Horse Education

Mission:Wolf works with horses in many capacities.  For years we have needed to provide short term housing to old, sick and dying horses that were delivered to us to provide meat for the wolves.  These horses, along with our own small herd, have become teachers to many. For over a decade we have studied horses to understand and respond to their body language. In this process of body language communication one theme repeats itself--the wolf and the horse have the same root foundation behavior: "Fight or Flight."  By using mimicry, mirroring, attitude and intent we have learned to interrupt parallel behaviors. This allows us to direct motion of frightened animals and opens up new worlds of understanding and communication. To respond to unwanted horses' needs and to provide more training opportunities for people we are working to create a Horse Teaching Barn. Unwanted healthy horses are placed in permanent adoptive homes.

Horses & Teaching Barn

Mission Wolf  receives healthy horses that have been abandoned and are not ready to be put down. Our goal is to create a solar-powered, earth-bermed, 3500 sq. ft barn that will provide shelter for five horses, a food storage area, a vet room for both horses and wolves, bathroom, hayloft, workroom and caretaker apartment. This facility will be used to increase our ability to care for more unwanted horses as well as provide a space for groups to learn more about horses from our own herd.

Donate a Sick Horse

We provide ranchers a place to dispose of their sick or deceased horses in a way that doesn't attract unwanted predators to their ranch or farm. Many horse lovers think it a high honor to have their animals utilized by a predator and follow natures circle of life. Donations of livestock are tax deductable.
