Please read this note from Jackie, our founder, about our need for your ideas and help in securing more land for our horses.
Cash donations are always very welcome. We always need to buy hay, gas for our vehicles, fencing supplies and vet supplies amongst other expenses. We also need to pay for vehicle repairs and for the lease on some of the land we rent.
What we desperately need is more land. In order to continue to help our mustangs and keep them roaming on the range year round, we must have additional acreage. We have a foundation piece of land, 1,100 acres at Watrous along the old route of the Santa Fe Trail, but we are looking for funds to expand on this to create a much larger land preserve. This way our horses, and perhaps more in the future, can graze year round without risk of overgrazing the fragile prairie. There are 1000's of acres for sale all around our foundation piece and we would love to be able to preserve this historical land from development and keep it wild (complete with wagon ruts left behind by the long ago wagons of the Santa Fe Trail). Please see our short youtube presentation about Watrous, the land, the Santa Fe Trail and our reserve.
One other way that you, or somebody you know, can help is if you own a large piece of land and are willing to host a small band of wild horses. We take birth control seriously and so this band would not grow, but if you have a piece of land that could easily sustain a small herd of horses and you would like to make a home for them, please let us know!
(If you wish to make a cash donation, please make checks payable to "Cimarron Sky-Dog Reserve" and mail to Cimarron Sky-Dog Reserve P.O. Box 3
