The stables at Red Hill Road consist of 10 horses. Biscuit, Eagle Song, Silver, Jasmine, Dream Walker, Donner, Shay, Summer, Cody, Georgean Bay. All of the horses have been neglected, abused, or not wanted by their owners. At this farm they have a forever home and receive specialized food, medical treatment, and the security of never being mistreated again.
Our other barn consists of 9 horses. Which brings a total of 20 horses to the “herd”.
Every day the stables get cleaned and fresh bedding is given. We need volunteers every day for two hours to help with this chore. Every day, weather permitting, the Herd is turned out to pasture, and before that they are groomed, eyes are cleaned, face masks are put on in the summer, and the horses are checked over for sores, hoof problems, lameness, and any other problems.
