In celebration of John Lennon's birthday on Oct. 9, a letter written by John Lennon 40 years ago, has been anonymously donated to the Equine Angels Rescue Sanctuary (EARS) to help save baby horses from slaughter. The letter, containing self-portrait drawings by John and Yoko, will be auctioned off to raise funds to save doomed equines.

"The fact that John Lennon can still save these noble horses and change our hearts with the words in this letter, even now, from the far beyond, is amazing to me," said Frank Weller, president of EARS.

"We realize that the horses that we rescue go on to save many people along their rescue journey. They uplift their new families and many have given challenged children a happier life as they become the center of equine therapy programs, treating kids at risk," Weller said.

For more information on how to bid on the John Lennon letter, or to see a copy of the letter, please go to the EARS website at www.foalrescue.com.

Equine Angels Rescue Sanctuary is a 501(c)3, non-profit horse rescue based in New Milford, Conn. EARS rescues foals, mares and stallions from service in the Premarin industry. The foals are matched with families who provide forever, loving homes. They are monitored after adoption and during the last 10 years over 320 foals have been rescued. The mares and stallions (who get gelded) are put into sanctuary after being rescued.
