Caring for the Horses
COVID-19 provincially mandated lockdowns have affected many small businesses and not for profit organizations like ours. If you are in a position to give, you can help in the following ways as we ride out these closures.
We have a credit account in place at both the Minden Mercantile & Feed, and Pet Tyme Animal Krackers, for donations of grain, bedding and farm supplies.
You can also donate an item to our online auction platform.
The “hay fund” is a wonderful movement growing in our community where people are buying bales of hay for the horses in lieu of birthday gifts. $6.75 a bale (the horses eat 4 bales a day). We love this idea!
Your support is greatly appreciated.
Moxie Moose Finds a Tail
This book is dedicated to all the children of Walkabout Farm, who have inspired me with their moxie“. – Jennifer Semach.
