About

Searching for superstar volunteer(s) who have ample horse experience. Equine Specialist at SRoL needs help with basic barn chores 2 days a week. If you enjoy taking care of horses, we invite you to come and help care for a very special small Herd of 5 horses who change and save lives for a living.

Duties for the Herd include:

Feeding, filling hay bags (and bucket for special needs), water buckets, outside water, stall cleaning, sweeping, turn-out/turn-in, sweeping, cleaning manure from dry-lot and/or arena, etc.
5 horses, 5 stalls, 9 buckets, 2 troughs... :)

Greatest need currently in the evenings on either Wednesdays, Fridays and/or Saturdays. Shift is approximately 2 to 3 hours.

For rest of October 2017 (and temperatures/weather depending) into November 2017 the horses are still on night turnout. Shift is from 6pm-9pm (or until finished, which might be earlier). When the horses switch to daytime turnout the shift times will change to start in the morning and go until barn is done (still about 2-3 hours, start time is flexible between 9 and 11am).

*There is also a shorter shift available to bring horses back inside. Currently the horses come in around 830am. During winter (daytime turnout) this shorter shift would be in the afternoon/evening and the horses come in at dusk around 430/530pm. The short shift is best for someone who is very local as it will only take about an hour to complete.

For any high school or college students needing honor society service hours or fulfillment with volunteering - all paperwork will be signed and letter of recommendation provided.

PS: Because of the amazing work these horses do and the miracles they set forth, we are picky about their care. If you are empathetic and a bit OCD this will be a fit. :)
