Equine Outreach is in desperate need of hay, homes for horses and overall donations. Spokesperson Joan Steelhammer says times are really tough right now and that's affecting people who've had horses for most of their lives: "In one case I had a woman who lost her husband and lost her house and had to give up her horse of 12 years. I had an eighty year old man have to give up a horse he had for 30 years; it's really hurtful."  She says just feeding a horse can cost about $200 a month. Right now Smolich Motors is teaming up with the Outreach for the "Horsepower to Horses" Campaign. Each dealership will have a drop off location for people who want to donate their old cars to help fund the program. Equine Outreach serves Central Oregon and helps with horse rescue, rehab, adoption and placement.
