Donation and Support
As the pandemic continues Tranquil Acres has remained closed to our clients and has been now for over 30 days. We are deeply saddened that there has been no Canadian government funding allocated to small incorporations like Tranquil Acres. The Tranquil Acres herd work hard and pay taxes every time they work, now they have been unemployed for these past 30 days. We continue to reach out to our local government in requesting help and still nothing.
Many of you have been asking how can we help. We ask you if you are willing to help to reach out to your local government representatives. Bring to their attention the large gap in government subsidies and funding for those small businesses who still do not qualify.
In the past years, the Tranquil Acres herd has helped over 300 clients with varying mental health struggles from ages as young as 3 years old to 70. The horses at Tranquil Acres continue to have the top notch care. They require 5 hay-meals and 2 grain meals a day, fresh water, clean beaded stalls to sleep in, clean paddocks to roam around in the day, trimmed hooves/horse shoes every 6 weeks, and any medications they require to be in the best health. This comes along with a large price tag without even looking at the cost of hydro, mortgage, property taxes, insurance, machinery to maintain everything.
Breaking down the cost to care for each horse, this may give you an idea:
One horse eats about 1 square bale a day at $6 each bale
Horses eat about $20 of grain per day
Each horse uses about $3 of shavings (stall bedding) per day
Along with $500 farrier cost every 6 weeks to keep their hooves in tip top shape.
We at Tranquil Acres are truly and deeply appreciative of all the support you have all given us throughout this difficult time. It means a lot to us to know you have us all in your hearts and on your minds. Many have asked how to or offered to help financially with the care of our horse herd of 9. If you are wanting to assist us this way, we are able to accept this support via e-transfers to or at this link https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=PUDSMF76V4HGA
Please know that anything helps. Be loud with your government representatives and officials so they know support needs to be given and highlight the gap in the current subsidies and support being provided by the Canadian government.
Ryan and Kyle continue to keep the Tranquil Acres herd in great loving health and maintaining the grounds to see all our valued clients in the very near future. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you.
Our supporters, please support them!
