With every eligible WeatherBeeta blanket purchased from Oct. 2-Nov. 15, 2023 and from Dec. 5, 2023–Jan. 31, 2024, a bale of hay is being donated toward A Home For Every Horse and partnering rescue centers.
‘So much need’
Horse and Hound Rescue Foundation in Guthrie, Oklahoma was one of 102 recent Blankets for Bales recipients. “With the drought in Oklahoma last year, hay was out of sight. Our budget for hay doubled, and in some cases almost tripled,” says the foundation’s Nelda Kettles.
“To have a program to help with purchasing hay was a godsend. It’s a great program, and rescues everywhere appreciate the help. There is so much need out there; any kind of help we can get is immensely appreciated.”
Three ways to help
- Time your winter horse blanket purchase to coincide with eligible program dates (Oct. 2–Nov. 15, 2023 and from Dec. 5, 2023–Jan. 31, 2024).
- Encourage your barn buddies to also purchase eligible WeatherBeeta blankets to help support this worthy cause.
- Inform your favorite equine rescue or aftercare organization about the Blankets for Bales program so they can enter. Grant applications will be made available at AHomeforEveryHorse.com.
“At WeatherBeeta, we are fortunate to employ individuals who prioritize animals and their well-being. Their unwavering commitment to worthy causes like A Home For Every Horse finds a perfect outlet,” says Doug Walker, WeatherBeeta president, North America & EMEA. “As we approach the momentous occasion of WeatherBeeta’s 25th anniversary in the USA in 2024, I can confidently say that our involvement in this sponsorship has been nothing short of extraordinary. We take immense pride in knowing that we have contributed to the comfort of thousands of horses in shelters nationwide.”
Omar Hinojosa, president & CEO at Valley Vet Supply, is just as committed. “Equine rescues and aftercare organizations serve horses in need every day, from horses in neglect cases to rehoming racehorses, and A Home For Every Horse supports their journey from care to rehoming,” he says. “I am proud to share the commitment of our team toward their animals’ care, including efforts such as retraining mustangs, rehabilitating off-track Thoroughbreds and more. I hope you will join us in making a difference with the 2024 Blankets for Bales program.”
