A Pony's Wish List
What the Ponies want for Christmas!
“A pony for Christmas” is an endearing wish list item inspiring songs, cards, poems, little girl dreams, and parent nightmares. But have you ever wondered, “What’s a pony want for Christmas?” Well, we have the answer! The mustangs of Steeds have created a Christmas wish list with items that you can fulfill easily and conveniently. By making a donation on a specific item in the list, your funds will help us make a Christmas wish come true for a sanctuaried mustang at Steadfast Steeds. The Sanctuary sits on a small property, and as stewards, we have been developing the property to most effectively meet their natural needs, e.g. movement, relationships, grazing, shelter. The current PathRing provides intentional movement that supports their fitness, and there are additional items needed for simulated, safe "grazing".
More horses are being helped in 2022!
In just a few months, new wild horses will be rescued from government holding facilities to realize a new family, a new freedom and a life as familiar as possible here at Steadfast Steeds.
*The BLM has specific requirements for untouched horses, most specifically 6 foot tall fencing. As part of expansion for supporting additional wild horses, 6-foot tall panels are required.
*Rubber stall mats will be utilized to minimize dirt intake from ground feeding.
*Barn tools: apple pickers, rakes, shovels, hoses
*Wind Screen: shelter and helps keep the hay from blowing away
*Hay nets: creates a slower grazing effect
*Hay is necessary year-round to meet nutritional needs of the horses.
*Solar powered LED lights for the indoor buildings provide year-round training and coaching options.
*TRACTOR: smaller sized, runs, bucket, tri-point hitch (brush cutter and post hole digger would be awesome).
