OUR TRUCK SAVES HORSES! In 2011, our truck caught on fire and burnt up while on our way to pick up rescue horses. We raised the money and bought a used truck and it has been a blessing but it is 17 yrs old now and not only costing us thousands in maintenance but also endangering human and horse lives by being so unreliable. It is currently in the shop now with rear end issues. It's never a good time to fundraise for something like a truck but the rescue has to have one. We use the truck almost daily doing something for the horses. We use it to pick up rescue horses. We use it to deliver horses to their new homes. We use it to pick up hay, equipment, shavings. We use it to take horses to the vet. We use it to move horses from one farm to the other. As much as I hate driving it, it seems like I am always driving it somewhere. We have not decided on a brand yet. I will be contacting several of the local dealerships to see who will give us the best deal but we have to have funds to bargain with first. So we are going to get this fund started and we will nurse the old truck along in the meantime.
