Our hay drive was a huge success and we thank you!

Thanks to matching funds that were pledged, we raised the funds needed to get a semi-load of this year’s new Bermuda hay. This will last our 23 equines through July. The hay is very dry and clean and we thank K&M Transport.

Our weather had gotten warm and it sometimes seems that the watering chores take more time than feeding. The animals appreciate getting their tubs cleaned daily and getting fresh water.

Some of the horses like getting hosed off and Rusty was taking a roll in the sand after getting wet in this picture.

Knickers turns 33 this month. He is always an inspiration, as he survived against all odds and is an indomitable spirit.

Well, old Warrior never did stop wanting to chase Bayron. So, our neighbor volunteered to come with his grader to clear a fence line so we could cross fence. Thank you, Mike Gannuscio. Now, Warrior, Penny and Red have one area and Lucky and Bayron have another. Lucky and Bayron are very fond of each other and love to play. Our next project to be done very soon is to add an additional shed roof on the north end of the current shelter, so Bayron and Lucky will have shade and protection from the elements, should they seek it.

I think I cracked a bone in my foot early in April, but I could not stand the “boot” I got, so I just kept it wrapped for a few weeks and I am limping along much faster now. I even managed to keep up with the hoof trimming.

Once again, we are very thankful for the support of our friends, without whom we could not provide a safe haven for these wonderful animals.

Love,

Cathy & The Gang
