A Friend Indeed

by Kim Thomas

Join the Woodford Humane society this Saturday, at 11:00 a.m., for a special reading of A Friend Indeed by the author and owner of Pin Oak Stud, Josephine Abercrombie. The reading will take place at Joseph-Beth Booksellers, Lexington Green. This event is free to attend; a portion of book proceeds will be donated to homeless pets at Woodford Humane! All ages are welcome to come out and meet adoptable pets!

Josephine Abercrombie

Horses have always been a passion and dominating force of Josephine Abercrombie’s life. B orn in Kingston, Jamaica and growing up in Texas with no siblings, she was introduced to horses and began her riding career at age four. At age six, she showed her first horse, a polo pony named Lomita. Her father, James Smither Abercrombie, also known as “Mr. Jim” applauded her interest in horses and purchased 100 acres just outside Houston to establish Pin Oak Stables in 1938. Josephine became a skilled equestrienne before she was a teenager, winning the title of Champion Child Rider at an All-American Show in Ft. Worth. She often said that her mother, “Miss Lillie”, would not be watching from the box seats but would be in the ladies room "praying." And as a young woman, she became a champion show rider of gaited horses and a record holder at Madison Square Garden for prizes won in a single season.

Sandy Davis, of Woodford Humane Society advises, "If every cat had a home, every home would have 40 cats. That is why you must spay or neuter your pets. Another reason to spay or neuter is because a kitten can reproduce at just 4 months and can have 2 litters a year.

Approximately 25% of dogs waiting for homes are purebred. Adopt and save a life!
