DOLAN SPRINGS - Things are turning brighter for C-bar-J HorseHaven Rescue in Dolan Springs. The rescue recently received a $2,500 grant from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and some assistance from a Colorado-based corporation, that wishes to remain anonymous.

Bill and Cyndi Jackson have been running the rescue since 2007. They have rescued and adopted out 50 horses and are currently taking care of 15 horses.

Most of the horses that arrive at the rescue are emaciated, other horses are overweight, and still others are too old or have medical problems that their owners can no longer care for. All of their stories will break your heart.

But even with the generous donations the Jacksons are still struggling. The money from the ASPCA will go a long way in taking care of some of the medical costs, but the horses eat about 80 bags of feed each month, which adds up to a bill of more than a $1,000.

The Jacksons have spent almost all of their money and their savings to rescue horses, giving up a nice home, cars, a boat and more in order to help out a few starving and neglected animals.

The rescue is incorporated in the state and is working on getting its non-profit status from the Internal Revenue Service.

It is also raising funds through a year long series of horse show events at the Castle Rock Bar and Grill, 3743 U.S. 93, Golden Valley. Each rider who attends an event will earn points toward a jackpot grand prize at the end of the series. The more events you attend, the more points you can collect toward the grand prize jackpot.

The events are scheduled for Jan. 28, Feb. 25, March 24, April 21, May 19, June 16, July 21, Aug. 18, Sept. 22 and Oct. 20. Age groups range from "L'il cowpokes" to adults. The cost to enter is $15 for L'il cowpokes, $20 for riders age 11 to 17, and $25 for riders ages 18 and up. Be sure to bring your wallet, because the rescue can only accept cash for the events at this point. The money is due the day of the event.

L'il cowpokes will get a ribbon for every show and those riders who attend at least nine out of the 10 shows will receive a year-end trophy.

There are also first through third place prizes for riders ages 11 to adult, plus trophies at the end of the series for riders who have collected the most points.

Signups for the January through May and September and October shows start at 9:30 a.m. The shows start at 10:30.

Sign ups for the June through August shows start at 4:30 p.m. The shows start at 5:30.

Riders can pre-register for events online at For more information, contact the Jacksons at (928) 767-4355 or Kathy Greenwalt at (928) 897-5800.

in regards to cutting our losses, we are a horse rescue. these horses are here because no one wants them they all have had traumatic experiences and we don't wish to put them back into the same. so we care for them. we have blind ones and we have old ones, but they still deserve a second chance. so we care for them like we are supposed to, regardless of how much it costs. these horses were given to us because no one else will have them. we have adopted out over 35 horses in the 5+ years we have been in service. we have a trainer that has been very successful in preparing our rescues for a new home. we will adopt out more. do you wish to adopt one? call us and we will help. thank you

Right now $20 a bale in Kingman $18 out at the feed store in Golden Valley. I think Wakimotos is 18 also in Fort Mohave they said all the hay is bought out from overseas which is ridiculous and the prices aren't going to go down. Texas also has a shortage due to the drought. The ranchers all over are selling their stock off little by little due to the price of hay thats why the meat prices are skyrocketing at the stores!
I hate to say it but the days of owning livestock is going away I have 6 horses and its costing me $240 a week when last year it was $60 and per month thats $760 a month this year and last was $240 this doesn't include oats, shots, and annual vet checks I will be paying over $10,000 this year for them depending on the price of feed!
These people need to cut their loses give those horses to people who can afford to take care of them times are way to tough right now to be taking on more of these horses and there seems to be no end in sight for the hay prices to ever go down!!

Do a search "Costs less to ship hay to China than to California dairies" and see what comes up. Also note, every acre of hay in Wyoming was shipped to China last year. Then you'll understand why we're all paying these ridiculous prices for hay. Oh, and the USDA made this all possible by using tax dollars to set up programs at dairies in China showing that their cows give more milk when eating US alfalfa - back in 2004.

@ Donnae Ellis

Are you serious? $18 a bale? OMG when I grew up $.50-75 was considered expensive.

Could I suggest that all the people that need it contract for a truckload and split it up? Has that been explored? Hay can be salted if damp and tarped and last for months.

$18 a bale.....crazy!

Hay is $17.99 a bale now! That $2,500 is not going to go very far!
