Kindness Ranch is located on a 1000 acres in S. Wyoming. So far this week we have had 4 separate fires breakout very near the ranch due to the severe thunderstorms we had on Sunday, August 18th. Lightening was striking all around us, we witnessed a strike hit the hill above the ranch on our neighbor’s property, and within minutes a pine tree was on fire! Across the road was another fire. On Tuesday, winds kicked up and smoldering from a lightning strike, flamed up and here comes two more fires! These were to the west of us and nearby, luckily the winds didn’t change directions. All of the fires were put out quickly, we have been very lucky and very appreciative of our local fire departments (mostly volunteers!) for doing such an incredible job protecting the community and forests.d the corner! Kindness Ranch needs your help!
Here is how we need your help! Our rear blade on our farm tractor has ceased and is not repairable. We have more fire lines to make along our roads and new brush to be cleared out of the horse corrals. This blade is a critical part of our fire mitigation, clearing weeds along roadsides and corrals, maintaining our gravel roads all over the ranch, and it is our snow plow during bad winter storms! This last spring in April, we had a storm that brought 2 feet of snow overnight!
This equipment assists us with so many critical aspects in keeping our facilities for our animals accessible and safe. Right now fire is the most immanent danger to our sanctuary.
What we need: 8 foot wide rear blade for farm tractor, rugged enough to match 75 HP tractor. Estimated Cost $1,100.00
