New England winters are long and harsh and we want to make sure that any horse in need of a blanket this winter has access to one. Each year we end up with a plethora of donated blankets in varying sizes (many more than needed for our rescue horses). This year we decided to offer a blanket bank (rain sheets and winter blankets) at no charge to horse owners in need of a little help.
If your horse is in need of a blanket to keep them dry and warm this winter GER wants to help. No qualifications, no hassle and no questions….just a nice warm blanket! All blankets must be picked up at the rescue in West Townshend, VT (we are NOT able to ship blankets). Simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
Your Horses Name
What type of blanket you need (Rain Sheet or a Mid Weight Blanket)
We will email you back to confirm we have a blanket that fits your horses needs and will let you know that your blanket is ready to be picked up!
Let us know what day of the week you plan to pick your blanket up and we will have it outside the front gait of GER (West Townshend, VT) in a bag with your name on it. That way you can pick it up whenever is convenient for you, no need for an appointment.
We will do our best to help all horse owners in need, but blankets are based on availability of what size/weight we have in stock.
Have a blanket to donate? We will gladly accept all clean rain sheets and mid weight blankets in all sizes in good condition with no tears or rips. Simply email email@example.com to arrange a drop off time.
