When it rains it pours.
We have NO water at our rescue in Nevada. The pump has burned out. The cost to locate the well, (no one has any idea where it actually is), replace the pump and get the water going will be anywhere from $1,900 to $4,000 depending on whether we need to rent an excavator, and how long it takes to actually get water. As for now we will be paying folks to truck it in.
(Luckily our ladies who take care of the rescue while I am not there have made sure the horses are ok up to this point.)
It is past time to order a load of hay before supplies run out and the prices jump even higher. We are looking at a truck load around $6500 for the NV horses. As most everyone knows, there is a critical hay shortage and it is imperative we get what we need for winter now while there is still hay available.
I am on standby for some extremely emaciated mustangs. Their range has zero feed and almost no water. They are supposed to be coming for the next couple months. The pictures I was sent were extremely hard to look at and many of them are literally at death's door. I need to stock up on supplies for the care they will need. At this time I am loading up the trailer with milk, pellets, electrolytes, meds etc. I have no idea how many or exactly when they will call. I was just asked to be ready and on stand by.
Please check out the New Adoption page! Due to technical difficulties, I have been blocked (glitches anyone???). So we now have a new and improved page. I know folks enjoy sharing the horses and their progress with all of you.

(I can't believe I didn't do this years ago, but it is so fun to see the horses, babies and critters that are enjoying and thriving in their new lives.) Due to a facebook glitch, I am actually blocked off the old page, so we started a brand new, improved one.)
