I had mentioned in the previous blog that we had the Red Deer College Theatre Production Program out for a volunteer day to work on the seniors' shelter. Thank you to our volunteers Kim and Mette for arranging it (as they are in that class), and thanks to their scenic carpentry instructor Ian, shop supervisor Rick, and students Aaric, Trevor, John and Nevin (and Kim and Mette). The senior's shelter was completed, save for 2 gates that Mike installed the next day. Thank you also to Mike's brother Brian who was out helping that day as well. The horses love their new shelter!
We received several 'donations in memory' over the last couple of months. Thank you to those who chose to memorialize their loved ones in this way.
Thank you to our local feed store located in Sundre, Dougan's Farm and Feed Supply, for donating about 40 bags of Nutrena Vitality horse feed!
Michelle Neaves won a draw through Red Deer Mitsubishi, where the winner gets to select a charity of their choice to receive half the prize money. Thank you Michelle for selecting Bear Valley Rescue as your charity of choice!
In the last 2 weeks we've had several intakes, including the ponies mentioned in the previous blog, save that we ended up with 3 mares and 3 foals, not 4 mares and 2 foals as originally anticipated. Our sincerely appreciation to Four Feet Companion Foundation for their generous grant to assist us in taking in these cute ponies!
I'd like to thank once again Pets for Life Society Alberta for their very generous support in paying our vet bills for October and November.
