ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX-DEDUCTIBLE.
Each Month, HORSE AND MAN has a Drop in the Bucket Fund for a specific equine charity. My theory is that sometimes it is easier to give anonymously in a very small amount than not give at all because one feels embarrassed to give just a little.
Well, many of us feel that way. But, if we put all the drops in one bucket, it makes a difference in some horse’s life. So, that is what this page is about. If you feel moved by our monthly Bucket Fund story but only have a few dollars to spare, we are happy to help it grow bigger.
All donations are compiled into one larger donation to be gifted at the end of the month.
Horse & Man, Inc is a Non-Profit 501 (c) 3 corporation so all donations are tax-deductible. Please save your Pay Pal receipt for your records.

JUNE 2017 BUCKET FUND:
IT IS MY BIRTHDAY – PLEASE MAKE MY WISH OF HELPING SAMSON… Beaten and blinded by his owner, Sampson’s rescuers walked him over 5 hours to bring him out of the Grand Canyon. JUNE BUCKET FUND: SAMPSON!
Today is my birthday and I can think of no better way to celebrate than collecting donations for Samson. His tragic story gripped me. His determination to survive – and those who helped him survive – sure deserve some support.
Samson was a Havasupai pack horse. His job was to haul humans and his wrangler owner up and down the Grand Canyon. Because Sampson was ‘spooky’ on the narrow trails, his owner punched his eye out – so he wouldn’t spook on that side. He also didn’t feed Samson. This poor, very unfortunate horse was starved, beaten and worked until the life was almost gone from him.
Look at his bunched, cramped and misshapen stature in this photo taken from a news video.
SAMSON’S STORY (from the Equine Voices email)
On May 30th Equine Voices opened our gates and hearts to this gentle, blind, Havasupai horse named Samson. Samson, named for his bravery, endured years of abuse carrying people and supplies up and down the eight-mile stretch in the Grand Canyon. He became blind after his owner violently punched him in the eye, leaving him without sight. (sic) We were contacted to see if we had room for this amazing warrior. Thankfully we did, and after a long, 5 1/2 hour, grueling walk out of the canyon, Samson has arrived safely home. Our very own ranch manager, Ricky Williams and Adam from Healing Hearts Rescue & Refuge, walked over eight miles to get Samson safely to the top of the canyon. Samson is one of the lucky ones, and we pray we will have more room and the financial capacity to help other Havasupai horses in need. If you would like to sponsor Samson, or help us in our Havasupai rescue mission, please call us at (520) 398-2814 .
