Countdown to Appaloosa Museum Raffle Drawing

TacFrom Sherry Caisley-Wilkinson, Museum Director

The winning name in the 2007 Appaloosa Museum Horse Raffle will be drawn on Friday, October 5th. Don’t miss the opportunity to buy your tickets for this year’s horse, a registered Appaloosa yearling filly named E Arrow Tac Meeymi. Yes, she’s the one in the photo.

Tac was named after the Nez Perce word ta’c meeywi (tots may-wee) which means “good morning”. A good looking bay with white blanket, a star and a snip, and three white socks; Tac’s pedigree includes National & World Halter Champion James Bond and ApHC Hall of Fame horses Wapiti, Goer, and Apache. Tac is halter broke and should be a great all-around prospect.

This delightful filly was generously donated by Dennis and Patricia Smith of E Arrow Acres in Cheney, Washington, making Tac the sixth horse they have donated to the Appaloosa Museum. The proceeds from this annual fundraiser are used to grant internships to students from our neighboring universities, University of Idaho and Washington State University. Additional funds benefit the Museum’s operating expenses and the new Live Appaloosa Exhibit behind the Museum where Tac and the Museum’s companion horse Apache Wyakim War (Pache) have lived since May.

Entries are $5 each or 5 for $20. You may purchase as many tickets as you wish and all donations are tax deductible. The raffle drawing will take place on Friday, October 5, 2007 at 12 noon. Winner is responsible for all transportation costs. For more information contact the Appaloosa Museum at (208) 882-5578, ext. 279 or visit Thanks for supporting the Appaloosa Museum!

    I thought there must have been a mistake, since I didn’t get the call that I’d won. The winner of the Appaloosa Museum raffle is Mert Mount of Potlatch, Idaho. Tac will be going to a good home where she’ll have several other horses for company. At least it’s a happy story for somebody.
