Retiring to Old Friends 2016
Old Friends thanks JBBA, and thank you to the Robert and Beverly Lewis Family Foundation and Tito’s Handmade Vodka for very generous contributions toward Charismatic’s return home.
Like all stallions entering the country from overseas, Charismatic will go through a multi-step government-required quarantine before and after his arrival at Old Friends. This period lasts for a variable number of weeks before he can be available for visits. For news, check @oldfriendsfarm on Twitter, oldfriendsequine.org, and our Facebook page.
And check back here for perspectives on our preparations. Coming next: Charismatic will be the first horse to use Old Friends’ brand new, luxurious quarantine suite! Get a photo look at what he’ll enjoy.
