A little insight to our Association for all
December Ledger for Public Information
We would like to share our treasury information so that everyone can understand how we work and how hard it is to continue the commitment to the brumbies.
On Saturday 3rd February we held a committee meeting to discuss how we can improve on the wonderful work we do here at HOOFS2010 into 2018. We have some great ideas and would welcome anyone who can volunteer some time to help us achieve our goals. November and December were very busy months with commitments to horses already in care and taking on new rescues. The added financial strain increased when we took on Copper a foal which had been found abandoned with some injuries. His ongoing care has required vet assistance and bucket loads of foal formula as he continues to grow strong and into a healthy and happy little man.
HOOFS2010 is incorporated and registered with all the appropriate government agencies. This allows us to raise funds in order to support and assist the rescue and rehoming of Brumbies. All members of HOOFS2010 are volunteers and give as much or as little time as they can to bring the brumbies through to rehoming.
OUR ARITUNGA CAMPAIGN
Ari is now on the trek of a lifetime after being fostered to Clemmie Wotherspoon who will be doing the Wildtrack 5300 (https://www.sunshinecoastdaily.com.au/…/solo-5330k…/3284676/) with him and 2 other brumbies. The decision to raise funds to start Ari under saddle was a first for HOOFS2010. It has been a struggle to meet the costs associated with his training and we are still in the process of paying this off, however, it was the right thing to do for this special man. We hope you will continue to support us to meet the outstanding fees which we are still fundraising for of $1500. We will have another auction shortly with funds raised going towards this outstanding account.
HOOFS2010 is located at Berrigan on the property of Lynne Sutton, who very generously donate the grounds and equipment used to the care and rescue of the Brumbies. Lynne is an avid supporter of the Brumbies and personally cover council rates, water expenses, internet and the feed bill when that is in short supply. She is on site each day taking care of the daily hands on care of the horses at the sanctuary. We are lucky enough to have other volunteers who also assist both on and off the sanctuary.
We know we can’t save them all. But as a committee we are committed to doing the very best we can to save brumbies and move them into caring, loving homes that promote the beautiful nature of our Australian heritage the Brumby!
To those who already walk beside us, thank you! To those who are thinking about joining us, please feel free to get in touch. We understand everyone comes with different experiences and knowledge and welcome the diversity everyone can contribute.
