There are so many items that can help us help the horses such as hay, feed, health care items (wormers, bandage materials, betadine), building & fencing materials, tack, office supplies (copy paper, ink cartridges), horse trailers, grooming tools and so much more.
Here's the list. It's always growing...
If you have something not on this list that you may want to donate – please contact us.
Other Opportunities to Give
We have several unique programs which allow you to become a vital part of Horseplay! Please contact us to be a part of our program.
“Sponsor a Herd Member”- For a donation of $500
a year, you will receive monthly letters/photos of the horse of your choice.
You will be welcome to visit our horses (planned visits) and give your
horse a hug and a carrot or two. Your donation of $500 will provide one
of our herd with necessary routine vet expenses and hoof care as well as
help with feed and hay.
“Keep ‘em in Hay” – For a donation of $300 you
will be allowing us to purchase roughly one ton of hay. This will feed
the present herd for one month. Hay is vital to good horse health – a horse
requires 2% of it's body weight in food per day just to maintain their
weight. Also as they are grazing herbivores, most of that food should be in
a fibrous forage, i.e. hay.
“Trim our Hooves” – for a donation of $250 you
will be allowing us to trim the hooves of 10 horses. This is done on a
regular basis, about every 6 weeks, as their hooves grow (like our fingernails)
and need to be maintained to prevent lameness.
“Feed the Herd” – For a donation of $150, Horse
Play will be able to purchase 10 bags of feed. This will feed the present
herd for 10 days.
“Shelter the Herd” – For a donation of $75 you will be allowing us to purchase 10 replacement or new boards for wooden run-in sheds.
