Select GOFUNDME Widow In Need

A little about my situation my husband and I ran a small home business (unfortunately under his Social Security account) until 2006 when he had a stroke.  My dead husband had some recovery, my husband was older then me (I’m 52) so we lived comfortably off his retirement.

In 2009 I decided to take in special needs mini horses, I was not doing a rescue, these were minis that are my pets and I wanted to give them the best life I could no matter how long they would have. So I took care of the horses, donkeys and mules and my very sick husband.

In 2012 I found out I had lung cancer, I went through chemo and radiation, it was my husband and equine in need that kept me going through that year of hell.

In 2014 my husband’s health started to decline and he past away in November of 2014.  I was already in depression from the lung cancer and my husbands death just pushed me further in depression. 

Now all I have left in my life is my equine in need of special care, each has health issues. 

Because I have been out of the work place for so long I am having a hard time getting a job.  My husband (I am his fourth wife) we were together twenty-two years and legally married for seventeen years.  Sadly, he left everything to his kids and I am to young to get widow’s benefits, so I just need a little help to keep my animals until I get back on my feet.

I have been trying since my husband’s passing been selling things so I can keep my equine.  I have lost everything I don’t want to lose my donkeys and horses.  

 I have seven mini horses, two mini donkeys and two  standard horses.  Each has special needs that make them unbreedable, so I have them to make sure they are not bred or sent to slaughter most are under 30″.  These equine are my only family.

Please help me so I do not lose my family!

Cost to keep my equine family:

A bale of low sugar/protene hay is $21.95 a bale, a fifty pound bag of grain is $13.99 and senior feed is  $16.99 for fifty pounds.  Lamentic equine require special diets and hay is more expensive.

My farrier is wonderful she trims everyone every 10 weeks for $200 for eleven equine.

1) tinky palomino 28″ tall 10 yrs old bad underbite- extra dental visits

2) lily red/white pinto 28″ 9 yrs old curved back legs and have trouble keeping weight

3) Destiny bay/appy 30″ 7 yrs old-auction baby senitive digestion issues and a inside deformed shoulder she has a permanent limp and is on anti-inflamatory meds when they stop helping she will need injections in her shoulder

4)Rosie bay pinto 29″ tall 14 yrs old – she was abused consistly kept pregnant, the foal she had right before I got her was dead in the field, she was malnourished and full of lice

5) Buttercup chestnut 25.5″ 8 years old has dwarfism bad bent back legs

6) Dolly grulla pinto 26.5″ 9 yrs old has dwarfism

7) LG black/white pinto 28″ he is gelded and has teeth problems and peridonial diease

On Tuesday (4/21/15) The U.S. District Court in Wyoming dismissed a lawsuit filed by the State of Wyoming against the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) seeking the removal of wild horses from public lands across the state. Earlier this year, the Court granted intervenor status to the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign (AWHPC), The Cloud Foundation, Return to Freedom, and wild horse photographers Carol Walker and Kimerlee Curyl. Intervenors promptly filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit against the BLM.

The Court stated in its decision that “the Court agrees with BLM and Intervenors. At this time there is…

Water For Wild Horses GOFUNDME

Select Water For Wild Horses

Drought in California has not spared the hundreds of horses at Return to Freedom.

In February 2015 our water table dropped and all wells stopped producing. We began trucking water in daily to fill the tanks – costing $466 a day / $3200 a week!

Return To Freedom provides refuge and care for almost 400 wild horses including 28 burros who have been captured from their ranges.

For 16 years RTF has a proven track record as a voice for change. Pioneering innovative management alternatives which have influenced a new direction for sanctuaries and solutions for keeping wild horses free on the range.

Return To Freedom has educated thousands of people a year through programs, volun-tourism both at the sanctuary , on America’s wilderness areas and through national outreach.

We need your help desperately now.

We have a small team who make sure the horses are fed and cared for each and every day. We want to thank our donors for keeping the troughs full- But we need your help to reach beyond our loyal donors. With many people giving alittle we can achieve alot!

With droughts, fuel cost increases and American hay growers selling to Asia, it is not only a challenge to raise the funds to keep up with the inflated hay costs, but now we need to raise funds to buy water – we just cannot do this without your help.

Please help us Fill the Bucket-

Return to Freedom’s Water for Wild Horses Fundraising Campaign will support our work with California Conservation Corps and Sierra Progressive as we move forward on matching grants to continue our water conservation plan at the sanctuary to:

– Increase water catchment
– Implement grey water systems
– Drill a horizontal well in a new location

We have had large holding tanks donated and have not been idle, but with no rain this winter we have to wait and see what water falls in 2016- and be prepared to catch it. In the meantime- we are hauling in 4300 gallons a day!

Please help the horses at Return To Freedom. They continue to serve to educate so many about the plight of wild horses. Each horse at the sanctuary has a story emblematic of tens of thousands more.

Return to Freedom is a 501C3 organization. All donations are sent weekly from Go Fund Me  directly  to Return to Freedom’s Water Fund.

Thank you and please share!

Select Sign-up For WebCast meet Flash, Rachel Ann Ridge and win prizes. This is a must read

FLASH flash

***************************************************************************************************************************

Need help training, caring (setting up your farm) for a happy healthy donkey?

I am a worldwide virtual coach, consultant and trainer of you the owner to learn how to teach your donkey to be a social good citizen on your farm. Picking up the foot, taking a walk, coming to you when called, loading in the trailer and backing out. I create a custom coaching plan based on your experience and goals for your donkey. I look forward to meeting you!

Ask me how virtual coaching works worldwide from my computer to your computer? Send me an e-mail Melody@DonkeyWhisperer.com

How Does Virtual Coaching Work?

We Skype at least once a week for one hour as I am training you to train your horse, donkey or mule. I am training you how to be a leader and stay safe and never get hurt. I train you to read the body language of your equine and understand the personality, introvert or extrovert of your equine and yourself and match the energy, never hold a grudge. I give you creative ways to fix the dance you are stuck in with your equine.  I am training you how to think like the equine, and be a fair leader without abuse, as equine are black and white in all things they do, no gray areas, one look from my lead mare and all other equine run out of the barn. Just a look. Donkeys, Horses and Mules always learn best from the person they trust, respect and feel safe with, this is you!

Do I go to the barn with you to train, coach and consult you? No

Are you ready to learn how to lead/train your donkey, horse or mule?  

I look forward to coaching you to become the leader your donkey, horse or mule is dreaming of and making your dreams come true. I study human personalities, equine personalities and behavior modification. I understand fear, disabilities and how easy it is to give up. Never give up is my motto, trust GOD in Jesus Christ name for all things. I teach you how to read your equine and help them learn to do the things you are dreaming of. This is my passion keeping equine in their homes and making your dreams come true. We all have dreams and goals, even I hired a personal coach after the semi-truck accident. I have been a virtual student too.

Homework

I give you detailed homework based on your goals, no more than fifteen minutes of training time for your equine two or three times a week.  Quality time is better than drilling, never drill any horse, mule or donkey. You do the home work, ask a family member or friend to video tape you, send me the video to review. Smart phones are easy to send short videos.

4. I teach you how to use your voice, timing, energy and more to train your equine.

How Do I Manage Your Lessons?

I bank your lessons meaning I send you a receipt after each one hour training class via skype. Skype is free to download on your computer and is a wonderful way to learn as I can see you and you can see me anywhere in the world. You can ask me any questions and I will answer, if I do not know the answer I will find the expert in the area of your need. Skype lets me type to you and you can type to me and we each can send videos. You can purchase one lesson at a time, five or the best deal ten lessons.  I offer free video review (no charge) and I will not charge you to call me or text me with short questions. Your donkey, mule or horses welfare and meeting your goals along with keeping you both safe is my number one concern. All relationships take time, having a plan will increase the time of meeting your goals 100%. All equine are looking for a leader who will help them find safety, I teach you how to provide this need to your donkey, horse or mule.

Having a personal coach, trainer and consultant is a wonderful way to learn as each problem you need resolved is instantly removed, leaving you with no worries and more time to enjoy your donkey, horse or mule.

How long is homework?
No more than fifteen to twenty minutes of training (home work) in most cases. Less is more, quality training, never drilling.

Is my credit card safe to give over the internet?
Yes, I pay KeyBank Virtual Merchant a fee every month and every customer for them to manage your credit cards.  I keep no credit cards on site ever.

My fellow horse enthusiasts probably cringed a bit at the title of this post. For those of you who are wondering why horse people hate small birds, here is a little explanation:

Thrush (the medical condition) is a fairly prevalent hoof problem caused by anaerobic bacteria. On the bottom of a horse’s hoof is the frog, a soft, v-shaped structure. Bacteria, most commonly Fusobacterium necrophorum, make their home in the crevices surrounding the frog and go to town. (For my fellow science junkies, those grooves are known as the medial and lateral sulci. Drop that at the breakfast table.) Just as the name “necrophorumimplies, these bacteria cause tissue death. Compacted dirt and poop stuck in the horse’s hooves provide the perfect oxygen-free environment for the bacteria to start eating healthy hoof tissue. If detected early (your nose will definitely tell you), this condition is fairly easy…

Deadline: 4/23/15
Location: Sunnyside, WA
Contact: Sabrina 206-250-5115 @ 8am-9pm

More Information: http://auctionhorses.net/…/15…/jitterbug-bay-donkey-mare-250

All descriptions of the horses are done as a courtesy and to the best of our ability, but we cannot guarantee the accuracy of any description as we are not horse professionals. Auction Horses does not allow fundraising on any of our pages. If someone is asking you to donate to one of the AuctionHorse listed horses they are doing so in blatant violation of our policies and without any approval or authorization from Auction horses. When bringing home a new equine it is always wise to practice quarantine procedures. Horses coming from an auction or kill pen environment present a higher than average likelihood of having been exposed to disease or virus. It is highly recommended that all horses purchased be subject to a 30 day quarantine prior to being introduced to healthy equines.
