The wonderful and giving rescue, BHFER, needs our help!!
Over the five years of the Bucket Fund, I have supported BHFER (Beauty’s Haven and Farm Equine Rescue) because they are bursting with integrity – and because they go the extra mile for any equine they think they have the slightest chance of helping.
Do you remember Betsy Rose? (story linked here) She was a skeleton… minutes from death. BHFER came in and comforted her – hoping to make her last moments better than she had known. And low and behold, the girl rallied. It was unbelievable, but she survived! BHFER stood by her the entire time. If she had fight, so did they.
SO MANY OTHER HORSES THEY HAVE HELPED…
I remember the foal with wry mouth who was thrown away (and now lives happily at BHFER). I remember a donkey who was too weak to move and Theresa put him in her van to get him to the vet, I remember an emaciated draft horse, a near death Arab, a very sick, pregnant mini… so many horses Theresa has helped heal or helped cross gently with love, food and warmth.
NOW IT IS OUR TURN TO GIVE BACK. AN UNBELIEVABLE SET of UNFORTUNATE CIRCUMSTANCES. It took a lot for them to ask me for help… they really need it.
Theresa’s husband had a heart attack. He is doing alright, but can no longer function as the ‘Do it all, Mr. Fix it’ around the farm. (Theresa, herself, has a spinal injury that numbs her body from the neck down.)
On top of the heart attack (which is enough…) several formerly adopted horses came back this month – all at once… hay prices are through the roof and school took all of their incredibly helpful volunteers.
Now, BHFER needs to hire help to do everything Bob used to do, pay for medications and care for all of their rescue horses and survive the influx of returned adopted horses. They feel as if the weight of the world is on their shoulders and they need help. You know how this is… things just pile on and it feels totally overwhelming. If one person helps you, then another, then another… the whole world brightens.
WE CAN HELP! Let’s show BHFER that we appreciate all the good they have done for so many for so long! Every dime will add up and mean so much! We can boost them up!
Don’t think any amount is too small. It isn’t! Everything adds up! Miss one Latte and give to BHFER! It will make all the difference! Thank you!!
