It is hard to believe how fast this year has gone by. We have been really busy on the farm and time easily gets away from us. I don’t remember the last day off we had. I am proud of work we have done helping horses in need through our Equine Relief Fund. We have helped 16 horses with vet care for major medical needs, castrations, basic needs and rescue. We have worked with other rescue groups which has enabled more horses to be saved. For example, because we were willing to cover the cost of gelding a stallion at an auction, another rescue group was willing to take him. Once through rehab he will be adopted out into a new home, a second chance he otherwise wouldn’t have had. We look forward to continuing these efforts.
We had some tough losses this year on the farm, but those horses enjoyed many happy years here with us. We did everything we could for them to keep them comfortable. They are deeply missed. Their passing, however, makes way for other horses in need to find their way to the farm, and we recently welcomed Cinnamon and Sugar. We hope in time to be able to use them in the grooming program with special needs students.
As I close on this year I want to say how thankful I am for the dedication of our board of directors, all those that help us at the farm and at events, and our loyal supporters! Bruce and I are so grateful for your devotion to the horses and Mylestone’s efforts.
Wishing you a very Happy Holiday Season and blessed New Year,
