We would like you to meet our newest residents Angel, Brute and Walker. Angel and Walker are mules and Brute is a horse of course. One of our Board Members got information about 3 equines that had no place to go and time was running out. The people who cared for these 3 animals have fallen on very hard times and their property was being foreclosed on. Being forced off their property with no where to go, the horse and mules could not go with them. We wanted to help these animals very much and not see them end up in uncertain circumstances. We agreed to take them and SASHA Farm founders, Dorothy Davies and Monte Jackson drove up north to the Gaylord area to pick them up yesterday. Now they are safe at SASHA Farm where they will be loved and cared for. Brute is a sweet horse and has a little bit of sass. Walker and Angel are super gentle and like two peas in a pod. We hope you'll come to one of our events so you can meet them in person and see just how sweet they are.
We're pretty excited about April. It is a great month to go Veg if you are not already. VegFest is coming up on April 13 and Ann Arbor Veg Week starts shortly after. Take the 7-Day Veg Pledge and attend one of the many Ann Arbor Veg Week events. For more information visit their website: http://www.annarborvegweek.org/
We've brought him home but now he needs some sponsors. Sponsorships are a great way to help with the cost of food and vet care for an animal. Sponsor Fargo and then meet him at one of our events. A Barn Buddy Sponsorship is $50 and includes a sponsorship certificate and a picture of Fargo. Sponsor him here: https://secure.acceptiva.com/?cst=f59388
How we get through weeks like this we sometimes don't know. We lost three very dear friends this week. Brave, Feten and Gertie were well loved at SASHA Farm by the staff, volunteers and their fellow horse and goat companions. This loss weighs very heavy on SASHA Farm. Our work will still go on but not without a certain emptiness being felt from this day forward. We now have a horse barn and goat barn that will no longer seem the same. Many of us bonded with these animals weekly and even daily. We looked for their faces when we'd go out each morning and night to feed them and cleanup their barns. They won't be looking up at us and that will feel so strange and that sense of emptiness will loom over us for awhile.
Brave was a former high prize winning race horse that went lame and was surrendered to our sanctuary. Feten was also a former race horse who sustained injuries and was turned over to a rescue only to be turned over a second time to SASHA Farm. Gertie came from an unfortunate circumstance where she was not cared for properly then surrendered to SASHA Farm.
