In Memory of Andrew Phipps

Everyone at MHARF wants to extend our deepest sympathy to the family of Andrew Phipps. Andrew passed away unexpectedly at age 22 on February 12, 2018. Andrew had a lifelong love of horses and worked many hours caring for them at a stable in Afton, Minnesota. Andrew is the beloved son of Chuck and Ann Phipps and brother to Samuel and Graham.

Because of Andrew’s love of animals, his family has generously designated MHARF as recipient of memorial donations. We cannot thank them enough for thinking of us at this tragic time. Our thoughts and prayers are with Andrew’s family and friends.

In Memory of Mary Lee Marly Whiting

MHARF is extremely grateful to have received a donation from the Estate of Mary Lee (“Marly”) Whiting. Marly was an animal lover, dog trainer, and accomplished horsewoman who showed American Saddlebreds throughout her life. How very kind of Marly to remember MHARF in her estate planning so that many more equines will continue to benefit from her generosity! We also want to thank her Estate Trustees, Roberta Cole and Sheryl Juhl for all of their assistance! You can find Mary Lee Whiting’s full obituary HERE.
