My name is Holly,
but I am also known as Chaeyahne, from Studio on the Pond, and Enchanted Quills. I am also the founder of Heart of the Wild Sanctuary. I am an illustrator, creator, designer. I use many mediums in my work, which is generally inspired by nature, and or the horses I care for. I have been an artisan for going on 36 years now, professionally, and my art is my sole source of income. This income is how I support the sanctuary, along with donations from our beloved Patron's. I have been in rescue & rehabilitation since the mid 1980's, first with the DNR with baby whitetail deer rehabilitation & release, and then as a working on farm shepherd, and lots of dog rescue and rehoming. It was not until I adopted an abused & neglected white arabian mare in 2015, which I named Arwen, that horses came back into my life after 26 years. I purchased a Sheldon Reserve mustang mare named Celeste as a companion for Arwen, which then opened the door to the American Mustang & mustang people, to come into my life. The Sanctuary literally began with the adoption of a senior American Mustang mare, named Reveille Starr, that the plight & need for mustang sanctuary & rescue became apparent to me. 

Heart of the Wild Sanctuary's focus efforts are for the less adoptable equines. The aged, permanently debilitated, or otherwise. A soft landing place for the broken. I personally have a soft place in my heart for America's wild horses, the American Mustang, and currently provide haven for 7 of these amazingly resilient creatures. We currently provide sanctuary for 23 equines total, from former abuse/neglect situations, old age rescues, and sanctuary animals. We are home to the ones who cannot be adopted or rehomed after rehabilitation.

I do not generally do rescue work now, although I have in the past. I am a sanctuary & resting place for the ones who need it most. The old ones, horses & dogs, and the ones no longer able to stand the noise of life, they come here to be quiet, respected, and find peace from the abuse that they have felt. We never intended to go public, but rather work behind the scenes with the larger rescues to provide a safe haven for the ones deemed unadoptable.

Our Story, the Horses & I

   Our story begins with my Mom. My mother lived with me for near 8 years before her passing on Valentines day, 2018. She had mild dementia which transgressed in the last 9 months of her life into full sundowners dementia. I was forced to stop work for the last year to fully care for her. Sundowning, is a state of confusion that occurs later in the afternoon and into the night. This state of confusion comprises of a range of behaviors including increased confusion, anxiety and aggression. She suffered all of those. She also had a history of strokes, heart attack and falling. We found out later that the falling part was most likely due to the numerous undetected mini-strokes she had suffered over the years. Anyway, her condition required my 100% attention and care. The sanctuary, which was 3 years old by this time, continued on, but not without some difficulty as I am it's only caretaker.

   My mother LOVED the horses, and she would sit in her room by her window and watch them wherever she could. She did her best to help in its support, and it is named in her honor for the inspiration she gave to me in its creation. 

   After Mom's passing, I have found it quite hard to get back on my feet because there just is so much that requires my attention here with the horses, and my art creations suffer for lack of time to create. I am also spending much more time this winter trying to put what had fallen apart back together again, fencing, field and paddock maintenance, major vetting & farrier costs, and supplying feed & hay. Our hay supplier ran out this winter, and so I have been just scrambling trying to keep hay for these horses available. I work nearly constantly here, and admittedly I need some help to keep this going financially, and continue to provide the care and needs of these horses that call Heart of the Wild home available.

   Donations of even $5 to $20 a month helps us. Hay rolls cost $65 each, and I try to put out 6 at a time for the various paddocks. A roll will generally last 2 weeks per 2 horses. We have had some unexpected vet bills this winter which have also taken its toll, and it is time for the farrier. It seems I am being tested all the way around this winter, but I have no intention of difficult circumstances keeping me from taking care of these horses who call Heart of the Wild home. I will find a way, especially with alittle help from my friends. Currently, we are not a 501c3 non-profit at this time, however, that is one of our primary goals for 2019 so we can not only give lifelong sanctuary and love to the animals that call Heart of the Wild home, but a tax deduction to you as well.

Tiers

I have always referred to the animals in my care as the flowers in my life's garden, so the tiers are named after flowers. :)

Thank you so very much for considering us!
