Our New Year Wish For You

There is a beautiful sunrise here at SASHA Farm today.  It is a cool, crisp morning and the humans have not left the warmth of their barn yet.  I can see them through the holes in their barn, standing with their herd, drinking from a trough small enough to hold with their hooves.  They look through those holes often.  I think humans like to see the light and beauty that shine in.  I do not need holes in my barn to see light and beauty.  I feel light and beauty; that feeling surrounds me.  The light and beauty in my life are my family, my friends, my caretakers, and my home.  I have lived here since I was a calf.  I grew big and strong here.  I grew my horns here.  I do not know fear or pain here.  I only know peace, love, kindness, and compassion.  This is my home.  This is SASHA Farm Animal Sanctuary.

My wish for humans in the new year is that you become more like us animal residents of SASHA Farm.  Experience the calm that being surrounded by light and beauty gives to you.  Realize that animal life, human and non-human, is precious.  Feel the peace and love that we feel.  Share that peace and love with all animal life.  Rejoice daily.   

Your continued support and generosity have allowed the entire SASHA Farm herd, over 250 of us, to feel love, kindness, compassion, and peace every day of the year.  Thank you is all we have to offer so please acceptance our thanks and know that you and your support are meaningful to us. 

With our sincerest gratitude,

Tod

Hay Drive for SASHA Farm Animal Residents

Winter is upon us and we NEED HAY!  This year SASHA Farm Animal Sanctuary went above and beyond for not one, not two, but ELEVEN cows in need.  With the addition of these beautiful souls (revered as reborn human beings in Buddhist cultures) that brings our total number of rescued cows to 34!  While we never know how many animals will need our help each year, this year was a big one.

Did you know one cow eats up to 27 pounds of hay per day?  That’s over 800 pounds a month – for one cow!

With the price of hay this year higher than usual, and the addition of all our new residents, we really need your help in covering hay costs for the winter.  Your contribution to our hay drive will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500.  Any and every amount helps.  Thank you for your support, and for helping all the SASHA residents to have a great holiday season.

Please click HERE to go to the Facebook hay fundraiser page.  Make your donation by clicking the Donate button on the Facebook hay fundraiser page.  Or if you prefer, you can mail a check to SASHA Farm, PO Box 222, Manchester MI 48158, and note that it is for the HAY DRIVE.

If you are not familiar with SASHA Farm, here is our mission statement: The mission of SASHA Farm is to provide a safe and secure environment, lifetime care and medical treatment for unwanted, neglected, misused and abused farmed animals, as well as to foster a better understanding of these animals through education.
