We Thank You for all of your support in the aid and rescue of these beautiful animals! We could not do all that we do, without your wonderful support. ❤️
Halters – Either with a breakaway leather crown piece or all leather. Sizes range from mini, pony, and horse.
Lead Ropes – Cotton or nylon lead ropes, any color.
Leather Lead Shanks – Leather with a small chain at one end. Especially useful when holding a horse, bovine, or farm animal for vet care.
Ointments and Lineaments – Antibiotic ointments for wound care.
Fly Spray – Any of the natural ingredient ones. The fly season is long.
Salt Blocks – Plain white, red, or mineral. Horses have these available all year round.
Shavings – Bags of pine shaving for bedding the stalls. The horses and assorted farm animals each use 1/4 - 1/2 bag a day, and stalls/houses are cleaned daily. You can call our local feed store "Douglas Feed" at 307-358-3570 if you'd like to order some bags for our rescue. They know us, and they're ready to take your order.
Hay – Most of our Rescue Horses are fed a mixture of grass and Alfalfa hay. Each horse (from minis to drafts) eats
between 5lbs and 40lbs of hay a day. Monetary donations are the best way for us to get hay, since we check for the best prices for the hay that our animals need. But if you'd like to purchase a truckload, we're not going to stop you. 🙂
Grains and Oats – The Rescue animals are, at times, fed on an individual dietary basis depending on their needs. Quantities and types of food vary from animal to animal, but we can always use a bag or bags of whole oats, senior feed, poultry feed, pig feed, turtle food and parrot food. Cubes of Timothy/Alfalfa mix are awesome for our newer rescues, and fermented hay in bags are most welcome for our minis.
Treats – Carrots and apples are always welcome. There are numerous varieties of horse treats in various flavors, such as; peppermint, licorice, carrot, carrot and oat, apple, apple and oats, etc. We prefer the real McCoy, but we'll take the dried versions as well.
Brooms – Our brooms wear out quickly from all the sweeping of the barns. We use small (house-size) brooms up to the extra wide broom size.
Paper Products – This would include paper towels (preferably the blue shop paper towels in handy rolls,) large and small sealable plastic bags, and 50 gallon sized garbage bags.
Large Plastic Muck Buckets – shallow. These come in handy for placing loose hay from the bales, and “snacks” of hay for the horses throughout the day. They look like a large basket with rope handles, but are made of plastic.
Horse Blankets and Sheets – We have a great inventory of large sizes, but are in need of mini, pony, and smaller horse sizes less then 74″. We also need draft horse size.
Manure Forks – We have many manure forks that have some tines missing or have broken handles. We can always use more to replace the bad ones.
Pipe Corral Fencing and Panels
Disposable Gloves – Gloves are in use constantly, especially when any of our animals are in need of scheduled medical care. Latex disposable gloves are used for treating injuries on animals, as well as rubbing lineament’s on animals legs, administering shots, etc.
Saddle Soap / Neatsfoot Oil – Cleaning products to keep our leather bridles, saddles, halters, exercise harnesses and leads in good condition.
Hardware – The number of hooks for use on stall doors, double ended clips, bridle racks, saddle racks, nails and screws of all sizes, and screw eye hooks, is never-ending. The larger the hook, the better.
Bedding - straw, wood shavings, and wood chips. In order of importance. Straw is our most important bedding, as it provides the greatest comfort.
Any of these items would be a wonderful donation to help our rescue. We happily announce your donation to the rescue, on our website and Facebook page. We will also place a permanent plaque with your name, or your business name; added on, in, or around our rescue areas. **We respect your privacy, so if you would rather not be acknowledged, just let us know.
If you look in a horse supply catalogue, go to a used tack sale, or have items of your own you no longer use, we can probably use them in our rescue.
As always, we thank you from every piece of our hearts for helping us help those who cannot help themselves; and our rescue and sanctuary animals, (big and small) thank you, too. ❤
