Minis In Need

I had hoped to send out a more detailed update, but as always, something arises and I am unable to do so, but I need to apprise you of an urgent case involving four mini’s. The owners are elderly – both husband and wife are in the hospital and they can no longer care for their precious horses – a 28 year old stud, a 32 year old mare, and their offspring, a 16 year old mare and a 5 year old stud.

Although we are maxed out and have horses coming back to the rescue, we feel that we simply cannot turn our back on these sweet minis. There is a special urgency regarding the two elderly horses and we have a temporary solution as to where we can put them on the farm, thanks to the help of a supporter. They deserve to live out the remainder of their days, no matter how many that may be, in a loving environment and with proper care. They need coggins, full physicals (including blood work), dentals and hooficures. In order to help them, however, we need sponsors. Please – can anyone help with a one time or recurring monthly donation? We can start with pledges – I will get a cost estimate tomorrow after speaking with the vet. We can’t move forward without help from our village.

The two younger minis are in good shape and also need homes. The 5 year old stud has an issue with a back foot deformity that can be managed. The couple who owns the horses have a son who is willing to oversee the younger ones until a home is found (hopefully soon). They do not have to stay together and we’ve recently been advised that the 5 year old stud may have a home offer. I’d hate to think of the 16 year old mare being left behind, so please, if you may be interested in either of the two younger ones, please contact us and we can put you in touch with the owner’s son.

We also desperately need help placing horses that are ready for adoption – Zahara, Rosita, Baby Ray, Sophie, Tinsel, SeAnna, and others. Kandi and Shaker, two National Show Horse mares,  need placement ASAP –  Kiana will be available after 30 days of training which has been generously sponsored.  Additional information will be sent out about regarding these horses.

Match Game

A wonderful friend and supporter has come forth to offer a Match Game, whereby, all donations up to $500, will be matched dollar for dollar. Donations will be applied to RX medications for the horses.

If you would like to play the Match Game, you may do so via various means on our website at www.bhfer.org or via our PayPal address: bhfer@earthlink.net. If donating via PayPal, please designate your donation for ‘October Match Game.’ If you select the tab for ‘Friends or Family,’ no fees will be deducted from your contribution. Please be assured that all donations are greatly appreciated and no amount is ever considered as being too small.
