ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX-DEDUCTIBLE.
Each Month, HORSE AND MAN has a Drop in the Bucket Fund for a specific equine charity. My theory is that sometimes it is easier to give anonymously in a very small amount than not give at all because one feels embarrassed to give just a little.
Well, many of us feel that way. But, if we put all the drops in one bucket, it makes a difference in some horse’s life. So, that is what this page is about. If you feel moved by our monthly Bucket Fund story but only have a few dollars to spare, we are happy to help it grow bigger.
All donations are compiled into one larger donation to be gifted at the end of the month.
Horse & Man, Inc is a Non-Profit 501 (c) 3 corporation so all donations are tax-deductible. Please save your Pay Pal receipt for your records.

NOVEMBER 2015 BUCKET FUND:
THE SURVIVORS OF PEACEABLE FARMS!
It is unthinkable when humans hide behind an Animal Rescue Charity in order to steal all of the donations and make 81 innocent horses – the same horses used to garner the donations – suffer horribly.
Anne Shumate Goland is presently behind bars after being arrested on animal cruelty charges. Her 501 (c) 3 charitable non-profit, Peaceable Farms, garnered over a million dollars in 2013. But last month after receiving many complaints, Sheriffs entered the property and found beyond deplorable conditions including 6 dead horses, a dead donkey, 86 emaciated horses, plus several deceased dogs, cats and chickens. It was determined that 5 horses needed to be euthanize on site and 5 more have been euthanized after being rescued. In total, Sheriffs removed 81 horses, 28 cats and 7 dogs.
DEAD HORSES IN STALLS AND ON THE GROUNDS, INJURED/STARVED HORSES …HORRENDOUS CONDITIONS FOR THE RESCUERS.
I’m not showing you the really bad photos… so you can imagine the deplorable and sickening conditions for the rescuers.
LET’S HELP FEED AND CARE FOR THE HORSES WHO WERE RESCUED FROM THESE DEPLORABLE CONDITIONS!
Any amount Dropped in the Bucket will help this immense undertaking! Would you like a Holiday Donation Gift Receipt which states “A donation was made in your name to help the Virginia 81” to give as a gift this holiday season? Simply email me!
All donations are 100% tax deductible!
THE HORSES WHO WERE PURPOSEFULLY STARVED SO THEIR OWNER COULD LIVE THE HIGH LIFE ON THEIR DONATIONS.
From a news article:
Peaceable’s expenses in 2013 for the horse rescue were $1,190,840. The rescue brought in $1,127,823, according to the Form 990, filed in November 2014. Veterinarian fees are listed at $205,138, supplies like hay, grain, and shavings totaled $410,301, boarding fees were $123,700, contract labor was $167,026, and other expenses were $219,320. That category includes the farrier and horse dentist, tack and supplies, horse hauling, supplies and expenses, utilities, barn equipment expenses, maintenance and cleaning.
Another article from Channel 6 news in Orange, VA:
“What I saw was one of the most horrendous sights I’ve ever seen in 28 years of law enforcement,” said Orange County Sheriff Mark Amos. “We found six dead horses, one dead donkey, many dogs, cats, and chickens.”
Now let’s help the poor horses who suffered from her greed.
81 REMAINING HORSES ARE BEING TREATED, REHABBED AND FED… 5 RESCUES ARE HELPING – AN IMMENSE AND EXPENSIVE UNDERTAKING.
The greed is contemptible. Can you imagine living on this farm, among all these suffering animals and doing NOTHING?!
But, 5 wonderful and ethical Rescues have stepped up to help: Travelers’ Rest Equine Elders, Hope’s Legacy Equine Rescue, Central Virginia Horse Rescue, Gentle Giants DraftHorse Rescue and the private rescue/farm New Beginnings Horse Rescue.
LET’S HELP THESE HORSES SURVIVE FOR REAL THIS TIME! (Holiday gift donation certificates available – just email me!)
All donations are 100% tax deductible!
Let’s give these horses back what was rightfully theirs! Starbucks money? Friday night out money? These rescues are working very, very hard to help these poor horses.
