Summer 2014 Newsletter
A Message from Mary
With the long-anticipated arrival of summer, our NEER North horses are making the most of the warmer weather, enjoying the freedom to graze, wander, and kick up their heels. In addition to the daily tasks of mucking and water, there is now a chance to begin tackling a long list of upkeep chores in and around the barn and fields.
Fixing fences, reorganizing storage, and re-digging drainage trenches are just a few of the behind-the-scenes maintenance jobs our volunteers do to keep NEER North running. We appreciate their willingness to pick up a hammer and pitch in on the un-glamorous projects that help us provide a safe and serviceable environment for the equines in our care. We’re especially glad to see a number of new volunteers and the return of younger NEER volunteers who are helping out during summer break from school. Your energy, enthusiasm, and talents are welcome.
In this newsletter, we highlight dental and hoof care, two of the vital, ongoing health services that are supported by donations to NEER North. Our professional partners help us restore and maintain our horses’ health so they can be ready for adoption, usually charging reduced fees. We are grateful for their help and for everything our dedicated volunteers, partners, and donors do to support our mission of rescue, rehabilitation, and finding forever homes for horses in need. We couldn’t do it without you!
