DEAR FRIENDS OF PERSONAL PONIES LTD.

WE ARE SO VERY GRATEFUL FOR THE SUPPORT OFFERED TO OUR PERSONAL PONIES PROGRAM!

       At the moment, much of the funds we have collected have gone into our bank account to allow us the ability to pay out funds as the need arises.  Thus far, the funds contributed have gone to helping pay one of our dedicated transporters for moving a group of ponies out of Ohio and Pennsylvania to their new homes in Maryland and North Carolina.  Funds were also provided to geld a young stallion that is needed as a promotional program in New Hampshire.  Funds were sent to a volunteer in Idaho to help with another gelding of one of our older stallions which requires a visit to the medical clinic instead of having the process done on the farm.  A much more costly proposition.

      The rest of the funds are securely  put away for the spring when we begin our efforts to move more ponies to their new assignments and deal with other needs of our volunteers.  This spring there are six ponies in South Dakota needing to be relocated and five ponies in Maine ---  transporting them will be a challenge.  Having funds available to move these ponies when the snow melts is very important and helpful beyond measure.  

       This spring, May 12-15 we will be holding our National Conference where our volunteers from around the country gather at our National Office in Barnesville, MD to share ideas and experiences and discuss the long term (100 years and more) vision of our program.  At that time, we are hoping to have a presentation made by Global Giving to help educate our volunteers on the importance of our National fundraising efforts.  Throughout the year, we will be having to find ways to support the health of some ponies, the costs of transport, the cost of burial, and to support those families that are dealing with temporary financial challenges.

Again, many thanks for all the support.  It is helpful beyond measure!

All the best and With Gratitude,

Personal Ponies Ltd.

$10
USD
Helps pay for feed and hay for a child's pony. Many times paying for pony care can be cost prohibitive and our national office tries to help. Providing money for feed and hay can make a difference.
$25
USD
Helps cover some of the yearly health costs for maintaining a child's pony. Veterinarian fees can be costly, especially given the costs a family faces for the care of a differently able child.
$50
USD
Pays part of transport costs for pony travel. Getting our ponies to the children that need them can be very costly. Transport is one of our biggest challenges
$100
USD
Provides funds for breeding costs for broodmare and foal care. Without volunteer breeders we have no future program. Breeders are in need of financial support at times especially for foaling.
$150
USD
Will cover the costs for a new family to purchase halters, leadlines, water buckets, grooming equipment, and saddles or driving equipment.
$200
USD
Pay the cost of gelding one of our young colts so that he can begin his life as a child's pony friend. All colts not in our breeding program are gelded at around 6 months of age.
$500
USD
Will help care for one of our retired ponies for one year. Retired ponies have given a life of service often need extra care and support. Retired ponies are treated with great care and appreciation.
$2,000
USD
Will be held in savings for emergency care for a pony whose family needs help. Economic conditions or personal situations require emergency financial support so a child can keep his or her ponies.
