A Letter From the Founder
We have been a family and friend run rescue stable trying to run as a business and to keep horses from going to slaughter for the past 29 years. I have bought horses from auctions everywhere, individuals that didn’t want to sell to the auction and dealers who had a good horse. Trying to give them a second chance for a happy, healthy long life. We offered trail rides, lessons, pony rides and we used to break horses for other people [no more]. We raised babies from mares that were unable to be ridden anymore and sold them to good homes to help feed the mares. Everything always goes back to the horse, plus most of our income too. But now with all the price increases, hay fields, fence repairs, feed, medical expenses, blacksmith, fuel, up keep on farm equipment, purchasing hay from other sources, taxes, leasing ground close home and the loss of a farm we were leasing is a lot of work but most of all expensive. For years my friends have said ask for help what your doing is a good thing. I am not good at asking for help, but with the risk of the horses losing their happy home and the push of a friend, I am going to give it a try. So that the horses that are a big happy family and who have worked to stay here can end their life here peacefully and not have to leave to mistreatment, starvation, or worst of all death before their time [slaughter]. I have become a nonprofit 501(c)3 so I can ask for grants and so that people that look at it as a tax write off can help us. I am also asking for help from people with a heart. I am working on a lifelong story of how I started all this and why. And stories on all 51 horses and ask for sponsors for these horses to help them stay with their friends at their happy home. So, with your help and God willing we will make it. I told him he was the one that gave me a big heart and little brain so please help me now. More stories to come later. Please be patient I am busy taking care of them I don't have much time for paper work.
