STRAWBERRY MOUNTAIN MUSTANG HAY STORAGE    Horse Rescue Issues

CROSSPOST FROM THE RO BOARD !

 


I am starting a Fundraising drive for Darla of Strawberry Mountain Mustangs in memory of her beloved Sheldon mustang, Buddy. He was lost suddenly to colic a few days ago, at five years old...

Strawberry Mountain desperately needs proper hay storage to make it through the rainy, wet Oregon winters...right now, Darla's hay is tarped and wrapped, but already some of the hay has deteriorated to the point of being unusable...

Darla has bids on construction of a pole barn for hay storage. The best price she has so far is $9000 for a 36 X 40 foot pole barn.


Here is a quote from Darla on Buddy's thread...


Quote:

I've made the difficult decision to close Strawberry Mountain for a while - at least through the winter. I need some space, and some time. I constantly struggle with hay storage - the bulk of it is stacked and tarped and the whole top layer at least already needs to be thrown away. I don't know if Buddy got some mold, I can't figure out what started it. But I'm going to pour everything I have into building a hay storage area. I've had several quotes - the best being $9000 for a 36 x 40 pole structure with 16 ft eves. They've promised to even donate some more. I'm going to do this for Buddy. And I won't take another horse in until it's done. I have a partial materials list and I'm going to start getting prices soon. If I'm lucky, someone will donate supplies.

Hi there...I'm responding to your question for PEC...yes, please send your pledges to Strawberry Mountain's Paypal address with the notation that its in memory of Buddy for the hay shed...

We have raised $300 in memory of Buddy on the Rescues Only bulletin board as well...we would LOVE to have enough donations in time to get this storage building built before the Oregon rains hit this fall...pulling hay bales for the horses in rain and mud is a very daunting task...

Thanks for thinking of Darla in her time of grief...

Hi. I in no way mean to hijack this truly worthy thread, but could you tell me what (or where) the Rescues Only board is?

Thanks so much...Kathy
