For many years, wildlife photographer John Wagner, has been documenting the extraordianary wild Mustangs and other indigenous critters of the Sand Wash Basin in Colorado, through his captivating photographs. As part of our American Heritage, these special wild horses are very important to thousands of people, and many have become aware of them through John's books, prints and online presense. As the bands of horses continuously change, it's important that they're documented through photographs. This allows for excellent record-keeping by groups and individuals, like John and "The Three Amigos" he's a third of (all excellent photographers in their own right), dedicated to protecting and preserving this unique group of horses. It also means the world to him, to be out on the range with the horses he loves so dearly.

With the rising cost of living, exorbitant gas prices and no vehicle to drive out to the SWB, it's no longer possible for John to photograph these horses. Gas is needed (when a vehicle can be borrowed) and the drive is long. But more importantly, a vehicle is needed. So NOW is the time for us, his friends, to help him to continue his invaluable work behind the lens of his camera. Please, give what you can....no amount is too small.....or big! If by chance, you know of someone with a road-worthy vehicle (it doesn't need lots of bells and whistles) they would be willing to donate or even lend for an amount of time, that would be a true Godsend!

As a friend of John's I felt compelled to start this fundraiser as he has given so much to so many, but rest assured, your contribution will go directly to John's Paypal account. Thank you so much for any amount you're able to contribute. God Bless.
