2019 Hay Drive
It is that time of
the year once again, time to start the MHWF 2019 Hay Drive.
Our most important
goal this year and every year is to reach our Hay Drive goal. This year there is
some added worry, the cost of hay. If you have horses, then you probably already
know what happened to the price of hay this year. With many people paying
between $75 - $120 per round bale, we luckily have built up a relationship with
some of the local people who are showing us a little mercy this year. While we
will have to pay quite a bit more than last year, we are not being asked to pay
some of the crazy prices we are seeing online and what some of our friends and
adopters are being forced to pay. The number for our goal seems pretty scary,
but we must whittle away at it and keep pushing forward until that goal is
reached. It has been a few years, but we have reached that goal in the past. All
we can do is ask and keep working toward the goal. The horses must eat and as
much as we detest having to ask for help for hay every year, it is part of the
job and a part we must take on with all the vigor we can muster, to meet our
goal and feed the horses.
Hitting our goal
this year is going to be tough, since the number for our goal is a bigger number
than last year, but it is what it is and getting it down to where it is was no
With all that being
said, you, our supporters, have never let us down and in fact, the last couple
of years, you have come through in a really big way and have taken care of the
hay Drive in record time. This year has a feeling that is even more urgent than
in past years and all we can do is be up front and honest about it and hope that
our supporters are there once again to help us and the horses out.
