Chase City, VA: Blue Horse Equine Retirement and Rescue Center needs your help

This wonderful and inspiring rescue has done so much good.  Rabiah Seminole, the founder and director and the heart and sole of this rescue is reaching out for donations and/or ideas to continue the good works they do. Please take a moment to read her letter and visit their website.  There is a video worth a thousand words.

“I am writing this because I am afraid. Afraid that all the work here may be coming to an end. We are struggling and need help.

We have taken in horses and dogs that all came with a story. Every story was pretty much the same.  ...“if you will take my beloved companion, I will send a donation every month to help, or I will come and volunteer , or I will help to raise funds, or I will come and help fix fencing etc.”

There have been few exceptions in those promises. There have been some wonderful people that have lived up to every promise they made. Others have not. Honestly, I did not expect them to. We have been doing this for 15 years and in that time have heard every story in the book about why someone could not continue to keep their companion. Some were very viable. Others, not so much.

The point is, we now DO need your help. Help to provide the care that every single one of these beautiful souls need and deserve. If every person that had promised to help had or would do what they said, things would be ok.

Our feed bill a year for grain alone is $30,000.00 our hay bill is $26,000.00 this is just for horse feed and hay. This does not include farrier fees which is approximately  $150.00 per week and vet bills. Thankfully our dog and cat food is now being donated.

I always hate asking for help and have done so only on a few occasions. We do not have the funds to do commercials or anything that cost money. We use every penny to support the ones here that are depending on us.

So now, I am not just asking for help, I am begging for your help. $5.00 WILL BUY A BALE OF HAY. No amount is to small.  If you would like to help with our feed you may call Spaulding’s and ask for Lonnie at 434-735-8161.

Even as small a thing as saving your Southern States proof of purchase from the tops of feed bags and sending them to us.  Read here about how that helps.

I have set up a page . with my photographs all the proceeds that I receive from selling those will go to Blue Horse. There you can purchase, prints, cards,etc of the images that I have taken around the rescue. I am trying everything I can to continue our work....but I need your help..... “

If you would like to make a donation you may do so by going to our website and use our pay pal account there. Or you can send a check to:
