ANGIE & SKYE are great examples of the transfiguring impact of Quality Hay 24/7
Do you know that Horses do best when given access to hay ad lib – as much as they’ll eat. As much as this may sound ludicrously expensive, the savings on vet bills and on supplements make access to quality hay one of the best investments we can make for rescued Horses at Unbridled.
As the temperatures begin to drop, hay consumption increases by about 25%. Our current rescue and sanctuary horses are eating approximately $50 worth of hay per day. In other words, we spend about $1,500 per month on HAY ALONE. We have made the most of this year’s grass, and this evening’s frost will zap out the last of its nutrients rendering its value to lip service.
In the colder months Thoroughbreds require extra Hay to maintain their body temperature without decreasing body weight. WE NEED TO SET ROUND BALES IN THE PADDOCKS THIS WEEKEND … Each Bale weighs about 500-lbs and we can’t do it without you. We can handle the heavy lifting … but we can’t bear the weight of the purchase without your financial help.
The Horses we rescue come from situations of abuse, neglect, and slaughter yards. They arrive dejected, dispirited, and hungry. With time, space, and sustenance we have rejoiced in watching them transform into confident, healthy, and trusting companions. Since our founding in 2004, we have been able to redeem hundreds of Horses out of dire circumstances and within hours of transit to slaughter plants. The majority of these horses have found wonderful homes through our adoption program over the years. Transitioning each unwanted Horse into the next chapter of his or her life with confidence, dignity, and abundant love is the embodiment of the ethos of our work.
Starting now, we will go through 4 to 5 Large Round Bales per week! Access to Quality Hay 24/7 is crucial to the health and well-being of our Horses. Not all hay is created equal; we only buy hay that is organic, stored indoors, tested for nutrient content, and from local farmers we know and trust.
As we provide daily care for the Horses we have rescued, we hope we can count on your continued generosity. EVERYDAY, we have a waiting list of a dozen or more Horses in need of urgent care. To aid in their recovery, we must have our portion of Round Bales stocked for Winter. Will you help feed the Herd?
