May Barn Cleanup!

We had another very busy and productive Work Day at the MWHR farm this past Saturday. Thank you again to all the wonderful volunteers who came out and helped clean up the pastures, groom horses, and fix fences. As usual, we were too busy to take pics but after all the hard work was done the horses were very happy

Thanks to Horse Authority for Support

MWHR would like to give a very special “THANK YOU” to the owners of Horse Authority for donating blankets to MWHR to sell at our Yard / Tack Sale this Saturday (additional details here). All proceeds from the sale of the blankets go directly towards caring for the mustangs located at our Canton, GA facility. If you live in the the North Georgia area and have horse blankets that need to be cleaned and/or repaired, please check out Horse Authority. These are wonderful people who do an amazing job!

Pony Ride Event @ Little Creek Farm

This past Saturday MWHR participated in the Pony Ride Event at Little Creek Farm in Decatur, GA. Two of our very talented volunteers, Michele Philips and Alba Rosado, spent their day painting faces to raise $ for MWHR. These ladies worked tirelessly for over 4 hours non-stop painting close to 60 kids faces. Their face paintings were beautiful. Needless to say, it was a huge success and we had lots of happy children. Thank you ladies for donating your time and talents to help MWHR!!

 

Volunteer Training Session

On November 27th our MWHR Volunteers participated in a training session to learn more about proper handling of the horses, hoof care, groundwork basics and loading/unloading on the trailer. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the training session and we look forward to doing another more in-depth one in the near future. Huge thank you to Kelly and Lee Bates of Cooper Sandy Farm for letting us use their facility and some of their horses and to Nick Thompson the farrier for making a special appearance. We’d like to give an extra special thank you to Lee Bates for spending the entire afternoon working with our volunteers.
