now the public is invited to give your own opinion. Only one vote per person to prevent someone from trying to cram the results. The winner will be announced on the 15th of June.

While you are voting, please consider what we are trying to show – a horse rescued from a 501.c.3 rescue that shows the personality and the special relationship of the adopter and the horse. 

The winner will receive 1,000 pounds of horse feed from your local Purina Feed Dealer. Habitat for Horses will pay for the feed, you pick it up and use it as you see fit. Some even suggested donating it to the rescue, which I think is a great idea.

One more thing – I’ve said this before but I want to stress it  – winning a photo contest is great, but not winning is okay, too, because each of you already won. Don’t believe me? Ask your horse. 

The final voting is open to everyone! To see the final twelve and to cast your vote for the winner – CLICK HERE!


Habitat for Horses is a 501.c.3 nonprofit equine protection organization supported solely by donations. As of this morning, we have 162 donkeys and horses under our care, plus one mule. Most of them are here because law enforcement removed them from their previous owner. Our ability to rehabilitate and rehome them comes from the financial support of people like you. Please support us by making a donation for the horses we all serve. Click HERE to donate

    You’re absolutely right, that was a difficult decision! Choosing just one that showed pure and mutual love and gratitude toward each other was tough, because they all did. Looking forward to seeing the results! Bless you, HfH, that was a kind and generous thing to do 🙂

  • This is such a great idea to bring awareness of how wonderful a rescued horse is! I can feel the love for the horses in ALL of the pictures. Not an easy decision! Sharing this on social networking media too – happy voting everyone!

    I agree, it was hard. I had it narrowed down to 2 but there was that one that spoke loudest to me. Can’t wait to see the winner.

    Whew… they are all touching. I ended up voting for the actual photograph which may not have been the most touching, but my favorite visually. I love them all and it took a long time and many tears to cast my vote for only one….. Thank you everyone who rescues and loves a horse. They will surely love you!
