Well, you readers are totally AWESOME!
In just a few hours on Friday, after I made the distress call to help save the last of the remaining horses from the Fallon kill pen, the money was raised in less than 6 hours!!
Not only was the money raised, but the last homes were found for the mare pairs and all of the transportation was arranged.
It was miraculous!
YOU ROCK! All of you. Thank you.
And, just to keep a tally… Debra Hawk and her band of do-gooders have saved 56 orphans, wealings, yearlings, mare pairs and assorted youngsters in a little over 2 weeks. All from the same ranch.
I only have the two receipts for the mare pairs at the moment. The Bucket Fund is also paying for some of the transportation. However, the receipts for the transportation are not in yet so I have not reimbursed the drivers yet. I will post the transportation receipts (approx $1300) as soon as I have an accounting for you all.
*I blocked out the name of the recipient of the mare pair funds because I don’t want anyone to harass the person at the feedlot who made all of this possible. I know the idea of a feedlot person being a good person sounds inconceivable. But, he is very important to this operation…
PICTURES OF SOME OF THEM IN THEIR NEW SAFE HOMES!
Most of the horses were moved today (Saturday). Luckily, some of the new homes took photos and posted them!
THANK YOU ALL!! It warms my heart that we were able to help save many of these babies personally through the BUCKET FUND. You all are terrific! It isn’t just donations, either. It is spreading the word and keeping the faith.
We cannot save them all… but we can do our best and this was really, really good.

Love these pics! Before and after :). Yes, love the #49 duo!
Good to see them safe. The mares and babies #49,53 were my favorites.
Such wonderful news! Thank you for the update! Happy news!
Three cheers for the “feedlot” guy! That’s what we need more of…spies!….who can pull out the good horses and save them…(not that all of them aren’t good! But some might be sick or injured beyond repair. They still deserve a more decent treatment in their final days)
