AT stallion Jack, owned by Shadezeh Akhal-Teke LLC of Minnesota, showing off with his trainer at the Minnesota Horse Expo this past weekend.
The new HorseFlicks
series on the Akhal-Teke have arrived!
The DVDs have arrived! The ATAA produced a half hour promotional video with the company HorseFlicks, about the Akhal-Teke, in the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy (ALBC) Series titled ‘Extinction is Forever’. The intention of this series is to highlight the breeds on the Critical, Threatened, and Watch categories of the ALBC’s Conservation Priority List. As you know, the Akhal-Teke is listed as threatened on this list. This series is to be aired at least 18 times over a 36 month period (it could air as many as 30 times with bonus episodes). HRTV is reaching our target audience.
We had over 27 horses and over 30 people participate in 3 separate film locations around the country. Thank you to all of them!
We will be sending at least one to every person that either donated to this film or participated in it (one for each) in the next few weeks, but we are offering to sell these too. All ATAA members will also receive one in their membership packet, which will be going out in early April.
This would be another great thing to play at Expos or Breed Barns and a wonderful gift to give to potential buyers. Please get your orders in asap, so we can send all the DVDs at once.
