Since we couldn't very well have a barn dance without hay, we begged, borrowed & bought some at the last minute. It was kind of stressful till I realized all it meant to us was a few more folks would be standing instead of sitting. Unfortunately, the hay shortage can mean life or death for the horses at Meadow Haven Horse Rescue (Nixon, Texas). We were happy to donate the bales we had after the event to this worthy cause.
This is a daily struggle for them. Back when I had horses in 2002, I could get hay for $1-$2/bale. Moore Than Feed charged us $10.99 last week. That's quite a jump in a few short years and has hit the Meadow Haven folks hard. So, I strongly encourage you to help with a few dollars (or a few bales) if at all possible. (Make a Donation on their Website! Every little bit helps!)
Their website is www.meadowhavenrescue.com They have a Facebook page, 'like' them & stay up-to-date on their horses. It's raining today, so I'm hoping that continues and hay prices will decline this season. Until then, these horses who have already survived starvation, abuse & neglect need your support NOW. Please join me in helping them!"
