About a third of our horses need shoes to address various medical issues. From barefoot trims to custom shoes, taking care of 80 feet is no joke!
All our horses get alfalfa instead of hay. We go through 10 3-strand bales (120 lbs each) a week in the summer, when there's lots of grass. That's $220 a week.
With our focus on seniors, we feed Blue Bonnet Senior Intensify, and we go through a bag a day. That's $22 a bag, $154 a week.
Love goes a long way, but supplements make a huge difference in seniors. Our dogs eat Orijen, Omega3 oil, and Zuke's hip action every meal. That's $245 a month. (You don't want to know how much the horse supplements cost!)
Our horses love the vet (and he loves us). With older horses, most who have special needs, we joke that we keep the lights on at our vet. Think thousands...$$$
We wage war on flies. Fly predators, fly masks, fly spray, feed through Simplify, fly traps, plus we clean all the pastures every day. Fly spray alone is $70 a week.
All donations go 100% to the care and feeding of the animals. Donations do not pay any salaries. No one on our Board receives any money from GRS; in fact, our board members donate. Anything you contribute helps our animals, and no amount is too small! You can view our shopping list here.
Tractor Supply, Horseman's Supply, and Teskey's gift cards are also helpful!
As of September 2021, Gracie is sponsored for $125/month, Sonar is sponsored for $100/month, and Maggie and Raie are each sponsored for $25/month. All other donations were made to the general fund. We are just getting started and need your help to continue and expand!
If you have new or like-new items that you would like to donate to the animals, please let us know - we would be thrilled to have the help. Halters, leads, tack, shampoo, fly spray, muck buckets, rakes, dog and cat beds, toys, and towels are always appreciated! If you'd like to volunteer, please email us.
Thank you for your support!
