On the sad side, he now has 25 horses plus the baby so they will be advertised in the next week or so and should be going to the livestock auction in several weeks. Please spread the word – our organization can no longer buy any more of our beautiful spirits of the West!!! Our resources have been stretched to the brink and we need to budget what is left for the 80+ horses we still have and need to feed and care for and gentle them. If you are interested in buying any of these 26 horses, or know someone who is interested, please let me know. We will gladly help at the auction, but will need you to take possession of the horse(s) right away.
We can rescue/buy more horses only after we have adopted out more horses or unless we receive a large amount of donations for hay and care to cover us through 2013.
Please don’t forget the Board of Agriculture meeting scheduled for Tuesday, December 11th. We would like to have as many people as possible from across the Virginia Range attend as a show of support for the horses and in protest of the policies affecting our horses. We are targeting the public comment section of the meeting – any person interested in speaking will be allowed to speak for 2 minutes. The final agenda for the meeting should be available on their website tomorrow, Thursday.
