Thanks to some generous donations, the auction fund is currently at $540. We really appreciate your gifts of life! The auction is coming right up in a few weeks, let us hope that there are not as many horses in need as there were this month. We would like to thank Lori H, Sara H, Cynthia B and Carolyn H for their generous donations today. The rescue cannot run without your support!
Bay Area Equestrian has posted the video that Jason co-starred in. Click here to watch the video. It was nicely done, and hopefully it will educate people on what happens if they dump their horse at an “easy out” option like a livestock auction or place a “free, 1st come 1st serve” type of add.

Naomi came out today to pick up some extra tack to be sold at a yard sale. Hopefully the yard sale sells the tack for a lot of money that will then be used to rescue and care for the horses. Thank you so much for your help Naomi!

Belle, the pony that came in yesterday, amazes us with her beautiful long mane. She is really a stunning little horse to look at.
The entire office day was spent taking pictures of the items for the skating party silent auction, cataloging them, and building the webpage dedicated to the skating party. It just seemed to keep going and going… But, it is finished for now. Read on to learn all about the skating party and what items will be at the silent auction. There is also a link on our home page. Also on our website you can sign up to let us know if you are coming or not. It will help us know how many people to expect, so please click here to be taken to the Skating for Horses page where you can sign up. The following is the writeup that is on the website for your convenience.

Skating For Horses!

You are invited to join NorCal Equine Rescue at Cal-Skate in Chico, Ca. Come celebrate the horses that have been saved while enjoying a day of exciting fun for the whole family.

Admission is only $5 for adults, free for kids under 12. You can “sneak” in for free, but be prepared to be thrown in the fundraiser jail and you can’t get out until the jailer is satisfied you have raised enough bail donations by calling your friends for donation pledges! A plaque on the jail will keep track of the best jailbird.

There are also many games and entertainment planned for this day. It will be a fun filled day that the whole family will enjoy and remember! Keep an eye on this page as the activities are ironed out for updates. There will certainly be roller skating, miniature golf, and a silent auction. We are also planning a skating gymkhana, with skating Barrel Racing, skating Pole Bending, and more! If you are planning on being in the skating gymkhana, you will be able to sign up the day of the skating party. We would like to encourage you to bring a new or gently used item to be sold in the silent auction.
