Capital Improvements

Your bequest will make it possible for more horses to be helped in the future.

Capital Improvement Goals
A new, dry, suitable farm for the horses
The current HPAF farm is a beautiful property of 189 acres but unfortunately it is very wet and the pastures are under water a part of the year. When the horses stand and graze in water and wet muck it is very detrimental to their hooves. Because of being saturated in water for weeks and months at a time, many of the horses have serious damage to their hooves, their hooves abscess and growing out the damaged area of the hooves takes up to a year. A number of the horses are unsound during the wet season and we have even lost two horses because their hooves were so damaged and painful.
A long term lease or the donation of a high and dry farm in Marion County would allow the horses to be safe, healthy and sound. The current farm which is leased to HPAF for $1 a year will be kept to provide winter pasture and quarantine/ housing for the rescue and initial housing of large numbers/herds of horses.

On the new high and dry farm

Covered arena which will provide a riding, training and event area. The arena perimeter will also serve as a covered area for feeding stalls/pens where the horses can be fed out of the hot sun, storms and cold winter rain.
Intensive Care Barn CBS block barn for treatment and stall rest of debilitated horses. This building could include an office. A dust & leak free area for the computers would be of great benefit.
Housing for interns, working students and veterans for vocational training

Newer Truck
We love our Ford Diesel truck but it has over 200,000 miles. A newer model a safe, reliable truck is needed for transporting horses

Utility Vehicle
Thank you to Kirk Landon and the Kirk Foundation for the donation of a Polaris Ranger Crew Utility Vehicle. This workhorse of a machine is a life saver! It is used to feed the horses twice a day, to traverse the pastures to check horses and fence lines and give tours of the farm.
