|our two sight-impaired horses, Charlie and Gideon|
Our herd currently consists of eight horses; Gemini, Taz, Precious, Ruby, Sissy, Samson, Charlie and Gideon.
Here is why I am writing in detail about this organization. We are currently in the process of buying a new, safe facility for our horses. We were previously boarding our horses at a ranch where they were neglected each and every time we were not around to monitor their care. A few of our horses were badly injured and because we needed to leave in a hurry, some board members of SDYR graciously stepped up and are allowing our horses to stay at their farm temporarily. Our horses have healed up nicely and are doing great, but they need a permanent home.
We have found a beautiful facility in East Grand Forks, MN called the Riverbend. It is fifty fabulous acres of horse paradise and an abandoned restraunt that will be converted into a home for my parents and a few of the volunteers, plus will include a 'hang out' space for participants of Stable Days. My parents are trying to sell their house now to pay for this property but we have hit a major time crunch. The owner of the property needs us to put down $25,000 to close and he needs us to do this is just a few weeks.
I am humbly begging for each of you, readers, to help if you can. If you have $5 or $100 or some wealthy friends, I would ask that you consider donating to this amazing program.
The website stabledays.org is currently under contruction, so their online donating link is not working, but if you are able to donate, or could chat with some people who may be willing, PLEASE email me.
If you feel comfortable with this, you can also mail checks written out to 'Stable Days Youth Ranch' to our program address 504 South 6th Street, Grand Forks, ND 58201.
Please please please please please spread the word and pray about whether or not you would be able to help us financially.
Thank you so much for listening!
