Current Needs

URGENT PROJECT NEEDS:
Garbage Disposal is broke and needs to be replaced and installed.
Sink Faucet in utility sink is cracked and needs to be replaced. This sink is used for art supply and mud clean up.
Tree Trimming is needed for the 47 trees on property. Half of these trees are along the road. 
 
Dirt/Fill for stalls is needed. It has compacted and worn away resulting in water in some of them.
Shell Rock for gate areas on both sides and front of horse barn is needed, due to daily water erosion during rainy season. We've installed landscape blocks to try to prevent dirt from washing away, but the areas are so muddy that rain boots come off in them and the animals have a hard time going through. Shell rock would allow the water to run off them and making the area hard to walk over. 
Fencing around 5 acre property has corroded and needs to be replaced and installed. There are coyotes in the area that we need to keep out in order to protect the smaller animals, including the miniature horses. 
Website:  We are in need of $900 to make our current website mobile friendly. 

WISH PROJECTS:
2 Horse Stalls are wanted to add to the ends of the existing horse barn. We'd like to close one in to make a tack and feed room that is air conditioned. 
Pole Barn is wanted to park the horse trailers, manure spreader, tractor mower, and golf cart in. Ideally, we wish to have a closed area as well, for storage of farm and/or horse equipment and supplies.
New Lighting is needed for the horse barn. The existing lighting doesn't work in 1/2 the stalls. We'd like to add lights to the front, sides and back of barn, also. 

We are seeking persons to underwrite the costs of these projects and/or assist with doing them. We can acquire estimates with and without labor. This is an excellent group project, if you're interested. Community service hours can be provided.

NEW TRUCK: Our current truck used to transport persons to and from the ranch, as well as feed and hay, farm supplies, and to pull the two horse trailer, is 20 years old with over 300K miles on it. It's not large enough to pull the 3 horse, steel, trailer that was donated to us. 
The transmission of the truck has been replaced 3 times and the entire truck has almost been rebuilt at least one time. We aren't able to travel out of the area confidently with this truck. A new, larger, truck would be safer, enable us to pull the larger trailer, and travel farther with peace of mind. 

PORTABLE PADDOCK:  We are in need of a portable paddock for the horses when we take them on outings that do not have adequate fenced areas for them.  Having our own portable fencing will enable us to take them to more places in order to facilitate equine assisted therapy and learning. Cost is $300.

SALARIES:  By 2020 or before, we hope to have sustainable income that will support four full time positions plus benefits: FT Executive Director $65K/yr, FT Clinical Program Manager $60K/yr, FT Ranch Manager $50K/yr, FT Case Manager $40K/yr. (Benefits are approximately $10K/yr of each employee's total).

TRANSPORTATION of HORSES for OUTREACHES:  Sponsor the cost of transporting two horses for outREACHes to locations such as DJJ and other residential facilities, local parks for day, and overnight outings. Cost of transporting horses 50 miles round trip, including gas, hay, feed and treats is approximately $50-$100. You can underwrite an outREACH and/or retreat and we'll give you shout outs on social media and provide you with a one of kind, 2 sided, original, mixed media, #horses4FREEdom artwork by JulietheArtist.

WATER:  We go through bottled water quickly! We provide it to all of our guests. Buy or sponsor a case of water for $4
