   of Redwings include permanent residents who, due to age, illness, or injury are not adoptable and will live out their lives at the sanctuary. Others are available for adoption as companions or for adoption for riding.
The adoption program ensures that horses go to approved and loving homes. Those interested in adopting first fill out an adop-
tion application and have a home inspection before being approved to adopt. During the first year of adoption, Redwings staff keep a close eye on the adopted horse and make sure they are happy, healthy, and a good fit for the new family.
Upcoming events
Redwings holds several edu- cational and fundraising events throughout the year. This fall, take advantage of the Equine Photogra- phy Workshops with the Essence Captured Equine Photography Group.
The workshop is October
19th from 1-7 p.m. Learn equine photography techniques from three experienced photographers (Lori Sortino, Deb Hofstetter and Cathy Wallace) who have worked together since 2019. The workshop includes a review of equine photography, taking photographs in the shade
of a barn and natural lighting and
post-processing edits. After dinner, photograph the sanctuary’s horses in their pastures while the sun gets lower on the horizon.
