HELP with Water for Sand Wash Basin

$28,539 of $40,000 goal

Raised by 440 people in 2 months
Thanks to your generous donations Wild Horse Warriors has been able to supply thousands of gallons of water to the wild horses in Sand Wash Basin.
We started hauling water July 5th. Since then the amount of water we are hauling has increased almost daily.  At first we were able to keep up with the demand by having volunteers haul water.  Now we have a water hauling company hauling 3400 gallons a day.
Today we will be buying another tank that will hold 1400 gallons.  We are bringing in a large storage container for the water that will  hold 15,000 gallons of water, which will allow us to fill the two 625 gallons tanks that are on a trailer and we will be able to deliver water on demand to our wild horses in-between the water companies trips.
Each trip is costing us 400.00, so our money is going fast.  Please continue to make donations so we can continue to haul water to our wild horses.

Please help our wild horses survive this drought!

Because of your wonderful support and donations, and Bethell Trucking donating the rental of this 15,000 gallon water storage tank, our wild horses should never be without water.

Bethell is still delivering water everyday at a rate averaging 400 per day. Last week we experienced a rapid increase in water usage and if Bethell had not been available to do an emergency delivery the wild horses would have been a day without water in their tanks.

To avoid this every happening again Bethell suggested they bring us this monster tank to the basin. We will keep it full, and we will do most of the weekend deliveries from this tank, that should save us several hundred dollars over the course of the water hauling.

Today we are buying a new 1400 gallon tank and having it delivered to Lake Draw for use during the reconstruction of the spring.
We have purchased 9 tanks prior to this purchase.
Thank you for your generous donations. We could not have done this without them.

Copper Pond is the last large pond that was available to the Wild Horses of Sand Wash Basin. It is now down to just mud.
If you watch closely you will see that they are not drinking the muddy water, just standing in it.
