What's new with the horses?
Local Eagle Scout oversees a refurbishing and revamping project at TIER as part of his Eagle Scout project
Crash, (2nd from right above) a member of Boy Scout Troop 760, of Riverside, CA, oversaw a refurbishing and revamping project at TIER as part of his Eagle Scout project.
Crash planned and managed an improvement project, which included removing the dilapidated siding from our Medical Stalls and replacing it with ¾ inch plywood which was then painted with an all weather paint. He also supervised the work of the Boy Scouts and 3 of their Fathers while they reinforced the old plywood on our 2 stall Feed/Tack room, sanded down the metal and painted it all with a Rust Inhibitor paint. They even hauled off all the old material!
Crash says: “Becoming an Eagle is the highest rank possible and a huge honor and that is what we all strive to be.”
Huge thanks to BSA Troop 760, Crash, his father Big John, Lil’ John, Johnny, Danika (Crash’s sister) Clint, Glenn, Charlie, Chad, Travis & Skyler for their extremely professional job of revamping the TIER Feed & Tack Rooms and completely refurbishing our Medical Stalls. We now have fully functional, sturdy and attractive structures. The Medical Stalls are well shaded and will protect ill horses from the elements. Thank you Crash for such a great job!
TIER Horsin Around
The Horsin Around event was lots of fun! Thanks to DeBarngoddes, Thomas, Mel, Diana, Kristy & Bonnie for all their help for this event. We were especially pleased to see some of our volunteers at the event!
We were able to sell some Used Tack to help raise funds for our next hay purchase. We still have a long way to go - can you help
? We are going into winter and really do need more hay & feed funds.

I cannot think of a more appropriate month to give thanks to each and every one of you for all the amazing work and assistance you have given TIER. I realize that scheduling a TIER Cleanup day on a Friday was not an ideal day for everyone and to those of you who were able to give us some time to assist with the CleanUp we are truly grateful. We could not have gotten though it all without you! All of you hunkered down and pulled through and your dedication and donation of time certainly did not go unnoticed! I hardly recognize the place!
Thanks to your tireless efforts water barrels are so much cleaner, the pens are spick and span, corral panels were replaced (this was a Herculean effort- thanks Mark/Julia/Scot!), and Old Blue (the tractor) is back in service (Scot.....we just can't thank you enough!!). The arena area was landscaped to include a mountain of manure!!!! That was some hard work folks! It is our hope to raise enough funds to have all the manure removed before the rains start. We are researching the most cost effective way to have this accomplished which appears to be renting a huge container/roll off and putting Old Blue into service to move the mountain!
Heartfelt thanks to Cindy H. for organizing this VolunTIER day. Cindy not only worked hard at cleaning the corrals, but she also provided the wonderful lunch spread and sodas. Her Chicken Salad is to die for! Thanks so much Cindy & Scott.
We are hoping to schedule another VolunTIER day in the near future that will not be so labor intensive! HA! We want you to be able to spend a bit more time with horses!
Once again - Thank You.
On behalf of the horses and myself we wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!
Every donation helps. Even the smallest amount will make a difference, especially if you can donate on a regular basis. The costs of maintaining TIER's sanctuary - providing food, care, and basic medical services to the horses of TIER are always there. To be able to step in and save a horse in an emergency situation or handle unexpected vet bills, we also need to have a sufficient emergency fund.

The world is so much better when
you know someone cares. It’s not just TIER that cares, but
people across this nation. The hard work put in by the VolunTIERS
helps each and every TIER resident. Our generous supporters who
not only help by sending much needed monetary donations for feed
and care, vet supplies & supplements, also help by getting
the word out. Because of you horses have found homes! Because
of your caring we are able to help horses that had a not so nice
future. We have been blessed with the presence of each TIER resident
who continues to teach us about this wonderful animal we call
Although there are times when we
struggle because the hay fund is low, vet bills are high, dental
& farrier care need to be done, wormers need to be ordered,
etc., we know that you care about our efforts and the welfare
of the horses. Thank you!!
