Good Monday Morning to All,
We hope this finds all of you well.
This past week has been very busy. With our grandchildren visiting we have been hopping. We have not done a great deal special. The children are more interested in bathing the horses and a little pony ride when they are able.
Our seven yr old granddaughter has learned about feeding the horses and giving them water. She has surprised us all by going out and feeding and feeding them herself, she has it down pact but we double checked. She wanted to surprise us. She spends so much time with them. We asked her how she knew what to give, and she said I have watched you and grandpa....who at this point is her favorite man in her life. She has a knack with horses, it is amazing. Our little grandson is more intrigued with the dogs and his monster trucks and the water hose when bathing, so you have to watch where you stand, or you will be bathed as well.
We do have a very special fundraiser going on right now and that is the Needle in the Hay Stack. This will pay for all the shots for the rescued horses which is part of their health and welfare. There is so much more to caring for the horses than just saving them, it is a continued effort. They must have inoculations, hay etc. We do not have many that are adoptable for riding, but we do have many that would make wonderful barn buddies for that single horse who may be lonely. We also have a generous donor who has stated if our goal is met will donate a wonderful amount of hay for the horses. Again it is not just about the save but the after care. So if you can, the shots are $70.00 per horse and this includes physical. Our vet is on our advisory board and he will be conducting this on his day off so he can concentrate on our horses for the day.
Thank you so much for your support. It makes a big difference in their lives! Most are older horses but they need the same care as a younger one as well. Please, Please take this into consideration, each horse needs that someone special in their lives!
