ON GIVING TUESDAY, PLEASE MEET OUR DECEMBER BUCKET FUND HORSE: EDDY. A gorgeous 22 year-old wild horse who desperately needs a second chance. Please, can we SPONSOR gentling for this very successful survivor (until he was caught…) son of Mother Nature so he can find a deserving, forever home? Could you be his forever home?!






When I hear about a healthy, strong, vital 22 year-old BLM mustang who lived for so long successfully in the wild… and then was CAPTURED… and now deemed worthless due to age…

IT JUST GOES AGAINST WHAT IS RIGHT!  EDDY IS EXACTLY WHAT MOTHER NATURE INTENDED.  STRONG, VITAL, SMART – A SURVIVOR.

But in the BLM corrals, EDDY is disposable.   He was just too old.  Luckily, a very big-hearted adopter got him out of those disgusting pens in hopes that someone would help Eddy the rest of the way.

Let’s do that!  Let’s help Eddy by supporting his gentling – and giving him back a new life!  This gorgeous, strong mustang lost his home, but he is still who he has always been and he wants to survive – and survive well.  Let’s give him life in the human world.  Let’s show him what is good about humans!

LET’S SPONSOR EDDY!  WE CAN GIFT HIM GENTLING WITH HONOR so he can find a loving, forever home.

All donations are 100% tax deductible!  If you would like a Holiday Certificate of donation to give as a gift, email me!     THANK YOU in advance.  This means so much to me.

At 22 years, we took away his freedom.

Is there a more godly creature than a successful, wild horse?!  JUST LOOK at Eddy!  This horse is a stoic, muscled, healthy prime example of survival of the fittest.  He is a specimen of what is RIGHT about wild horses.  And yet, after capture, because of his age, he is deemed worthless.  How could any wild horse be worthless?  How could this incredible being be worthless?

WHAT WE LEARNED ABOUT EDDY DURING HIS DONATED PHOTO SHOOT!

These glorious photos were taken by photographer Kate Mehmet of Kya Photography in hopes of garnering help for Eddy.  During the photo session, the onlookers gave these descriptors of Eddy:

Wise and brave
Intense presence
Powerful
Caring
Determined

And through all of those learned behaviors to keep him and his band safe, Eddy has already learned to take treats, eat from a hay bag, come when called and to not put his hind quarters near the human.  All very, very good signs.

LET US PLEASE help Eddy be gentled so he can find a forever home.  He doesn’t have to be ridden, he just has to be a good citizen.  And his age is no issue in learning how wonderful humans can be…

    Yes! We know Skydog well. Almost 3 years ago, we were one of the first to showcase them when they started because they took Rojo, Remi and Sam – who
    were my wild horses. I felt so lucky that they were willing to add them to the initial herds. Rojo lives in the boy band. Remi is in Malibu and Sam passed. We often run Bucket Funds for Skydog horses. It has been a lovely collaboration. They are a great organization. I wish there were many more.

    Sky Dog Rescue/Sanctuary is another awesome organization. They really like keeping as much of a herd (family) together, if any of Eddy’s are also being offered?

    Dawn, I’m sure he’ll have many home offers, but just in case he doesn’t, The Golden Carrot can be a fall back position. He certainly fits our mission on age alone… Can you let the appropriate people know?
