HELP keep the 14 acre dry pasture used for WILD HORSES!  The landowner wants all the past due money owed paid by November 1st or we will be forced to leave.  We are making regular payments for their monthly board but need help with the past due balance that has built up since 2011. Your TAX-DEDUCTIBLE donations are needed so the rescued wild horses in our outreach program won't lose their pasture and their place of peace and healing after being at-risk of going to slaughter.

Land is so expensive in the SF Bay Area. It's impossible to find another affordable 14 acres for wild horses here. Most landowners don't want "wild" horses on their property either.  Many landowners are cattlemen and they don't seem to like wild horses. . .There is a lot of prejudice against wild mustangs and that is exactly why we need to keep this pasture for the wild ones. They are miserable in stalls and that would be much more expensive also.

We have boarded rescued wild horses at the dry pasture since early 2011, supplementing hay daily and the mustangs have been happy. The landowner has been kind and open-minded to allow us to do outreach  with Blondie, Tibet, Sol and Val at the pasture also.

Besides outreach, we use the dry pasture so wild horses can heal from the trauma of roundups and trauma of losing their families, abusive handling by BLM wranglers and to relax between training periods--so they can just be horses. . . roaming freely on the hillside acreage. 

As a nonprofit organization, made up of volunteers, we have had hard times over the years and fell behind on pasture board payments at times. It's been really hard to pull all the expenses together when the rescued mustangs don't all have sponsors. Please contact us if you would like to sponsor Val, Sol, Blondie or Tibet and be a special part of their lives. Sponsorship will be a big help to prevent this from happening again.

The landowner has been very kind to wait this long for the past-due balance--but now he needs the money.  He has given us a warning to pay or leave so he can board other horses in the pasture.

We are paying their monthly board (we also buy the hay to feed them daily) but as we operate on a shoestring HELP is needed to pay off the past due amount that accrued. The clock is ticking. . .

Protect Mustangs a 100% volunteer nonprofit organization and your donations are TAX-DEDUCTIBLE because we are sponsored by the Andean Tapir Fund, a 501c3 while ours is in the works. 

Thank you for doing what you can do to help the WILD horses keep their pasture home. Your tax-deductible donations will ensure wild horses can stay living in an affordable peaceful dry pasture until we create the much needed sustainable eco-sanctuary.

Many blessings,
Anne

URGENT: Only 3 days left to help the WILD horses keep their Bay Area pasture! The remaining $1,882 needs to be raised by Nov. 1st or we will lose the pasture. Please HELP with a tax-deductible donation today .

Most landowners are prejudice against "wild" horses--fearful they will cause havoc and don't want them on their land or they've been brainwashed by associations that send out pro-slaughter newsletters and think they are undesirables.

After the WY14 are halter-gentled the landowner said he would welcome them to join the other mustangs in the pasture. Please help keep the pasture!

Besides making a tax-deductible donation you can also share this fundraiser http://www.gofundme.com/fujloc on Facebook, Twitter and by email so more people can join in!

You can help the wild horses keep their special haven in the East Bay. Blondie, Tibet, Val, Sol, Lennox and the WY14 are so grateful you care about them and they send their love. Please pray help will come in time.

Many blessings,
Anne

After the rain it gets really muddy out at the pasture. Here is a photo of Blondie & Tibet finishing off their dinner.

They like to hang out under the bay trees during the rain. I've noticed they prefer natural shelter to the run-in shelter lol.

Please help with a tax-deductible donation to keep the pasture for the WILD horses because it gives them space to move around on 14 natural acres.

Many blessings,

I'm enclosing a clip of band brothers Val & Sol the day we got them out of BLM's disgusting Palomino Valley holding facility where there is no shelter only pens of slop made of manure and urine for half the year. We brought them to Robby Maus, a wonderful Parelli trainer near Reno, to help gentle the two weanlings.

After they were halter-gentled and we could catch them we brought them down to the wild horse pasture in the East Bay so they could heal from the trauma of losing their parents and losing their freedom to roam the American West.

I'm also enclosing a photo of Blondie in the pasture so you can see how happy the wild horses are to be free on 14 natural acres.

Please help them keep their pasture. Your tax-deductible donations will save it. The fundraiser is here: gofund.me/fujloc

The wild horses are so grateful you are helping them! Thank you for your kindness and compassion.

Many blessings,
