Since You Can't Come To The Horses, They're Bringing Them To You


As the coronavirus quarantine has extended well into Spring all over the country it’s hit the tourist industry in Kentucky particularly hard. Old Friends Thoroughbred Retirement Farm in Georgetown, which subsists on donations, grants and revenue from tours, gift shop and annual fundraisers, would normally be enjoying the busiest period of the year right now, welcoming upwards of a thousand visitors a week to their farm. Instead, they’ve found a way to bring the horses to you in your home. WUKY’s Samantha Lederman spoke to founder and president Michael Blowen.

Listeners might remember Lederman and her English accent from when she was a morning news anchor on WUKY from 1999 to 2001.
