Sun Peaks Stables cut their season short due to the pandemic and, like others in the same position, struggled to make ends meet.

Their anxiety was made worse due to having two pregnant mares and virtually no revenue coming in to feed more mouths, according to a Sun Peaks Tourism press release. That's when they made a quiet request on a local Facebook group and their community came through.

"We'd really like to acknowledge the support we've received from the community and beyond,"  Robert Taylor, Co-owner said in the press release. "A big thanks to Sun Peaks Community Helps for their purchase of $500 worth of hay cubes for the horses as well as to John and crew at Purity Feeds for helping us acquire some necessary equipment for the stables."

The two foals, including a filly and a colt were born mid-June and aptly named "Bonnie" and "Henry".
