Wish List Items

We currently have 54 equines and they eat hay. This is something we always need.

We are in desperate need for some new or lightly used wheelbarrows. Many of the ones we have were donated years ago and some have holes in them.

We clean 65 stalls every day, as well as the paddocks and other enclosures and wheelbarrows enable us to do this work efficiently and safely.

*Guardians are organizations on the Equine Welfare Network that demonstrate a commitment to public transparency and accountability by their willingness to publish and share extensive data about their operations. The Guardian Designation is awarded annually.
