The first of May we took in an aged Belgian draft horse we named Henry-for those of you who do not follow us on Facebook, Henry has quite the devoted fan club! In his mid to late 30’s, he worked hard for humans his entire life, has the scars to prove it, and his thanks for service was to take him to auction and discard him like trash for the kill buyers to purchase him for slaughter. Fortunately we had enough support to intervene and brought him to our sanctuary to retire in peace.
Now that Henry looks “normal” and is happy, our support in the form of financial donations have drastically dropped over the past 2 months, so low in fact, we are unsure how we are going to pay our current vet bill for Big Mack, Buddy and Eagle!
The dentist needs to be scheduled for the horses, and the monthly costs of feed, hay, supplements, medications and hoof trims must also occur.
We are asking you to consider a donation, whether it be one time or a recurring monthly contribution, all of which will enable us to give these wonderful horses what they deserve and allow them to be their best under our care.
Please feel free to share this with others, the more that know about our work with special needs senior horses, the more support we are likely to gain.
For more information about our horses, please view each of their Web pages! We also have a page for our current Fundraisers, to include T-shirt and Wine sales and a chance to own a fabulous custom rope rocker! We also keep a Wish List of items we routinely use.If you shop on-line, you can install the iGive.com button safely on your computer and help support our sanctuary while you shop! This is a free and easy way to help!
Thank you for your continued support!
