HORSE OF THE MONTH:
R.I.P. our courageous mate
There's many ways that you can volunteer at CHS. Your time, expertise, donations and ability to share what we do with your family, friends, community and the world can make a difference in the lives of these horses that have no where else to go. Through the generosity of many lovely human beings, we've receive donations from five-dollars upward, from school children to retirees and those who are able to give more. Whatever the amount or deed, it all counts.
You can stop by if you live in WA and volunteer to muck stalls, brush the horses, help feed or simply spend quality time with them.
Some people have held a 'Horse High Tea' and raised money for us rather than bet on horse racing.
Got extra tack/gear? Our horses are not ridden or worked, however we do our best to keep them happy and healthy through all seasons and we often need rugs in new or gently worn condition as well as new/gently worn fly veils, hoof picks, rope halters, first aid kits, farrier gear in great condition, etc.
Do you know journalists or want to write a story about us or an individual horse? Contact your local paper, ABC TV or radio or a horse magazine and let them know about us. We're unique and Alan Gent is quite the legend!
If you are a lawyer in the Not for Profit or Charity sector we could use your expertise on a Pro Bono basis!
Our horses need constant farrier, dental and veterinary care. If you're in one of those professions and can donate or reduce your fees and help our animals, we'd love that!
The possibilities are endless and we need your help!
There's no doubt that old Lightening Jack aka 'Beriah' is the horse of the month. This fella gave his all to keep going, arriving at CHS 3 years ago in rough condition. At age 30+ age and doing it tough did him in. He's crossed the Rainbow Bridge now and joined our other horses in Heaven. His friend Omar was his loyal guide and companion who will miss him dearly. Rest In Peace old mate. There's no cure for old age and we take one day at a time.
We could not do this without the many people who have stepped up to help. A lovely woman from Queensland named Pauline Long donated the gear from her dear horse who passed away. It says heaps about this beautiful human who through great loss of their friend, has thought of the horses here at the sanctuary. We cannot thank Pauline enough for her kindness in donating bot knives, rope halters, brushes and a first aid kit- all much needed, so that our horses can benefit in ways that ensure they live a comfortable life here at CHS!
