Found Horse Feathers thru a friend on Facebook in the midst of the Oklahoma tornado disaster in mid 2013; and though I am in California and we have needy programs out here, I have been so impressed with their program I have kept following their progress and making small donations when I can. I believe it was the morning just after the tornado had swept through, and while the rest of the world was still looking blankly around them, Cheri knew time couldn't be wasted. She loaded up her trailer with supplies from the feed store and just started driving down rural roads seeing where she could help; a bag of feed here, water tank there. She organized people within just a few hours to go in with trailers and help get horses to safety. Since then I have watched a completely neglected donkey with hooves looking like elf shoes turn into the most sweet and adorable farm mascot, and most recently a starving bag of bones come in and receive such expert care that you wouldn't know it was the same horse 2 months later. This rescue welcomes volunteers and I wish I could be one of them!

Cheri is so passionate about taking in abused, starved and injured members of the equine family. She has helped numerous horses heal and find forever homes.. She is committed to the health and welfare of the animals that she has rescued. I wish I lived closer so I could help her with the awesome care she gives horses, mules and donkeys.

I first learned of Horse Feathers on a blog I was watching quite a few years a ago. The first thing that impressed me about Cheri(RT) was her committment to the horses under her care. There is no one that works harder for these souls than RT. There are many stories of how she has saved horses from near death and with love and care made them whole again. Her biggest struggle is keeping her organization solvent. She probably could take in more unwanted horses, but it takes a lot of money to take care of them. So she gives the one's in her care the best she can and relies on volunteers and donors to help. Those of us involved with her want her to succeed with her organization and will remain committed to her and the horses at Horse Feathers.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that I have may have made a small difference by helping with brochures and posters to communicate Cheri's efforts with the horses.
