Winter is Coming - It's Started!
It's started ... the first round bales of the season are in! We still owe $10,000 to pay off the round bales, which will keep the GSH horses fed through our snowy and bitter cold winter until next May!
#ThankfulThursday - Water
The staff at GSH want to take a moment each Thursday to thank our supporters for all their help throughout the year.
This Thursday we want to recognize everyone who helped us fundraise to put in automatic, heated waterers at our new location for the horses. In our winters, heated waters are a necessity, and water is life. After a very wet summer, our trenchers are finally here and laying lines to get them installed!
Another of our seniors decided it was time to move on to the herd in the sky tonight. Twenty-five year old Dudley was found, gone, in the shelter at evening checks tonight. He showed no signs of struggle or pain, just simply laid down and died.
Belle is one month old!
Baby Belle is one month old today! Both Dixie and Belle are doing well. Belle is growing like a weed and Dixie is staying at a good weight.
