Chasing 1000

Here is a strange request.  'Like' us on facebook!  www.facebook.com/pages/Bertell-Farms-NFP  We are 18 likes away from 1000 and we would like to be there by years end.  Following us on Facebook will keep you current with weekly updates on all of the animals at the rescue.

Phoenix was the subject of our last project report.  Not only is he now at his goal weight, but he is also a love.  We ride him on a regular basis and have decided he will stay as an ambassador to showcase what rescues and donations can do for the animals.

Then enter Ginger Spice.  She was nearly as emaciated as Phoenix was but she did retain some muscle mass.  Her rehabilitation has been a lot faster and we look forward to statrting ehr training in the spring.

We wish you all a very happy holiday season and ask you to remember your favorite charity at this giving time of year.  I know it will be greatly appreciated!

Status Quo heading into winter is good news!

With the uncertainty surrounding the severity of the upcoming winter, we are busy making preparations.  From heated water bowls and water tank heaters to insulation and horse blankets, we are making our lists and gradually checking them off as we get them done.  We have purchased fifty 800 pound bales of hay and stored them in the hay barn for winter feeding.  We also put up two hundred 60 pound bales of hay in the hay lofts.  There is hay everywhere!

Next we will be filling twenty 5 gallon covered buckets with waater for emergency use during the winter months.  Even if the hoses freeze, the horses need to drink.  We have found that this is the best way for us to have access to water for the horses, dogs, chickens, cats, and goats.  They are stored in the workshop which is heated to keep our barn cats toasty, warm, and happy!  The goat, by the way, also walks through the dog door to hang out in the workshop!  Lazy goat.

All in all, I think we are on the right track.  We are stocked up with winter gloves and thermal socks as well!  What we would like to ask you for is help with the grain and supplements to provide for the horses during the winter.  These represent a good amount of our food budget and must purchase them on an ongoing basis.  Please consider a donation to help cover the cost of grain.  You may even wish to contact us in order to sponsor an animal for the winter.

We hope you have a wonderful fall and winter season.

This is what it is all about. Meet Phoenix.

Our newest rescue horse

Happy spring to you all.  We hope to provide exactly that to the neglected horse Phoenix that came to us just over one week ago.  I don't need to say much in addition to the photo of him on arrival and the news story that aired about him.  He is really the heart and soul of horse rescue.  So much mystery surrounds horses that many people feel they could not possibly help them.  They can and so can you.  If you see any neglected animal, please, please report it.  So many people just like me and organizations just like Bertell Farms, NFP are out there advocating for animals.  We cannot do it without you.

It takes a village!

Thank you,

Lora
