Yes, that is a picture of hay. We are almost out of the 1024 bales we got back in May! This in addition to the 450 bales donated by All Roads Communications earlier this summer has fed hundreds of hungry rescued horses.
But it’s time for hay again. This hay was $9.99 a bale, and that is 94 bales sitting on the trailer. This will last right about a week. We are actively pursuing the absolute cheapest source of hay possible.
Being that we have so many horses in the rescue and not enough homes for them to go to, we had to make a list for the Last Act of Kindness. Most of these horses have been here for months and months with little to no interest in them. We simply cannot rescue more horses from slaughter without saying “Goodbye, we love you!” to horses that were spared the cruelest of endings. Thankfully Home At Last had openings for 4 horses, so they chose a lucky 4 to have a forever home at their wonderful sanctuary and adopted them up today.
Navajo was surrendered into our rescue program by Butte County Animal Control back in May.
Home at Last can take 10 more horses into their sanctuary with a lifetime sponsorship of $100 per month, per horse. We would love to see horses with seemingly no hope placed into a forever sanctuary. Please contact us if you would like to sponsor a horse at Home at Last. Please remember that it would be a commitment for the lifetime of the horse.
It’s so nice to have some more hay sitting at the rescue. We talked to the hay place about having hay delivered by the semi, and we can get it delivered and stacked for $12 a bale. It seems really high, unfortunately, that’s probably the cheapest it will be until spring. We are hoping to have 1500 bales delivered as soon as the hay barn is up. It takes a lot of hay to provide food for so many rescued horses! And, it takes a lot of money to buy the lot of hay to provide a lot of food for the rescued horses!
