Spirit Acres Update

Here at Spirit Acres Farm there is an abundance of love and devotion to our beautiful horses.  Unfortunately
we are experiencing a scarcity of funds to cover the cost of medicine and supplies used to treat and heal horses with problems, some chronic, and help them regain their strength and health. This expense is about $550 monthly. 
Meeting this need is possible with your help.  How grateful we are to be in the GlobalGiving network where this message can reach those who have a genuine interest in coming to the aid of these horses in need. They, in turn, are there for our community and act as healers themselves for so many.

Oldies But Goodies

Here are pictures of some of our dear equine residents at Spirit Acres Farm that are getting up in age.  Like us, age comes with age related health issues.  Pocahontas, a mini horse, will be 35 years old this year.  Along with caring for her aging joints and hooves, she needs medicine to manage Cushing’s disease. Equine Cushing’s disease is one of the most common diseases of horses greater than 15 years of age. One of the symptoms in horses with Cushing's disease can be easily recognized by their coarse, wavy coat that often fails to shed out in the summer.  In the photo, her friend Laura helps her out with a personal grooming session. 

 Black Jack is a retired rodeo horse. He was quite a showman in his day. None of his riders managed to stay on for their 7 second ride.

Our herd of 7 mini’s represents 3 generations.  They are a true family in activity and life.

 All of our horses, regardless of age, need regular dental care.  This is a real challenge to provide proper care for some 40 horses at $150 each. We thank all who share our love and concern and support our work.

Our special equine friend, Spirit

We, here at the farm, would like to say thank you to those who contribute to our medical needs through Global Giving’s Medical Needs for Horses Program.  A special thank you goes out to those who are recurring donors.  We count on them for supplements we must have on hand weekly, such as Thyroid L, Pergolide tablets, anti-inflammatory and needed sedatives.  In addition, we must develop a monthly protocol for one of our special equine friends, Spirit, who is in need of joint support therapy.  Spirit was an abandoned newborn when she came to us.  She has been an inspiration and favorite to many.  Veterinarians are suggesting an injectable prescription for joint support at a cost of 100 a month after the initial dose of $400 to get this special horse on sound legs.  She has brought such joy and humor to the farm, we in turn would like her to feel her best and continue to delight us all.  Here are some photos of Spirit, one of our success stories.
