A most heartfelt thanks from all of us, humans and equines alike, to our many friends who made our tack sale, dog wash, and pony ride at The Farm Store's Pet Adoption Fair a huge success. Thanks to you we raised almost $2000.
Board members Kira and Becky combined their talents and hours of hard work to create the professional, inviting HRHR information display. Our president Misty and volunteer Jen staffed the table to answer questions and help folks become more aware of the needs of local horses.
Members Marie and Carey take a break to visit and prepare for their next shift leading ponies so kindly provided by local trainer Jody Swanlund.
Jody spent the day donating her time to help HRHR raise the funds we need to prepare for winter. We can tell you from personal experience that Jodie is an amazing trainer. She jumped in to help us load Quincy a few weeks ago when our very upset boy was determined not to get into the trailer that would take him to Hill Crest Stable to work with another talented trainer, Heather Snow-Flamer.
Many people enjoyed visiting Angel who hopes that one kind family will return to adopt her and take her home forever.
Our semi-annual tack sale depends on the kind donations from many local friends. Thanks to our donars, we are able to fundraise and our supporters got some great deals on used tack.
Our member Carey worked hard all day sorting tack, answering questions, and helping people select just the right piece of tack.
If you missed your chance to buy one of our striking HRHR t-shirts for the great price of $10.00, visit our online store, or email us with your size, name and address.
A horse rescue requires many talents, united to maintain the organization, balancing healthy management with the passion of rescue. HRHR is fortunate to have a devoted group of volunteers working within a supportive community.
We are a horse rescue, but many of our members are involved in other community efforts as well. Board member Kira provides foster homes for dogs from our local county shelter. Here she is with Milo, an exceptional human/dog/horse friendly guy who really needs a great home.
Thank you Tim Shreve at The Farm Store, Thommie Haskins at The Farm Store; the hard working crew of California Conservation Corps members who assisted our member Mary with the dog wash; Jodie Swanland for helping us in a pinch and donating your time and your extremely well-trained gorgeous ponies for our pony rides; and all of our wonderful volunteers.
