Mystic Farm Rescue Update and Banquet Info
All is going well with the “herd”. Flutterby has her cast/splint off and is loving her freedom in the pen with the twins. It won’t be too long before they can either join back up with the others or, possibly, be soft released right from their area up by the barn. I want to give the twins a bit more growth and make certain Flutterby’s leg is fully healed.
As for the others, they are close to “soft release date”. Mid to late September the gates will be opened and they will be encouraged to strike out on their own. All are doing well on the “red cap” feeding plan after the weird experience this year with hair loss from the usual replacement formula. The few that were affected are fat and healthy…just need to grow that hair back!
The banquet (Stillwater Ranch on September 17th) planning is moving right along at full speed. If you need tickets, PLEASE contact me (208 241-7081) or Jan (208 610 6669) or pick them up at Big R sporting good dept. in Sandpoint or Wholesale Sports in CdA as soon as possible. We need to order/purchase the food from Texas Roadhouse this coming Tuesday, so need the head count as close as possible. We don’t want to be short on food! Donated and purchased items for the auction/raffles are still coming in. In addition to some of the items mentioned in the last update (antler chandelier, original and print paintings, a pie a month for a year, one deer processing cut and wrap, handmade doe skin rife scabbards, MANY dinners at local restaurants, antler wine racks, etc.), we have now added a weekend ski/hotel pkg. in North Idaho, an absolutely amazing mesquite burl end table with turquoise inlay, a Remington Model 870 Express pump shotgun, a Ruger 10/22 Jacaranda Laminate rifle, a beautiful antler lamp, a smoker…and so much more! If you have offered donations and haven’t connected with us to pick them up, please contact Dory or Jan. The banquet should be “moose buckets full of fun”! Please lend your support and join us for a good time, good food, great door/raffle/auction items, and a chance to show your support for the wildlife rescue. Remember, we couldn’t do this without you! BTW: The Country Inn in Sagle is offering a deal for anyone coming to the area for the banquet: stay at the hotel for their already low price, and they will donate $20 a night back to Mystic Farm Wildlife Rescue, Inc.
The attachments are of a recent photo of part of the “herd” drinking their bottles from the bottle rack, and about an eight minute recording of Dory and Janette on “1400 AM Talk” Blue Sky Broadcasting interview about the rescue and the upcoming banquet. Just a heads up…if you have dial up, the interview attachment may be a bit long. I’m scheduled to do another radio interview on Thursday (Sept. 8th) at 9:30 AM on “K102″ FM morning show out of Spokane. Make sure to tune in!
Again, thanks for all of your support, produce and cash/item donations! We are all in this together…”Saving Idaho Wildlife – One Orphan at a Time”.
See you at the banquet!
