We have been asked to provide information on planned giving on our website, so today Jason and Tawnee tackled the project. An estate donation is what launched us from rescuing 50 horses a year to hundreds. Please click here to read the information and consider making NorCal Equine Rescue part of your financial plan in the future.

Benji and Roy were adopted and headed off to their new home today! We were sad to see them go, but we are excited for their new future. They are both really sweet horses, we are sure that many wonderful adventures lay ahead of them.

The adoption papers were signed, and then the loading began. Benji was a little hesitant at first, but then he hopped in. Roy was the best yet, he got right in without a fuss.

Benji stuck his nose out to say “Goodbye” to the rescue, and they were off.

It was pretty hot today, when Tawnee was making the water trough rounds, she made sure the horses got cooled off too. They really enjoyed the cool water.

Some liked playing in the hose, lapping up the water as it splashed on their nose and mouth.

One of the horses that came down from Plumas County stood there and soaked up the water. She enjoyed every minute of it!

Mid afternoon some clouds came rolling over and gave the rescue some relief from the hot sun. All the horses certainly enjoyed the break from the high heat.

We had been expecting UPS all day. Naturally they were later than usual, just to keep us waiting. Finally, the big brown van came roaring around the corner.

The eagerly expected box arrived from CustomInk.com.

What was in the box? It was green and said something…

T-shirts! Lots and lots, over 30 shirts. The official uniform shirts for staff and volunteers. We can’t tell you how many times an event has come up, like the Animal Planet filming, the Nebraska rescue, interviews, etc and we always wish we had shirts to wear that proudly display who we are. Now we have them!

These sure beat having to draw “NorCal Equine Rescue” on green shirts with a sharpie, or printing out the logo on photo transfer paper and ironing it on. And, in the end, these are cheaper too. Jason and Tawnee modeled the shirts. The shirts look great! We would like to thank CustomInk for making great shirts, and for making a donation after we placed the order.

There are almost 20 people signed up to go to the skating party. We are looking forward to having a lot more people there than that, so invite all your friends! Remember, June 24th (Wednesday) from 1:00 – 8:00 pm. You can even come after work. If you are planning on coming, it would be great to know, please click here and sign up.

A beautiful Australian saddle was donated for the silent auction today. Thank you Deb for your thoughtfulness.

We would like to thank Judy H and Mad Hen Creations for their generous donations today. Please remember to check back this weekend for the Friday Rescue Story, next regular blog Sunday night! Have a great weekend.
