Pumpkins & Ponies Spooktacular Pony Rides

Thank you for visiting our pony ride fundraising page!
Our October pony ride is a lot of fun for children and adults but also a very important one for the rescued horses as it helps provide hay over the winter for them. This year your donations are needed more than ever before. The horses will need around 3000 square bales in a year. During the winter months when no grass is available they will go through 10 – 12 square bales a day. The average cost of hay during the summer is $5.00 a bale. As with anything supply and demand can alter prices and in the winter the cost of hay can go up to $7.00 – $8.00 a bale. That is a big difference when you need to buy hundreds of bales at a time.
Due to less rain this year many local farmers that sell their hay to us were not able to get a great hay crop. This means the rescue will have to look to other states and have a semi load of hay delivered. The rescue has no choice but to buy a semi load or 2 during the winter. Not only will there be the price of the hay most transport companies charge a loading/unloading fee and a transporting charge.
Come have fun and help support the horses!!
