When Horse Haven of Tennessee (HHT) sends out a solicitation letter, they really need help. Recently, HHT received a call about a donkey who had been running at large for over two years. He was in very poor condition. A plan was created, and with corral panels and a vocal mare, volunteers outwitted the jack and had him contained. A halter was embedded in his head, and the buckle had scared his eye, causing the need for extensive surgeries at UT Vet Hospital. Now known as Mr. Jones, he is well enough to recover at HHT. Our assistance will help them in a small way with the $5,000+ bill for Mr. Jones.
Horse Haven of Tennessee is bracing for a rough winter. With the late summer through fall drought, hay production is way down, which means more money is needed to feed their horses. We sent them a $250 donation to buy a few rounds and hopefully ease their burden a little.
This miniature horse is one of three that Horse Haven of Tennessee (HHT) rescued earlier in the year from horrible conditions. All three horses were covered in their own waste and trapped in a dark box stall. Their little hooves were so long and distorted that they no longer resembled horse hooves and had a hard time standing. The miniature horses were oppressed and in pain. This little mini family was desperate. Thankfully, a good Samaritan called HHT in to help. Since then, all three horses have been given proper equine care and are happy and healthy. Our donation to HHT helps them with these types of efforts. HHT and HPAN – what a great team!
