Chiefland Farm Supply is our Purina dealer (352-493-4294). Also used are 30 bags of Stampede Brand Timothy and Alfalfa cubes and 3 bags of Equi-Jewel Rice Bran Pellets per week that come from OBS.

Springtime Joint Health, Cetyl M, Finish line U-7 or Gastrix, Redmond Salt (Green & Growing), Bute powder and MSM are used for a number of the horses.

There has been so much paperwork involved in these cases and on adoptions that we have a great need for printer ink, Brother LC61BK, and stamps.


Please help us find Rosie!

Rosie Missing 23 year old miniature pony mare http://www.netposse.com/view_report.asp?reportid=613
Rosie was adopted out under a contract stating that she could not be given away, loaned, traded or sold and only returned to HPAF but her adopter gave her away. She went through four different homes in a short time in the summer of 2009. She was then sold at auction and purchased by Jack Darling. She was then purchased from Jack Darling in the fall of 2009 by a broker who spoke Spanish. This broker may have sold Rosie in Florida or Puerto Rico. Rosie may have been with another miniature mare named Donna who is liver chestnut with a flaxen mane and tail. Please contact HPAF if you have any leads on Rosie. $1000 reward for her recovery.
