How You Can Help Make a Difference & Protect Missouri’s Wild horses

Tim Layton - Wild Horses of Missouri -

Hi, my name is Tim Layton, and I am a wild horse conservation photographer.

I am on a mission to defend Missouri’s wild horses by protecting their freedom, preserving their habitat, and raising awareness.

My vision is eternal freedom, protection, and preservation of Missouri’s wild horses for current and future generations.

I am documenting the story of Missouri’s wild horses so they won’t be forgotten or pushed to the background in our busy world.

I believe the more people know about the Wild Horses of Shannon County, Missouri, the better chance they have to survive in the future because we know that people protect what they love.

Learn why awareness is a key strategy in helping protect wild horses and why I became a wild horse conservation photographer.

There are several different ways that you can help the wild horses. Most people won’t take the time to help, but for the few of you that do, I want you to know that I appreciate it and your help and support matters. We are doing something positive and trying to improve the world.

You can directly help our wild horses and make a difference in the world in the following ways.

1 – Share This Website With Your Friends, Family, and Anyone That Loves Horses

The more people know about Missouri’s wild horses, the more likely we will have enough people fight for their freedom when the next removal attempt happens again. Learn more about the details of why awareness is so helpful in protecting wild horses. By joining my newsletter, you will be notified when I publish new articles, photos, and videos to help you stay connected to the wild horses all year long. If there are any urgent matters with the horses that you need to know, the newsletter is how I communicate these updates. Share this website with your friends, families, and anyone who loves wild horses.

I am a sales affiliate for Amazon and B&H Photography. At no additional cost to you, when you use these links before making a purchase, I will earn a small commission that is reinvested into documenting the horses and telling their stories. Bookmark these links and use them every time you make a purchase.

It is an expensive endeavor to track, monitor, and report on the current status of the wild horses. I would be grateful if you could help offset some of these expenses with a donation. You can make a donation of any size to me via PayPal.

You can buy a beautiful print of the wild horses and help support the mission. I invest 100% of the proceeds back into tracking, monitoring, and telling their stories.
