Uniting local actions
Our founder (Helen) is from the region of Murcia in Spain and she has been going to the Rancho since she was a child. Her family has been brought up there and she has donated her time and energy to manage the Rancho’s Facebook page for the past 7 years.
When the Covid19 pandemic hit, Nicole (the owner) and her twin daughters Lily and Natali, who manage the Rancho, soon realised that they would have problems to feed and care for the horses, as all income dried up due to lockdown and quarantine restrictions.
It seemed like a logical project for Good For My Planet to raise funds for food and shelter for the horses. Just imagine if there was no one to save abandoned horses, many would die, tied to a post in a field under the Spanish sun. The Rancho de la Fuente does its part to give these horses a dignified retirement, with food and a place to stay, loved and cared for till the end of their days. Sadly there is no government aid and the Rancho depended on income from its services and activities, all of which have been stopped by the Covid19 pandemic.
Thank you for your support!
This horse, Cabanon, was rescued by Rancho de la Fuente in 2014. It is hard to believe that this is the same horse! He is beautifully fit horse and living happily in Spain.
