Miss Jo’s Rescue Ranch lent all their helping hands last week – taking in over 10 severely malnourished horses from a rescue that was not able to properly care for their animals. Now at Miss Jo’s, these loveable gems are getting ample food, water, veterinary care (including proper worm treatment to get their gut health in check), hoof trimming and more – all basic necessities that hadn’t been done in a long time.
Surprisingly, these horses came from a rescue that had previously saved them from a kill pen, yet found themselves in over their head. It is very troubling, but some groups get overwhelmed by the immense cost of all the care, food and time it takes to keep farm animals healthy and happy. They wait far too long to reach out for assistance, and the animals suffer greatly - sometimes more so than before the group took them into their care. This was the situation, and when Miss Jo was asked to help, her team stepped up, ready to offer these deserving animals a third chance.
Your Funds In Action
We’d like to personally thank you for purchasing our FHF skincare products, because with your purchases, FarmHouse Fresh was able to answer the call for help and contribute to the rescue, veterinary and ferrier care for these ten. And together we'll keep the help flowing! Here’s to you, our fabulous FHF family – it takes a herd!
But Hay! There's More.
With the influx of new horses on the farm, Miss Jo needs constant rounds of HAY and lots of it! Through us, you're helping. But should you feel moved to make a personal donation, please visit her PayPal account to donate – this will help as each bail runs about $60 – a steep price when there’s lots of mouths to feed.
