Eat a cow, save a horse

Don’t be too puzzled by the potential irony of saving a horse by eating a cow. Equine rescue ranch The Grace Foundation of Northern California is having a “fun-raiser” to aid the 35 abused and neglected mustangs it took in from Texas during November at Ernie’s of Lake Tahoe (707-A East Bidwell Street in Folsom) Wednesday, January 27, from 5 to 7 p.m. For just $10 you get a burger, fries, a shake and a chance to take care of the horses, without getting your hands dirty with anything other than ketchup. For more information, visit or call (916) 941-0800.
