Our Wish List
Grant Writers to help with applications for grant submissions
Your business can become a Corporate Sponsor! You can increase your brand or business awareness by sponsoring a horse and placing a banner in the arena.
The horses wish list:
- A gift card to their favorite feed store. The feed store welcomes calls for anyone wanting to donate an amount to the Happy Hooves Account. They also stock the treats, fly spray, Buteless and several more goodies the horses love! Phone: 636-327-0594 / Email: APLUS.NUTRITION@YAHOO.COM
- Alfalfa or Timothy pellets. Most feed stores and Rural King’s carry 40 -50 lb. bags.
- Good small or large hay bales. The rescue uses over 3000 bales a year for the horses. Unfortunately we do not have the storage for big round bales.
- Buteless – 5lbs. will last almost 2 weeks. Prices vary at feed stores or online shops.
- Monterey Bay Spice Company – https://www.herbco.com. We use a lot of natural herbs with the horses that like to eat them. Horses left in pastures where herbs grow wild will pick and choose the ones their bodies instinctively know they need. Some common ones used are Raspberry leaf c/s, Garlic powder, Turmeric root powder, White willow bark powder, Devil’s claw root, Boswellia serrata, Calendula, Calendula, Comfrey.
- Rubber stall mats
- 100 gallon and larger water troughs
- Equine fresh pellet bedding found at Rural King.
- Loose salt ($6.99 at Rural King)
- MSM – The horses need a lot of MSM due to the fact MSM has multiple uses for horses. It is primarily thought of as an arthritis supplement and pain medication but has other actions as well. Boosting the immune system is also considered to be a benefit of MSM supplementation. The main actions of MSM for horses are to reduce inflammation and improve circulation.
