With all of the COVID-19 restrictions over this past year, all the non-profits have taken a big hit, including our Save-A-Horse Program. Our Program was not able to do any of the fundraisers, open houses, trail rides, or any other gatherings we had done in the past. As all of you know, the bills didn’t stop when the virus hit. Our little spokes horse, Tinkerbell the miniature horse, had some unexpected health issues we had to address, so she could be back fit and ready to go out and promote the program. Her veterinary bills, along with the normal expenses, really took a toll on our reserves. We also had one of the horses that was adopted out have to come back. His owner was moving and not able to take him along, so we had to find a new home. We also have Pete still looking for his forever home. The monthly expenses for Tinkerbell and Pete are still there, so until we can get back up to full speed with income, we are not able to afford to help any other horses. Every little bit helps us care for these animals and with out your help we can’t help them. We know that in these times everyone needs to choose where their support goes.
The Save-A-Horse Program works to rescue, rehab (medically and with any needed training), and rehome unwanted horses; in addition, we work to educate the public on proper horse care, can help with questions on pasture maintenance, appropriate tack selection and fit, all to better serve your beloved equine. This all takes financial support. This year we plan, as appropriate, to get back out there to the public with Fun Shows, Booths, MINI horse rides, educational workshops, and more, but until then we need your support. Thank you for your generosity and continued support.
