JOE AT THOROUGHBRED FRIENDS NEEDS HELP   Horse Rescue Issues

CALLING ALL FOBs - remember Joe at Thoroughbred Friends and how we followed his daily blog? We were so entertained by his heartwarming and humorous stories. Our own Lynne Brown went to visit him several times, taking him cookies! Please see below post and donate to help Joe with his water problem if you can.
*************************************************************
Emergency situation in Woodland, CA
Joe Shelton with TB FRIENDS has done rescue for over 20 years. He has been mostly off-line the last 10 years as Rescue ran him into the ground as it does many. During this time he’s continued to feed and support dozens of horses with almost no outside help.
Last month Joe turned 70 and at the same time his well went dry! This is happening all over areas like his where there are thousands of trees and nut orchards being planted. These orchards are sucking all the water from all the neighboring homes and ranches. He had to put in an expensive tank just to hold water which he’s having to bring in almost daily. This is EXPENSIVE!!
He did NOT ask me to post this. But he still has nearly 30 rescued horses to support that are all over 20 years old and pretty difficult to adopt out.
I have known Joe nearly 30 years. He doesn’t have the money to drill a new well.. and ??even if he gets it, it will likely be 6 months before they can do it with SO many wells going dry!
Many of you on here followed his blog for probably 10 years. Can you please help if you can? If not, please share!
Please PayPal his sidekick Jennie at
and let her know it’s for Joe. He doesn’t even have PayPal anymore and Jennie will get it to him IMMEDIATELY.
Thank you <img class=
