A little history, In 2017 we started Hope's Legacy Equine Emergency Food Fund after the starvation deaths of 2 local horses. Hope was only 5 years old yet was so thin she looked like she was in her 30's.
Through donations from local businesses, donors and this year a grant from the Doris Day Animal Foundation we have assisted 219 equines (and a few goats/piglets) from 45 families and two large groups of horses for a total of $9,857.13 since January of 2017.
A small portion of those funds were used to assist 3 equines whose health required humane euthanasia and the families wanted to do the right thing but needed financial assistance. In an effort to be sure those equines didn't suffer a day longer than necessary we assisted with limited funds.
Rimson, Buddie and all the horses, donkeys and minis at the rescue thank everyone who has donated so we can help local equines in need especially the Doris Day Animal Foundation who supported our efforts with a $10,000 grant.
HUGE thank you!
Please let us know if we can be of assistance.

Before we talk about Blue, our newest rescue, we want to give everyone an update on the fundraising effort on GivingTuesday (November 30, 2021). We had a matching grant from The Maverick Fund of the Jewish Community Foundation of San Diego in the amount of $5000!!!
THE GOOD NEWS IS WE MATCHED THAT IN DONATIONS....if fact we exceeded it. With the checks deposited today our total funds raised is $8,974, add the $5000 for a total of $13,974. Rimson & Buddie say THANK YOU.
Our goal was to match the grant so we could purchase a Bemer Horse Kit. It provides electromagnetic therapy to help increase blood flow, bringing oxygen and nutrients to the tissues, muscles and help promote healing or pain reduction for many, many ailments our equines have and you helped us reach that goal.
We now have two horses in our refeeding program and hopefully they will gain weight at the same speed. King is in the near stall and Blue behind. They get along well which is a true blessing.
King is getting 18 pounds of Purina Equine Senior feed a day and we are increasing Blue's senior feed daily till he gets that much also. They both get alfalfa which King can only eat the flowery part, his teeth cannot chew the stems. We will be doing King's teeth tomorrow, Friday, and Blue's in a few weeks after he has settled in and has put on a little weight.
King has gained almost 200 pounds since arriving on 10-26-21 and is doing so much better. This weight is so needed with winter weather here.
