The average cost of caring for a horse is approximately $15 per day. That amount is based on the cost of hay, grain plus regularly scheduled veterinary and farrier care. That amount increases significantly when there is serious illness or an injury or when the cost of hay and grain is affected by events beyond our control such as weather conditions, fuel costs and the economy. This amount does NOT reflect any costs associated with facility management such as grounds and building maintenance, repairs, snow removal, fencing and new construction.
We are 100% staffed by volunteers and no salaries are paid.

After his last race in 11/09 as a low-level claimer plans were being made to sell him to racetrack in Puerto Rico. This prompted efforts by several people involved in horse/rescue/rehabilitation to raise the necessary funds($1000) to buy him. On 12/4/09 Karakorum Patriot and fellow Finger Lakes rival Midnight Secret arrived at Old Friends at Cabin Creek Farm.
