A Bobcat like this would be so awesome to have for so many projects around the sanctuary
We currently are using a smaller tractor, but having a larger sized front end loader is necessary to keep the bigger corrals cleaned and rock free.

A truck full of hay delivered by Gateway for the burros!
Vetericyn, Desitin, gauze or vet wrap are our 3 most important items we can't ever have enough of.
Here is a list of what we need to help make life for the burros awesome:
BALES OF HAY/ALFALFA - as many as you'd like to buy! They have big trucks to haul lots of bales:) If you can buy even just one bale of hay a week at the going price that would add up quickly and if enough good folks could get together to order that way we would always have a supply for the burros:)
Perhaps suggest it to co-workers or other family members!
VETERICYN- for wound care. The vetericyn made for eye care (the gel form) is also needed.
FLAT ROLLED OATS
EQUINE MINERAL BLOCKS
DOG FOOD (BAG OF DRY FOOD) and Cat food
INFLATABLE SOLAR LANTERNS
What we have need of is water troughs for the burros. The ones we currently have are getting quite old now, cracking, leaking... We need 75 gallon to 150 gallon troughs.(We have enough of the 300 gallon ones now!) We are trying to replace our cracked plastic ones with metal troughs now.
As for the older troughs that we can replace, they are recycled and used as a raised garden for vegetables and flowers.
These,too, can be ordered directly from Gateway (see above contact info) They run approximately $100 a piece for the 12' panels/4 rail/galvanized
We can use any amount you'd like to purchase. They will deliver them here when we get our hay shipment from them!
We desperately need shelters for our aging burros! You can call Billet Barns, who put up our existing shelters, for pricing on the 12x12 size shelters.
Their phone number is: (661) 945-1249
We are in need of a 4-horse bumper-pulled horse trailer
We want to thank all who have helped us with the fly products!! Thanks to the wonderful response to our plea for help over the summer months, we now have quite a bit of the SWAT fly ointment and fly repellents, etc. that will be a good start for next spring/summer!
If you'd like to help out by ordering directly through the store, here is the information:

THEY DELIVER TO US!
The main ranch house...desperately needs a new roof!
Below is a list of bigger things that we could really use here at the sanctuary:
website maintained and updated
by Karen Gilligan, VP WBR
We of course always need the Equine Senior, rolled oats and yes, even dog biscuit treats. All of these can be bought through our Gateway supplier who in turn will add it to the truck when they bring our hay.
This is(was) our main ranch truck...that is no longer working. Having a TRUCK is a MUST at our sanctuary. Would anyone want to donate a 4x4 truck to the burro sanctuary?! What a great tax write off that would be!
Our Wish List
Water troughs needed! The 75-150 gallons
**RANCH TRUCK**TOP PRIORITY!!
The truck we currently have does not work...we are using a Toyota Previa mini van to haul hay to our burros. We have put quite a bit of money into getting our truck to run but it has finally "bit the dust"... Does anyone have a used truck (preferably 4x4) that you would like to donate to the sanctuary? It can be used as a tax write-off! Please pass the word out there to your family and friends!
PORTABLE SOLAR POWER SYSTEM
To provide power for a computer and lighting for shelters, remote areas of the sanctuary and during rescue missions in desolate desert back country.
GAS OPERATED AIR COMPRESSOR
we need this for filling the tires in the tractor and other vehicles! Don't forget that we are OFF the power grid!
Trying to sleep in the ranch house at night, we are deafened by the munching of termites in the 37 year old tin and 2x4 roof, terrified that the next gust of wind will have us in the open air.
MATERIAL FOR FENCES-
we need lots of T-posts, steel pipe (2") for fencing and some field fence
- Wooden fence posts 4x4 or larger
- corrugated metal sheeting for wind break walls, roofing, etc.
- 4 rail, 12 foot galvanized corral panels and gates
LARGE FRONT END LOADER / BACK HOE
we currently have a small sized Kabota tractor but we have a real need for a full sized one. We have many large boulders that are next to impossible to move. It would help us to move corral panels too!
- re-bars for foundation work
- Trojan L-16 cycle batteries for our solar battery bank
- a solar electric fence, solar charger and a 2" white poly wire
This versatile machine would be ever so useful up here to help us keep corrals cleaned and put up more fencing.
