Sponsoring a horse is an exciting and highly personalized way to support CWHF and its mission. Sponsors receive a beautifully embossed 8.5×11 leatherette presentation folder, complete with a color photo of the sponsored horse, an official sponsorship certificate, and information about the horse’s life. The $75 (or more if you choose) Horse Sponsorship program is a form of CWHF membership, and horse sponsorships are renewable annually.
Sponsor Now or Give as a Gift. In addition to individual names, certificates can be made for a family, organization, or business name, e.g. “The Hansens” or “Corolla YMCA,” etc. A gift sponsorship is a great way to introduce someone to charitable giving and to the wild horses of Corolla. Both regular and gift sponsorships can also be made by mail. Click the link below, print the Sponsor Form, and mail in your sponsorship request.
HORSES AVAILABLE FOR SPONSORSHIP
Rescued Mare. Born on Dews Island, Luna is about 12 years old and came to the CWHF rescue farm with her mother Brownie and six of her sisters in the fall of 2017. Luna’s father was the well known Little Red Man. Luna is becoming a wonderful ambassador for her breed and has shown the gentle nature and willingness to learn that was exhibited by her mother.
Rescued Mare. Rita is a 10-year-old mare who was rescued from the beach as a foal due to contracted tendons. She was adopted by a wonderful family who she lived with for many years. Rita’s adopted mom became terminally ill in the spring of 2018 and she was returned to us with the promise of good care and love. We are happy to provide Rita with a forever home.
Rescued Stallion. Ducky is a 7-year-old stallion who came to live at the rescue farm in May 2018 with his harem of 4 mares and his yearling son. Since Jan 2018, he and his harem continued to make their way around the northern fence in to False Cape and Back Bay until we were forced to have them removed. While no longer wild, they are now safe and in the Fund’s care. Ducky is particularly sweet and personable.
Rescued Mule. Raymond was born on the beach more than 20 years ago, the offspring of a wild Banker mare and a domestic donkey owned by a local farmer. We’ve analyzed Raymond’s DNA and believe it or not he has just as much Spanish blood as many of the horses! Raymond will require specialized care for the rest of his life, including a special diet and regular vet visits.
Wild stallion. For some time, we have wanted to again offer the opportunity to sponsor one of the wild horses. And we couldn’t think of a better entry in starting this program than with the son of one of the most significant stallions of the herd who recently passed. Amadeo lived a long and hearty life, over half of it in the wild and many years with us at the farm. Amadeo Junior stands out much like his father did. He is a flashy sorrel stallion with a white blaze and a commanding stature. He inherited these traits from his dad.
