Hello All,

Electra is doing great. On the 27th of August it will be 30 days that her hernia surgery was performed and successfully repaired.

A bit of information for those who may be interested. We go through 224 bales plus of Orchard/Alfalfa mix each month to feed 29 rescue/sanctuary horses. Robert and I have four personal horses that we pay for ourselves. There are three other horses that are privately owned and their owners pay for their horses feed. So the 224 bales of hay are just the feed for the rescue/sanctuary group. This does not include the supplements that are being fed to two Cushing horses as they are free fed the hay 24/7 plus are on rice bran daily (as prescribed by our veterinarian as both these boys are presently under his care).

Hay costs are $18.00 per bale and that is the going price in our area. We are however researching other sources to see if we can get good quality hay at a lower rate. We do not feed poor quality hay as it is not beneficial to the horses or our budget. We feed hay that the horses will eat, enjoy and not waste.

We hope that you will consider even the donation of one bale of hay, we are in need of hay and it is all about the horses. You can donate via "Haypal" aka Paypal through our website.

Thank you so very much.

Stephanie and Rob
