It's 2020! Can you believe it?! We have been so busy over the holiday season that I'm just getting to the updates. We hope everyone had a great holiday and got to make wonderful memories with family and friends! 

McConathy Farm supports our veterans by participating in events throughout the year. This year, we were privileged to be able to participate in three events; the Veteran's 5K, Veteran's Parade in Lexington, and Wreaths Across America at Camp Nelson. We are so thankful to our men and women in uniform and all they give to protect our country. Here are some photos from our events!

GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME AND AT EASTER TIME WE ARE SO THANKFUL AND EMOTIONAL WE WANT TO ANNOUNCE THE OPENING OF OUR NEW RESCUE FARM AT 5235 Athens Boonesboro Road, Lexington, KY 40509 !!!! We have been so overwhelmed by God's grace and the gift of this grant we haven't even been able to explain it to you folks!!!!

There is a long wonderful story explaining the many Godincidences and details from February until now but long story short for here is that someone granted us the money to purchase this farm for the rescue to continue on and operate forever!!! My personal dream and lifelong goal was to save animals long after David and I am gone. We didn't even apply for a grant!!!

We have moved into the rescue farm and off of our Grimes Mill location which we were so thankful and happy to have met and leased from Thomas Kindler and his family.

This rescue farm is 22 acres and has pastures and barns and a beautiful home for us to live in. We will be moving rescues in as we get the fencing replaced and repaired!!!

Thank you to everyone who prayed for us knowing that we were under pressure and stress but not knowing why. Thank you to our workers and volunteers who have kept this quiet! Thank you to our grantor who wishes to remain anonymous. Thank you angels and God for intervening along the way and moving all the obstacles out of the way.

We will have a grand opening eventually but not sure when. Moving is a slow process especially when it is from farm to farm!

If you want to know more details I'm happy to share my testimony!!! You won't believe how all this came about!

Happy Easter everyone and God is good -- all the time -- and he is listening to our prayers!

Also, welcome to Church at Athens for Easter services! Come as you are. You are worthy, you are welcome and you matter!

Update on the two humane society rescues:

Our mission is to re-home and rehabilitate horses in Kentucky.  Our team is composed of dedicated horse and animal lovers and we would love for you to join us. We understand that life changes so we work hard with owners to provide a peaceful transfer and guarantee that their animals will have a loving home for years to come. 

     We cannot do this without your help. As you go through our site, there are multiple ways you can help ensure that every horse has a home. Please consider: donating money or horse supplies (email us for a list of needs); adopting, dedicated donations, or fostering one of our lovely equines, or volunteering your time at our farm in Lexington, KY. If you can't do any of those things, please like us on Facebook and share our story with family and friends. We need your help to guarantee these majestic creatures loving homes!

A WORD ABOUT DONATIONS:   Without your help and donations, the Rescue Team could not continue to operate. We need your help to get these horses up-to-date on shots and medications, as well as farrier and dental care. Some of these horses are neglected and starving for food and attention. 

     Every penny helps when it comes to donations and we are always extremely thankful for any contribution. Volunteers are priceless as well as loving foster families. We can use help of all experience levels at different times. Call today to join our team. (859) 983-8316
