Your tax-deductible donation to Wayward Ponies' Home, Inc. goes directly into an account that is used solely for the consumable support of our rescued horses and ponies, with a small proportion set aside for promotion. Not a penny goes to their housing, fencing or grounds, since that would add to the value of the property they occupy. Nor will a donated cent go toward anything for our three personal horses, since they were given to us for a purpose (trail riding). Their food is paid for separately, and they live and eat separately. (People who run orphanages may be allowed to have children of their own.)
We lease 3 acres of our land to Wayward Ponies' Home, Inc. for a dollar a year, and take no property tax deductions for it. The directors of Wayward Ponies' Home get no pay--it's against the bylaws.
This is our shopping list:
Hay - 36 bales a month
Senior pelleted feed - 8 bags a month
Beet pulp - 16 bags a month
Feel free to ask for references as to the ponies' care by asking for contact information for our vet and farrier.
