Hospice of the Eastern Shore Receives Monies From "Buyback" Pony

Each year during the Pony Penning Auction the purchase price of one "buyback" pony is donated to a charitable and worthy cause. The "buyback" pony is released back into his Assateague Island home (as all "buyback" ponies are) to live his days freely.

The "buy-back" family receives a plaque and gets the honor of naming the pony. This years winning bid on a "buyback" pony went to Molly Dailey and Virginia Sappington.

This year, for the second time, the Hospice of the Eastern Shore will receive the proceeds from the "buyback" pony purchase. Hospice is a nonprofit organization that serves the needs of patients and family that are faced with life-threatening illnesses.
