Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Pony Tales is working to improve the American equine through education and owner assistance. With the right tools, most people are good and have good intentions. Our goal is to help them if at all possible to continue to care for their equine, improve the quality of care the equine receives, and help with quality of life decisions.

Pony Tales has plans to conduct free or low-cost castration clinics at least on an annual basis. We are also starting a euthanasia fund to help owners address what is often best for the horse, provide the resources they need, and help them through the process.

In 2018 we held our first castration clinic with the help of the Unwanted Horse Coalition. We hope to work with them again this year and beyond. However, if we are unable to get funding through them, we have access to resources that will allow us to host the clinics on our own. For the euthanasia, we are working on a network of veterinarians and contractors around the midwest. If the owner is simply unable to be there, we will meet the veterinarian there on their behalf.

Last year 11 stallions were gelded. We often field inquiries from people with a sick, injured, lame horse asking us to take them in or what they should do with them. Our advice is generally that they should be put down unless a veterinarian determines otherwise. This has helped a handful of horses already to our knowledge.
