Sender: Kristen Velin Near Austin Texas

Hi, I'm not sure if you can help me or not. I've been watching the news footage of Katrina and I can’t help but wonder what if that happened where I live what would I do with my horses? I would like to offer my farm's pastures for anyone that needs a safe place to keep there horses. We have 17 acres of seeded pasture, with a barn and safe fence around the entire property. We are minutes from a vet and we live on site so we could offer a safe place for horses that don’t have anywhere to go. I know that I would really appreciate a nice place to keep my babies. I am outside of Austin Texas. I know that many people have come to Austin for refuge and I just thought we might be able to help fellow horse owners.

Here is my information. we can take probably about 5 horses but if there is more need than we might be able to work something out. We could also take some small animals or small livestock. Again we are located outside of Austin and there are hotels about 15 minutes away.

Thank you,

Kristen Velin

We have room for four to five horses; one stallion or mare w/foal; and three geldings. The stallion or mare w/foal would have a 12x18 stall with access to a lush two acre paddock; one gelding could have a 12x16 stall; and the other two geldings would be on a lush eight acre pasture. All pastures have plenty of shade. We are two miles from a well stocked feed store and twelve miles from the University of Georgia School of Vet Medicine.

We require current negative Coggins reports, current vaccinations, and current health records. We have space for two caregivers. Horses daily care, feed, hay, shavings, and medical expenses would have to be covered by the horses' owners.

We are located between Madison and Athens, Georgia in the community of Farmington, with easy access from Interstate 20.

We live south of Houston and could take a couple of horses in. They would not have a stall but would have pasture and great care.

Our address is below. We live in Brazoria which is about 45 miles south of Houston. Our home number is 979-798-0609. Our cell is also below. We have a round pen and a 3 acre pasture with pond and lots of trees for shade.. We have a 3 horse trailer to haul if needed. Do you still need hay? If so where?
