Our Mission
Happy Endings
Sponsorship & Adoption


We want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Sorry for the delay in reporting the results of our fundfraiser.. We made $2511.00. With those funds we bought 28 round rolls of hay for the horses. It was a good turnout and a lot of fun. 

We find that we have been remiss in not telling you that we love volunteers! Come out on an open day: Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday from 10 til 2 and see how things work. After that you can come anytime from 8am til 4pm. Bring that horse crazy kid and let them know it's not all about riding! Looking forward to meeting you.

In 2017 we will be celebrating 30 years of saving horses. Right now we have 44 horses to care for and we hope to find homes for some of them soon. Come out and visit them!

I know I'm repeating myself but we need help and donations. Our funds are extremely low. If you can give us a hand we would appreciate it very much.

We are a home for old, unwanted and abused horses. We are a 501(c)(3) non profit organization and have been in continuous operation since incorporating in 1988

  To make sure you can find our mailing address, we're going to post it here:

682 Krause Rd., Pipe Creek, TX 78063. Our email address is: brightedayshors@aol.com. And come out and visit the horses and bring carrots. They love company!

Update: We have had some work done on the sinking stalls. There is still work to do but it's getting there. It has rained many, many days and the horses are knee deep in mud! But the sun is out and we can watch it start to dry

  We want to thank everyone who donated to help the horses. It is greatly appreciated.

  For the next couple of months we will be working to update and make our site better. In the meantime, go to this web site: http://catmcm.wix.com/bdhr to see some of our horses. The site is a temporary site until we get ours right. This site was designed by Catherine McManus, the granddaughter of one of our supporters. Visit and meet some of the horses. See you soon.

We have an opportunity to fill our hay barn at a reasonable price but no funds to do it. If you could help us, it would be most appreciated. Just make a notation on your check: for hay.

If you would like to donate directly to our feed supplier, here is their address and phone number:

Barrel House Feed

11740 Hwy 16 S

Pipe Creek, TX 78063


Here's a great offer for us: For every bag of feed you buy for the Refuge at the Barrel House Jeanne and Leanne Beauxbeannes will match your generosity by buying that many bags for us , up to $1000. Offer ends Jan. 1, 2019.

They have receipts available from us for your tax deduction.

Come out and visit...the horses love visitors! And don't forget to bring treats...carrots and/or apples, cut small, please, as some of our seniors can't eat big chunks.

We also have some young horses up for adoption. They do need training but they are sound and willing to learn. Come take a look. We have many horses looking for their forever home. For the past few months there has been no adoptions, only calls for us to take in horses. This is the first time we have been unable to take needy horses. It breaks our hearts to turn them down. But it takes all of our donations to feed 66 horses. Take a look at our Sponsorship program. It might be the answer to that horse "crazy" kid of yours! Thank you so much for your support.

We appreciate your support and generosity.

We will be posting new stories and pictures very soon, so come back and visit us.

                                We Welcome Visitors! And it's free admission!

                          Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 10am til 2pm.

                                     Don't forget the carrots and/or apples!

We hope to feature stories on this page. We are working hard to learn how to do this stuff, so keep coming back...you never know what you'll get! There will be more photos as soon as I can figure out where they went!
