Gratitude for Jane
A big shout out to Jane Allin who contributes so much to what we are able to accomplish. Jane is unparalleled in her research and analysis.
Although she typically writes about the Premarin horses and the horse racing industry, she excels no matter what topic you throw at her.
The horses have one of the strongest, most accurate voices in all of horse protection because of Jane. We cannot thank her enough, but we will keep trying.
