Funding for Winter Hay Reserves

Help Us Guarantee Our Hay for the Coming Fall/Winter Seasons!

We have an opportunity right now to guarantee our round bale supply for the coming winter and to do so at normal (and reasonable) prices for good quality hay.  These prices that are half of what we paid last winter!  AT A MINIMUM, $5,000 RIGHT NOW would allow us to reserve and guarantee our entire winter hay supply with a local supplier right away, while the inventory is still available.

This initial $5,000 does NOT cover our entire cost, but it does partially pay for and reserve our full supply.  We have calculated that approximately $10,000 will cover the full round bale inventory for this winter and into early spring at the current rates.  We would certainly love to be able to cover our entire season's cost with everyone's help.  However, the most important thing for us to do is

get this hay reserved as soon as possible.

As you may or may not know, there was a massive shortage of hay in Georgia last winter due to the drought.  We ended up buying out all our hay suppliers, friends, and neighbors, and then having to get hay trucked in from out of state at DOUBLE the normal price for most of the winter.  Yes, DOUBLE!  Even though we had a few awesome supporters to help us out, this was financially devastating for our organization.

We have a lot of big mouths to feed and we literally go through hundreds of round bales through the winter months.  Now is the time to reserve and/or stock up while supplies are available and costs are low!  

Please consider donating to assist us in helping to make this happen.  Any assistance you can provide in helping us reach this short term goal of $5,000, and longer term goal of $10,000 can eliminate significant stress and financial burden for our organization.

As always, your continued donations and support of our cause are very much appreciated.  Every little bit helps and all donations go directly to support the horses.  Please share with your friends and family about Iron Gait Percherons and our cause.  Thank you again!
