PLEASE LET ME KNOW… if you are having computer difficulty when donating to Horse and Man Foundation… I NEED to fix it and need information from those of you having issues.






Hi there everyone!

It was brought to my attention yesterday by a frustrated reader… that he couldn’t make a January Bucket Fund donation – no matter how many buttons he pushed or links he clicked.

Hmmmm.  I don’t want these donkeys to miss out because of technical issues!

–It made me wonder if anyone else was having those issues?!  To be honest, donations have been slow for these donkeys and I don’t know if that is normal, or if people are having technical issues with our donation system?…

So, PLEASE, if you are having issues donating, please let me know through a reply or a comment.  Let me know if you are using a Mac or PC, and what browser you have open that won’t let you donate.  Google?  Firefox?  Safari?

Many, many thanks.  I need to fix it – if there is a problem.  But I cannot create the same issue  here… it all works on my side.   I’m on a MAC.  And, I need to narrow it down to a PC thing or a browser thing.

THANK YOU!!

EMERGENCY JANUARY BUCKET FUND: 21 wet, starving and lonely DONKEYS NEED OUR HELP!






21 young donkeys.  Starving.  Sitting in mud.  Their owner fell off of a ladder when he was making repairs to the house.  He died.  During this awful time, the donkeys were deemed too much by the bereft wife.  She could not emotionally, mentally, physically… care for them.   So, they were left to fend for themselves for many weeks during winter storms in Texas.  9 young jennies and 12 intact (mostly young) jacks… losing weight daily in the rain and mud… . They are all very, very skinny – especially the youngest.  They all need skin care, proper nutrition and halter training!  The 12 boys all need to be gelded when they are fit enough for surgery.

Dr. Kris Anderson came to the rescue and took all 21 donkeys into her home – and is helping them out of her own pocket.  She also had to construct special housing for the intact males.  As soon as they are all ready for gelding, she will perform all 12 of those surgeries, too.  They all need excellent food, skin treatments, gelding and training.

Let’s help Dr. Kris with her good deed of jumping in and handling this situation, taking on this expense personally.  She just couldn’t not do something!

All donations are 100% tax deductible!  Thank you in advance for starting this year – helping!  Our goal is $200 per donkey to cover food, gelding, meds, housing, halter training, feet… .  A total of $4200!

This is Purdy. She is very, very underweight and sickly.  (The lead rope is not on her eye.  But close.  These were 21 wild, never haltered donkeys that needed to be captured and photographed for the Coggins test.  It was a wild day, but all made it to Dr. Kris’ home – and they are all being treated and cared for 24/7. )

They were all standing in mud and wire. This one is now named, Buddy.

This is Buttercup. The sores on her face need to be diagnosed.

This is junior stud, Rio. Not only is he very underweight, but he has eye and nose issues.

Here you can see how skinny they are… look at that hip. The hair hides the evils. But they are all skinny with skin issues.

This is a young jack now named, Cupid. They had broken down much of the fencing and barn, looking for food.

This is Flash. He ran away from his rescuers… (even though he is skin and bones under that hair)…once captured again, he was put in this paddock that had some grass. Lucky guy! He needs to be gelded once he gains weight.

This is poor Gidget. She is extremely underweight and depressed.

This is another baby, Lacy. She is very underweight. It is difficult to see under the hair, but she is tiny.

This is Paco… another baby stud.

This is Peanut. He is called Peanut because he is so skinny under that coat.

Another very skinny girl with the ridge of her topline showing. This is Pumpkin.

This is Shrek. He was pretty strong and didn’t want to be caught or haltered. Here you can see that they used a rope… the helpers were dragged in the mud, catching him, I was told.

This is very young, very skinny and very sweet, SweetPea.  She doesn’t know how to stand tied.  None of them do.  (Another halter too close to the eye… but she is fine.)

THEIR STORY…

When their relatively young owner died, his wife was unable to care for the donkeys.  Luckily, their vet, Dr. Kris, heard about what had happened and took the time to reached out to find out who was caring for the donkeys.  Once she found out that no one was caring for the donkeys… she offered to help the wife by taking on all 21 donkeys, herself.  Personally.   Dr. Kris had to evaluate them all, photograph them all for Coggins (in-state rule), prepare her pastures for the intact jacks and jennies, transport them all (they didn’t know how to load) and then treat them all.

Now, Dr. Kris Anderson is feeding them so they will become strong enough to go through the gelding and worming process.  With proper nutrition and skin care, they should be available for adoption in a few months.

Here are some of the newly rescued and finally EATING donkeys – at Dr. Kris’ home. She took them ALL into her small ranch. Because the males were all intact jacks, that was a challenge… but she did it!

THANK YOU!!!!!
