Monthly Workday

Our workdays are on the first Saturday of each month and we would love for you to join us. We are working but we have fun too! They run from 9:00 AM to noon and you are welcome to come help for all or part of the time. This is a great opportunity for families to volunteer together!

We are going to be serving pizza for lunch so if you’d sign up here and let us know what kind of pizza you like it will help us to plan. If you have any questions or need assistance please feel free to email us at Volunteer@horsesforhope.org

For safety, you must wear closed shoes! We have some work gloves to loan to people but please bring your own gloves if you have them. You might want to bring sunscreen, bug spray, and a water bottle too. If you are new to Horses for Hope or have not completed the volunteer forms in the past 12 months it helps if fill them out ahead of time and bring them with you. The forms for individuals and families are here.

If you have tools like rakes, shovels, wheelbarrows, weed whackers, chain saws, loppers, limb cutters, hammers, power screwdrivers, drills, handsaws, etc and want to bring them to supplement the ones we have that would be great!

We Couldn’t Do It Without Our Volunteers!

Saturday was another hay delivery day and our fantastic volunteers worked under a Carolina blue sky to get this load put in the hay loft. Do you know horses need to eat 1.5-2% of their body weight in forage a day? All that hay keeps their digestive system working at peak efficiency. The digestive process generates heat and along with their remarkable winter coats keeps them warm even when it’s well below freezing.  During the winter our herd eats 8-10 bales of hay a day!

  

 

 

Check out Pete’s fuzzy wuzzy winter coat! Those warm winter coats aren’t as effective when they are caked with mud. Thanks to our volunteers for grooming Pete so he’s prepared for the cold temperatures.
