This is the resting page for those who wish to help our sanctuary continue & thrive.
As most know, the primary source of funding for the Heart of the Wild is through my artisan studio website. My artwork is what generates the income for us to survive. I live here with my daughter (Manda), and 2 grandchildren (Valon & Sam). I work for the sole purpose of maintaining the sanctuary grounds, and caring for the residents who live here. We live a simple life, a hands on life, and we work hard. We don't get paid, and we don't waste our resources. We simply believe that in this life we are but simple stewards, and are here to help in the best ways that we know how, using the talents & experience we were given & learned. This is what we do, and how we live & share our lives with the animals here.
Yes, often there is a need greater than I myself can fulfill, and that is when I reach out for help. This page is a place to find the links, and information you will need if you are interested in being a steward of the sanctuary alongside us. No donation is too small, and all are greatly appreciated.
Mothers Day 2022 - Facebook Fundraiser
FUNDRAISER IS COMPLETE - Thank You!
In memory of my mom, who helped me begin this sanctuary, I am posting our annual hay fundraiser for Mothers Day 2022. We have 40 bales of hay reserved to pick up in June when bailing begins, for the sanctuary horses, donkeys, and ponies. Will you help us meet the goal?
This is the amount to get us through the summer, and until next spring. The total cost of the 40 bales is $2000, at a locked in price. We are very fortunate to get this quality of hay for this price for certain, especially due to the current economic situations our local farmers are dealing with in regards to fertilizer costs etc.
Remember, we are not an equine rescue, but rather an equine sanctuary. The animals here are mostly seniors who survived horrendous abuse & neglect situations with ptsd type trauma. Heart of the Wild is their permanent home.
I thank you for your consideration & help on their behalf. We love you all, and are so grateful for our sanctuary stewards, for without your help I dare say the struggle would be incredibly difficult, especially at this time.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. No donation is too small, and all are greatly appreciated. We are so very grateful for your care & generosity.
We use Ultracruz® every single day for all of the horses, donkeys & ponies. on the sanctuary. Its expensive, but ever so necessary, especially for the seniors. The stronger your immune system is, the healthier you are. They cannot get these important nutrients through grain or hay alone. They receive 1/4 cup every single day, and the ponies a bit less. This is one of the items I do struggle a bit to keep on the shelf, so I am adding it to my list of things we could use help with. Our Amazon Wish List
More Information about it:
UltraCruz® Equine Pure Flax Oil Supplement for Horses is a feed supplement that provides a source of pure, cold-pressed Flax (Linseed) Oil in the form of a palatable liquid that serves as an excellent source of Omega-3 Fatty Acids for horses. This supplement is ideal for horses that are lacking Omega-3 Fatty Acids in their diet, or consuming a diet with an imbalanced ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6 Fatty Acids. An equine diet with a balanced fatty acid ratio is essential for supporting healthy skin, coat, and hooves.
Flax Seed is a rich source of the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid, which is classified as an Omega-3 Fatty Acid. Flax Seed is one of the greatest plant sources of Omega-3 Fatty Acids and also contains protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals. Flax Oil is a natural supplement that supports the skin and coat, and promotes stronger, crack-resistant hooves. It is also a great source of "cool calories" for all horses, and especially horses with nervous tendencies.
Historically, under natural conditions, horses consume an approximately 5:1 ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6, which is the ratio found in grass and green hay. The modern equine diet, which is primarily grain-based, has a low (less than 1:10) ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6.
We sometimes need help with certain items for the sanctuary, such as winter blankets, supplements, and maintenance things. Amazon does carry many of those items, and I have added what we are in current need of to that list as of April 2021.
Art inspired by my connection to the horses who call Heart of the Wild home. The purchase of any of these items, or other items in my shop, helps to fund the cost of senior horse feed, hay, or alfalfa pellets, rehab care, vetting, sanctuary maintenance, and the upkeep of the horses & other residents who call HOTW home.
