Well, today is BUCKET FUND TUESDAY… GIVE only if you feel moved to give, but I promise I’ll give back!






Oy, so many emails over the last few days!!  Everyone wanting money!  To be honest, it has been driving me a bit crazy.  I bet the same holds true for you…

So, even though today is the day I chose to announce the December Bucket Fund, please know that I know how you feel.  And I promise – I PROMISE – that if you give to the horses through the Bucket Fund, I will make sure any request for a certificate is promptly and accurately addressed.

I also promise that if you purchase any jewelry for the horses through Jewelry with a Purpose, I will make sure the item is perfect, gift wrapped and sent off immediately.

I have also promised to these Bucket Fund horses, that I will do my very best to help them.

So… without further ado… the December Bucket Fund Stories!

Our December Bucket Fund Horses!

Our December Bucket Fund Horses!  Lila, Cinny and The Mustangs!

DECEMBER BUCKET FUNDERS:  CINNY, LILA AND THE MUSTANGS!

YES, Donation Gift Certificates are available to give as gifts!  For example:  “A donation was made in your honor for Lila…”   (Scroll down!)

1)  CINNAMON THE ANCIENT (but charming…) GELDING.

Cinnamon is at The Golden Carrot Old Folks home for horses with age or special needs.  Cinnamon has both… He’s well over 30 and needs a special diet (he was very thin and had bad teeth), is sensitive to light, has arthritis… but he gets around quite well and has a very dapper and charming personality!

Look at that face! How could anyone abandon this old guy? He is so sweet and you can tell that he has very wise eyes…

Cinny fat pony

Cinny has gained his weight back and now spends his time out in the pasture, wooing his favorite mares, Ashley and Peanut. In fact, he won’t go into his stall at night until the girls have bedded down first.

In fact, Cinny refuses to go into his stall at night until his favorite mares, Ashley and Peanut, are bedded first.  What a Gentleman!

Cinnamon’s story:  Sadly, he was dumped a few months ago.  His owners didn’t want Cinny anymore and were arranging to have him put down… but hisis rescuers saw the glint in his eye and set forth to find him a new home.  Cinny landed well.  He was cared for immediately and has blossomed!

Please help Cinnamon with his monthly expenses this December.  Many, many thanks!

I have a very soft spot for the old, discarded horses. They are so wise and kind…

2)  LILA, THE MINI DONK who beat the odds but now has a tremendous bill to pay!

Do you remember Lila?!  She is the young, mini donkey that had the misfortune of meeting an uneducated vet who operated on a sarcoid which made it spread horribly and take over her left eye.

Luckily, the fine doctors at UC Davis spent an entire YEAR helping this little one fight the sarcoid through many, many Cisplatin treatments.  (Hence the need for a helping hand Bucket Fund…)

Thank goodness for Lila’s owner who convinced the UC Davis staff to care for this tiny donk… and thank HorseGods for the staff at UC Davis who kept up the good fight, without full payment, because they had to…

She made it!

She made it!

She made it! Lila spent A YEAR at UC Davis undergoing numerous Cisplatin treatments and finally, she has beaten the unbeatable sarcoid! Thank you, UC Davis, for fighting on!

3)  THE HORSE AND MAN, INC ‘RE-WILDING’ PROGRAM FOR THE MUSTANGS AND BURROS!

Now that Horse & Man has a non-profit arm, we plan on re-wilding Mustangs on private ranch lands.  Our plan is to use Heritage Ranching methods where range cattle can roam with the wild equine herds as it was with the bison and the mustangs/burros years ago.  Symbiotic, heritage ranching.

This is a delicate and involved process.  The plans are set but the lands need to be acquired.

For us at Horse & Man, we want to remember the Equine’s gift to us – and give back.

DONATION CERTIFICATE GIFTS!

I also offer ‘Certificates of Donation’ that can be given as a gift to anyone.  I will happily create a certificate if requested for any donation amount.  So, if you donate to any of the three horses above, just write in the ‘comment’ box if you’d like a certificate!  If you’d like me to personalize it with a giftee name and donation amount, I’m happy to do that for you!

Here is an example…  I’m happy to make one for you!
