I was on the farm a decade ago when the first trailer pulled in and brought Bart, Bea, Benny and Bingo to their forever home after being rescued from certain death from a farm that would have sold them for the meat trade in other countries.
Each of these horses and countless other animals found love and happiness and even jobs as therapy helpers on the farm.
But after a streak of bad luck, the farm is now in trouble and needs help.
Friends of Locket’s Meadow and David and Kathleen Schurman who own and put in endless back-breaking hours caring for the rescued animals at Locket’s Meadow have teamed up with the Orange Ale House, 517 Boston Post Road, Orange, for a fundraiser to help keep the non-profit farm running.
The event will take place on Saturday, Oct. 10 from 4-8 p.m. and will include live bands and raffles.
Tax deductible donation is $20 per person. Orange Ale House will donate Pizza, Pasta and Salad. Cash bar.
Dessert and Raffle Prize Donations would be greatly appreciated.
The bands Bad Mannerz and Just the Cloud, member of Crystalline Cloud with their debuts at the Ale House, have agreed to entertain for the evening.
