Before another big ball drops in Times Square and 2018 is in the memory book, everyone working on behalf of the horses here extends sincere thanks to all of you who have made a difference in the lives of Maine’s abused and neglected horses.
From corporate days of service to weekly volunteers, from donations made by 4-H clubs to employer matches, and all the gifts and participation in between, your support has made the difference.
Without you, it simply wouldn’t have been possible to save the horses; horses being rehabilitated from abuse and neglect; horses who have suffered at the hands of humans. Horses like Dusty and Oakley.
When Dusty and Oakley arrived at the Society in late August – having been severely neglected by their owner – they were extremely underweight, had long, broken hooves, were infested with lice, and were bloated from the parasites living in their empty guts. It was a crime.
Your contributions helped bring them back to good health. Just four months later, with quality care, plenty of nutritional feed, and lots of love, they have made remarkable progress. Sweet-tempered and grateful for their rescue, these gorgeous geldings are starting to show their real stuff. And it is good stuff!
As Charles Dickens wrote in the opening passage of A Tale of Two Cities, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” For Dusty and Oakley, 2018 was both. Won’t you please help make 2019 the very best of times for these great guys and for all the horses receiving care at the Society?
We invite you to visit the farm whenever possible. Come and see how your gifts are being used. Give Dusty, Oakley, and all the horses in the barns the chance to thank you for your kindness.
Here’s to a memorable 2018 and a peaceful and prosperous 2019 for all!
There’s still time to make holiday magic happen for the horses being rehabilitated at the MSSPA and awaiting their right homes.
