CLOSE TO $4,000 +/- IS NEEDED for emergency repairs to fix the rescue truck. - (We have spent over $1000 so far, and now the other bank of injectors is needing replaced prior to Matt driving one more mile.)
Matt is stuck waiting for the truck to be repaired, and as usual, God sent us an Angel. His name is Larry, and the picture above is his place and the horses are happy and enjoying their "break".
As we deal with the frustrations of old equipment and trying to save lives, I have to once again be grateful. Our angels watched over us again and the truck started having issues about 10 miles from the shop, as opposed to Matt being stuck out in the middle of nowhere with the horses.
I paid for our "rescue truck" personally, with my own funds, but have designated it to the rescue and for rescue use only, pretty much since the rescue started. It has been our "rescue" truck since the very beginning, and we have put well over 100,000 miles on it saving babies, big kids and a few other assorted critters.
While y'all are the reason we have been able to do what we do, without that truck none of this would have happened. Unfortunately it has 200,000 miles + on it now, so we will be needing to raise funds for a new truck in the future. However, everything is checking solid with the exception of needing the new injectors, and I am happy to say that we did get about 100,000 miles on most of them. (We did have to replace a couple of them last year, but they are not the ones that failed like I thought.)
So once again, the horses and the rescue need help. Things are going well here with the horse kids that are here. We have placed 5 of the babies we brought home and three more, possibly four, should be heading to their new homes in the next week or so. The gelding of the 6 stallions has been scheduled and once we get through this, we will continue saving lives and doing what we do.
Thanks to all of you, we have been blessed to be able to save 32 babies, 11 adult wild horses, the Percheron Big Girl, two miniatures, and we are receiving a Jenny this coming week. So because of the love and support our "rescue family" has shown us, we have been able to save all those lives AND help place over 20 wild horse kids in safe and loving homes. So thank you for saving those lives :).
We want to thank everyone for being part of saving all of these lives. It means the whole world to each and every horse that we save, and although we can't save them all, we are grateful for all the lives we do save because of folks like you and your love and support.
