Mustang Sanctuary

Many years ago we took in many wild mustangs from a rescue situation in California where Slick Gardner had accumulated over 500 mustangs allowing them to continue breeding and then ran out of funds and they were all slowly starving.We were just one rescue across the nation who stepped up and took several loads of these wild mustangs.  We took in many and adopted out most.  There were those that had just “had it” with humans.  While they could have been trained with the correct methods we didn’t have the funds or the trainer to send them to at the time.  So we decided to let them continue to live out their lives in as natural a setting as possible.  We are housing 3 mustangs that are great to look at and learn from, but they are not for adoption.  They are well fed and keep their hooves trimmed naturally (Thank God for that) and we are able to deworm them by giving them a treat of grain with extra molasses and the dewormer in it.  We need funds to help care for these wild mustangs as they do still need and require feed.  They have pasture and shelter and water and mineral and appear to be quite happy and content in their environment.  Do you want to come visit the mustangs – call ahead to see what the ground conditions are as we have to go through some mud to see them sometimes.We update their photos usually twice a year but I will be posting some recent pictures soon!Jiggs, Sadie, Flicka, Ariel and Kira can be sponsored at any time. 

5/19/17    We all know how hard it is to lose a horse, well Thursday a volunteer was mowing grass. Saw all the mustangs grazing in the pasture as she went up the hill. She mowed the top and was coming down only to see one of our wild mustangs gone. Ariel was in her mid 20’s – 30’s we estimate, and thanks to you she had been with us since prior to 2004 – over 14 years. You allowed her to remain her wild self, let her be free and made sure she was always fed, watered and had shelter. Your donations allow us to feed and care for the remaining 3 wild mustangs in our care. So Thank You! Thank you from Sadie, Jiggs, and Kira, and all the horses that we continue to care for and hope to be able to continue with your support!
