Will you be the 100th Monkey?
Have you ever wondered how change happens? Well, research shows that one of the elements in change is a phenomenon called the 100th Monkey Effect. This is a phenomenon in which a new idea or behavior is said to spread rapidly from one group to another by somewhat unexplained means, but only once a critical number of participants accepts and exhibits the new idea or behavior. (You can learn more about it here: http://www.wowzone.com/monkey.htm )
Now back to you being the 100th Monkey.
Many times we think we cannot save the world or even do something less significant, but this phenomenon proves that yes, you can save the world. All it takes is a little bit involvement and education to absorb a new idea and consciously spreading it.
Free Choice and Force Free
I know you don't believe it, but yes, your horse can have free choice and will choose to collaborate with you in a force free manner. Dale Rudin and other Positive Reinforcement Trainers are mastering and teaching this technique and it is indeed a new day for all horses. Here at Pure Joy Horse Haven all our rescues are taught and treated within this paradigm and it is our hope that they will be the bearers of this new way of life, for themselves and those that come after them.
How you can help
Volunteer - Money Donations - Goods Donations - Spread the Word
If you are a horse person, you know how much money and effort it takes to create a healthy environment for horses. We need all the help we can get.
Come volunteer with us, even if you only come once a month. We have physical tasks that will get you off the sofa into the great outdoors and we have tasks for those that may not want to directly interact with our horses or may not be close enough in location. We can accommodate those that have no horse experience or those that are very comfortable around horses. We will even teach you our techniques of horse care that will improve your relationship with your own horses and humans. Our mobile Volunteer Interaction software is ready for use and you can submit your application here: https://www.volgistics.com/ex/portal.dll/ap?ap=1575645198
Give us the gift of care through your money donations. Use our Donate button at the top of the website and commit to helping us with the cost of our horses and expanding our facilities for others to be saved as well. The smallest amount makes a difference to us!
Very soon we will have a webpage with a registry of what we need in goods for our horses. Perhaps you can buy a bag of alfalfa or a supplement we use and save us that cost in purchasing it. Stay tuned for these updates.
Spread the word and be that 100th Monkey. We will have free events for our Herd on a regular basis. Everyone will be welcome and can come see what we do and how we do it.
We are committed to keeping our overhead as low as possible so that the money can go directly to our horses in need. More about this later, once we receive the approval for our 501c3 designation.
