What's next?  

Automatic Waterers.  Estimated cost is $5,500.00.  On average we spend over $3,000 a year on wasted water that gets dumped to clean tanks weekly and electricity for the tank heaters.  Automatic waterers do not need to be cleaned weekly and do not require any electricity.  This will also allow the volunteers to spend more time fulfilling our mission rather than cleaning and filling water tanks.

Perimeter fence.  Estimated cost $8,000.00.  We have designed a perimeter fence which will allow us to have multiple pastures.  The horses can be turned out for exercise and some good fresh pasture hay.

Please partner with us by making a 100% tax deductible donation.  We appreciate all your support.
