Hello i'm Andy
I have tried to write a description for my cause, but found a poem easier tell the story. I hope you understand how important this fundraiser is to me, my partner and my two lovely foals.
My name is Andrew Simpson,
i work from 9-5
to feed my little family
and keep my foals alive.
It's very hard to keep them
and work full time as well
my partner is autistic
and right now life is hell!
I'm really, really struggling
to try and make ends meet,
my colts take half my wages
but i won't show defeat.
The reason i am caring
and willing to risk it all,
is because i know somebody out there
will not let me fall.
My colts are 6 and 8 months old,
parted from mother as foals.
Abused and beaten badly
a step from 2 grave holes.
They cant stay on a garden
or an ordinary field,
It needs to be big, with lots of grass
And a fence that is well sealed.
I'm asking for some funding
to purchase a plot of land,
to give my colts the best i can
and a home where they can stand.
Currently the foals are in a rented field, but i can not afford to keep up with the payments. As i am the only one working, which is a low income, i have to start thinking of alternative solutions.
I couldn't bare to see the foals go after all they have been through. My girlfriend would take badly, very badly. Autism leaves an imprint and if the foals go so does the Sophie i know.
I have until June the 28th to get some money together to buy a plot of land not too far from our home. From here we can rotate the foals to manage the grass and, keep our expenses low.
Below are some pictures, i hope you understand our urgency. I will take this time now to say a big thanks for any donations made, you are truly brilliant.
