Trainers: Earn Money!
The lowdown: Approved trainers can earn $1,000 per horse or burro through the Mustang Heritage Foundation’s expanded “Storefront” training program. How it works: You must be able to gentle and train 10 or more wild mustangs or burros at any one time, and have necessary facilities, including 6-foot fences. After training requirements are met, Storefront trainers will receive $1,000 for each animal placed into an adoptive home. Details: Learn more about this and other earning opportunities by visiting mustangheritagefoundation.org or by calling (512) 869-3225.
Clean out some used syringes and load them with applesauce, syrup, or molasses. Then, each day for several days before a deworming, “syringe” your horse with a treat. When it’s time to deworm, put some of the treat on the outside of the actual deworming syringe.
