I have volunteered for SWFHR for a little over 2 years now. It's kinda of a family affair. My husband and I are usually the ones organizing the food for events and my mom helps out where ever she is needed. Tina and Matt give everything they have to provide for the equines that are in their care and for that we are more than willing to help in any way that we can. SWFHR is truly made up of great people, amazing horses, and a couple cute donkeys! I would recommend that if you ever have time that you stop by and check them out!
