Your horses are contributing a massive amount of critical data that is being compiled as we speak. This data will help all wild horses on public lands as it lays out a model for managing our public lands wild horses. The data will be presented to the new Congress in November.
Swollen stream that flows through pasture. Approximately 12 feet of water.
Winter is fast approaching and we still need to purchase enough hay to get us through another winter. All our hay supplies must be in by October 1st as you remember last year, 42,000 animals in western South Dakota lost their lives in the storm of the century, known as Atlas.
Sections fence destroyed by debris from the flooded waters - Gila pasture
Already this week we have damage to our south pasture where our rare Spanish Gila herd resides as flood waters ravaged the pasture when SD was hit with 6 inches of rain in a less than 24 hours. Thankfully, the horses galloped to high ground and we suffered no losses.
We have a lot of money to raise to purchase hay but with your help we can do it. We must protect these animals whose families have not been disrupted in over a decade of time. Without these horses, our data will be useless. We must protect them at all costs.
Please help today! Our goal is to raise $250,000. I know we can do it with your help.
With great appreciation from ISPMB and your horses!
Any size donation gets us closer to helping your horses!
