Wildhorse Ranch Rescue is a godsend," says Sandy. "My love for horses dates back to my pre-teen years as a stable boy on Staten Island [New York] and continues today. My only tattoo consists of a bust of a horse --"Flicka" -- depicted in a winners circle. WHRR does for animals what they cannot do for themselves. I will do all I can to perpetuate the necessary work of Wildhorse Ranch Rescue now and into the future. It's a no-brainer." Visit Sandy at www.sandygennaro.com.
