Wildrose Wild Horse Rehoming

I thought I was picking out 4 horses as colt starting projects, but it was clear the situation was far more serious. Mares and stallions were running together, with babies in tow. Some in worse shape than others, determined by pecking order amongst the group.  Someone had been shooting horses in their remote location, and 4 were dead. All remaining horses needed to be off the property.

We did what any horse lover would do; we brought in stock trailers, wrote a check to buy the whole lot and loaded them up. Now comes the tough part. I did not intend to take on 13 horses, especially some very high needs cases, and am humbly asking for your help.

Please help us with the costs of: quality hay and supplements, board, veterinary care and doctoring, gelding the stallions (there are 7), pregnant mare care ( there are 3, possibly 4), hoof care and training and supplies until the horses can be adopted.

These horses are not even halter broke and they're scared of people.

Some are in more serious need than others; there is a blue eyed cremello colt who seems to be deaf. He was most likely a 2016 late-fall birth as the tops of his ears were frozen off. He has several large, deep cuts probably from being caught in barbed wire, so he needs immediate wound care. He has bonded with a buckskin yearling, as his mother was likely one of the horses shot and killed this spring.

Please know that all expenses are being tracked and any contributions will directly benefit these horses.
