Each Month, HORSE AND MAN has a Drop in the Bucket Fund for a specific equine charity. My theory is that sometimes it is easier to give anonymously in a very small amount than not give at all because one feels embarrassed to give just a little.
Well, many of us feel that way. But, if we put all the drops in one bucket, it makes a difference in some horse’s life. So, that is what this page is about. If you feel moved by our monthly Bucket Fund story but only have a few dollars to spare, we are happy to help it grow bigger.
If the monthly Rescue horse is involved with a Non-Profit 501 (c) 3, all donations will receive a tax-deductible receipt from the Non-Profit. All donations are compiled into one larger donation to be gifted at the end of the month.

END OF SEPTEMBER ’14 BUCKET FUND:
THE MORGAN HILL 50! STARVING. 50 STARVING HORSES.
The good news is that the outcry over Dual Peppy and the other horses left to live among 12 carcasses in Black Forest, Colorado, fueled this fire.
In case you missed it, the Black Forest horses were found living amongst 12 disgustingly deteriorated horse carcasses yet Animal Control said they were not in imminent danger… WELL, the public outcry was immense and pointed. Lo and Behold, last night, all the living horses were removed from that hell hole.
Fast forward to earlier this week. 50 horses were found in various stages of starvation in an open field in Morgan Hill, CA. People were outraged because Animal Control was not able to do anything due to the local Santa Cruz County laws.
BUT, thanks to the good work at ECR (Equine Rescue Center), sailing on the waves of the outcry for the Black Forest horses, these 50 Morgan Hill horses are being rescued TODAY – right now!
If you have any ability to foster and live in the area of Morgan Hill, CA, please contact Monica at ECR:
WHAT WE CAN DO. HELP PAY FOR FOOD AND VET.
I’m sure you understand the massive undertaking to find space, veterinary care, transport, food, shelter and re-feeding pens for 50 horses!
Our dollars will translate into whatever they need to get the job done.
Monica can save these horses if she has financial support. So, let’s say we help her with $250 per horse. That is hay and supplement for 6 weeks per horse (hay in CA is $22/bale). This doesn’t take into account transport, housing, vet care… this is just a drop per horse, but it will make a huge difference.
BUCKET FUND FOR THE MORGAN HILL 50!
50 x $250 = $12,500
This is not the largest Bucket Fund we’ve ever run, but almost… We can get there! And any amount in between is gratefully accepted, for sure! Every little bit of pocket change, leftover Ebay dollars or Starbucks money will to help these starving horses!
The Cavalry is on the Way!
