Post Irma Equine Care on St John VI

$11,000 of $12,000 goal

Raised by 96 people in 11 months
I've lived in St. John for 25 years most of them caring for the local animals. Hurricane Irma then Maria has now made it impossible to care for the 10 horses and various donkeys who call St. John home. I have an effort underway to help us rebuild, but continual care is necessary to meet the expense of feed and rent, and with a $100 a day feed bill this adds up quick! For those who love St. John and call this home or their favorite place in the world to visit they see the unique mix of people, floral and fauna which makes this place so special.

There 's been so many animals in need of help I now have more than in September. The weather has been dry which makes for easier horse keeping, but requires us to purchase water at least once a month. Our latest rescue was spotted several times just outside the corral. Such a pleasure to have her soft and gentle self.
Mimi adopted into the family at nearly 4 weeks old. She took to the bottle with no problem and shows me what she likes to eat.

I am thankful for the dry weather, although now we have to buy water because of no precipitation and not just because we are short on gutters. They are going up slowly, along with new awnings and fences. Good news, one more container of hay is on it's way to feed everyone including our new baby goat additions!
This is me and River who was left behind by the herd at 4 days old.

We are 20 steps closer and about 10 steps back from being back to pre-storm condition. There are still roofs to fix and the fence to secure. We appreciate all who of you have contributed toward the care of these horses and donkeys. They all have to eat and ther's the rent to pay. Thank goodness those from FEMA to my landlords have been accommodating and helpful. Hurrah to everyone who is muddling through this hurricane aftermath.
One of two 20' containers on site we hope to make a sturdy barn out of with a roof between them. Automatic storage!

It's makeover time. With few visitors and limited places to stay we're creating a dude ranch type of vacation, island style. Just ordered some tents to be put on platforms. Participants must be prepared to get dirty and have some fun! Gearing up for this Christmas season, so stay in touch!
Six man tent for 2 or 3 folks with plenty of room to move around .
