Every year there are fences to build and mend, water tanks to maintain, mineral  to distribute, hay to purchase and feed during the winter, veterinarian costs, haying equipment to maintain, and fuel costs for the tractors and trucks used to care for the mustangs. 89% of all donated dollars by our donors go directly to the care of the wild horses that make their home on the Sanctuary.
