Arabians In Kansas Needing Assistance
Posted 26 March 2010 - 06:39 PM
Long story short, after lots of conversation with her and several others. I'd like to request the ABH members and members of the Arabian Horse Rehoming Resource (http://www.arabianho...ehomingresource) to agree to the release of funds to assist Bobbie. There's a feed store in Kansas that said I can put an order in for some feed for Bobbie, and send the feed store a check. I told them at this point (for an immediate need) we'd like to put forth $100 in hay/grain. It's not much, but maybe just a bit to feed the horses over the next week while Bobbie tries to sell the horses. Bobbie will run out of hay/grain after tomorrow morning's feeding. I've also got a buyer lined up for the stallion (Journey) at a lesser price of $800 if the buyer can get help on transport costs. The cost to ship the stallion from Kansas to Georgia (where Jennifer is located) is $710. I'd like to ask for our AHRR to pay for that cost (or at least partially pay for it). This will get $800 immediately into Bobbie's pocket, because Jennifer will commit to buying the stallion if she can get transport arranged.
So, can I get a vote of paying the transport company (which I've got 3 quotes now) $710, plus up to $300 total for feed/grain for Bobbie (to keep her afloat a bit longer while she tries to sell the other horses)?
She was going to take Journey to auction to get 'fast cash', and I'm hopeful that we've all talked her out of that.
This is a case of our Arabian community assisting with someone that has fallen on a tough situation and needs a little sustainment.
Votes: YES or NO
Feel free to contact me if you have questions or concerns.
Oh, by the way ... I'm SOOOOO GLAD to see you (Tom) starting up a way of raising funds for rescue/rehoming!!! : )

Been there, done that, got nothing but a few beautiful horses and a mound of debt to show for it.
Never miss an opportunity to spend time with your horse. 35 years go by in the blink of an eye.
