The auction is this weekend and we really need your help to save lives. As you know, nearly every month we attend auctions and rescue as many horses as we can from slipping into the slaughter pipeline, but we can only save horses with your financial help. Please help us save lives! Click here.
Dusty hopes everyone had a great Valentines Day last weekend. It’s so nice to see his tail growing out nicely and he being happy and healthy.
We got an update on Cisco, one of the horses we got from the 41 Grass Valley horses that we rescued recently. His adopter writes: “He made the six hour trip like a trooper. For the first week I just let him settle in and two days ago he was haltered. Yesterday he was tied to the fence and hosed off. He gave a little bit of a protest but nothing too bad. All in all he is a very kind boy. He loves being brushed and loved on. I see NO aggression only fear so it will take time to build his complete trust. He greets me at the fence and does not shy away, even after his hose down. He is gaining weight and filling out better. I will keep you all posted as we make further progress. Thank you so much for allowing me to make him a part of my family.”
Hank was disappointed that the first people who looked at him weren’t a great match, but then another family visited him and really fell in love. They put him in adoption pending! It was a great day finding two horses their potential forever homes.
Meanwhile we had people come for manure, it is wonderful that it is going to be put to use, and it’s great seeing the big pile get smaller. On Monday our staff tore down the rest of the white fence that had been blown over.
Its great to have a full barn. The left pile is Trinity Horse Refuge’s feed, and the right is Horse Plus’s. Trinity Horse Refuge is, of course, paying for their own feed. Our two boards have decided to let Trinity Horse Refuge share the facility with Horse Plus. They are a sanctuary, and we are a shelter, so it is not a conflict of interest. There is plenty of room at the shelter with 55 acres, and they will be helping out with the lease. It’s a win-win for both organizations!
Some more manure was on its way to its new home, we are so happy people are coming to take it away. In all there were 3 loads taken away today. One guy who came was told to back up to the pile of manure. He started backing up to the pile of cubes, but Larry quickly explained that he was looking at the horse feed, not manure.
