MISFIT ACRES
April 3, 2012

Misfit Acres lives by their wish list..... That no horse would ever be slaughtered again People would treat all animals with kindness People would understand about the dangers horses and all animals face as we integrate them into our lives. I found Misfit Acres when I was working with a group of 5th, 6th, and 7th graders and we were looking into ways we could help out in the community. Misfit Acres welcomed the help with open arms. We have raised money for them, collected recycleables, cleaned barns, painted fences, and visited the horses. Jody and Bruce have dedicated all they have and spent more time and money than they have to give these horses the best lives possible. Even though they do ongoing fund raising they cater to the special needs of each horse which may require a special diet or special vet visits. I will continue to help out Jody and Bruce as best as I can for as long as they need it and you can help them by supporting them. Thank you !!!

MISFIT ACRES
April 11, 2010

I work for the local school district and on several occasions have taken a group of children out to see the horses. It is a valuable experience since many of these kids never get to see a horse that close and are in awe of them when they do. They have always been very welcoming to the children and explain why each horse is there. The children have fed the horses through the fence and loved the experience. I hope to keep returning to Misfit for many years.
