Many avenues of support open for donors who want to help the wild horses of Lincoln County
A bank account is available for direct donations at any of the City Bank of New Mexico offices and the GoFundMe account for the herd remains open.
But Robbie Davis said several other opportunities also are available.
Raffle tickets are on sale for two original works of art by local artist Barbara Yates, who donated the works to benefit the herd returned to pens in the Alto area until the court decides if they fit the definition of wild horses or estray livestock.
The first drawing on Nov. 1, will be for “Fighting Spirit,” a portrait of a herd member advocates say is no longer being spotted. The second drawing will be for “Hilltop Grazing,” the portrait of a mare and her foal. Tickets are $5 each or $20 for five.
Signed prints also are being sold of horses in a field with the mountains in the background by artist Victoria Mauldin, who formerly lived in Ruidoso. The prints sell for $50 and Davis said only a few are left to purchase.
For those who prefer experiencing horses, not just viewing them, a custom-made saddle is being raffled Nov. 6, with tickets priced at $5 each or five for $20. The size 16 saddle comes with breast collar, silver embellishments and was made by Canyon Rock American Tradition Saddlery.
To purchase tickets or the signed prints, make checks payable to Wild Horses of Lincoln County and mail to Robbie Davis, P.O. Box 1854, Ruidoso, NM 88355.
