We consider ourselves and our program to be very blessed. We have great handlers and well trained miniature therapy horses. We continue to increase the number of visits we do each year, we are booked for all of 2017 and part of 2018 and we continue to grow. We receive more request to make visits to care centers, schools, etc. than we can attend. A few months ago, an anonymous donor, who is interested in seeing our program expand to help more children, gave us a very generous donation. We knew that in order to be able to make more visits another team would need to be in place and that we needed a means of transportation for that team as well. We made a decision to be very wise with the money donated and to use it as well as possible. To achieve this goal, Seven Oaks Farm was able to hire Sarah, our intern, as a full time handler. We also were able to locate a used van with the help of Liberty Ford. We purchased a used Ford Transit. We are now able to begin scheduling our new team that will be dedicated to serving the children in our community and also those in hospice care. We still need your help to continue with all the visits we already make to over 60 senior care facilities. While we are especially grateful for this donation, we still need your help to continue all the usual day to day care of the horses and to keep all our teams on the road. Our goal is still the same, to serve others, bring joy and offer hope. You are a very important part of helping us to achieve this goal and we need you. We need all the time you volunteer, we need your encouragement and when you can, we need your financial help as well. We know that with your generous support we have a bright future ahead of bringing joy to thousands in our community.
