With the prospect of wet weather ahead (hopefully!), Return to Freedom is moving forward with plans to build a new hay cover at the sanctuary, even as we continue to raise the remaining $10,457 needed to finish the project.
When completed, the sturdy metal cover will protect hay for our resident wild horses and burros from the rain while increasing safety and efficiency for sanctuary staff. It will also allow RTF to buy hay when prices are best, stretching valued donor dollars.
Building the cover now will enable us to stock up on quality hay contracts from reputable suppliers before January, when prices historically go up and before inclement weather can cause disruptions in deliveries.
