2017 Hay Drive
Tonight we have
some VERY, VERY good news to share.....you ready?
The Hay Drive
for 2017 is over!
Dr. Jan and her
friend pitched in and issued the last Hay Drive challenge of the year the other
day. You (our supporters) met that challenge really, really quickly. Dr Jan and
friend paid up their part of the challenge today, getting us to the number you
see posted as our current total.
Then, today, we got
an email from a very good friend, who is also the State Director for the Humane
Society of the United States (Melissa T.) who played a huge role in getting us a
$1000.00 donation toward the Hay Drive. That payment should arrive any day and
that last check will end the Hay Drive for 2017. It will even take us a bit over
our goal by $135.00.
Boy oh boy do we
have a lot of people to thank and along the way we have named them all in our
forum posts, but we also need to thank Dr. Jan N and her friend for their super
generous and last challenge of the year. We also want to thank Jan A. who made
the last donation to the Hay Drive. We also really want to thank Melissa T. and
the HSUS for taking us across the finish line.
What we really want
to say and want everyone who pitched in to help know is that we could not be
more proud of our supporters and we admire absolutely every one of them. Not
many programs can simply ask for $14000.00 for hay and 23 days later, have that
money collected. What a truly amazing group of people you all are and we can
never convey to you all how much we truly appreciate all you do for us, this
program and the horses. You are truly amazing people and to us, you are all true
heroes......everyone pitching in together to make this world a better, safer
place for horses in need. There is no deed more noble and the people willing to
put their money toward something positive are what makes the horse community so
Thank you all!
Hay Drive Goal: $13,000.00
Raised so far: $12,165.00
Your donations go directly to the cost of hay to feed horses like the ones in
the photos below. Please help us help them.

we have some great supporters is a major understatement. We have the best
supporters anywhere, hands down. We are very proud of each and every
one of you.
