Helix, what a spark of Light this wild one is! He is the son of Omega and a half brother to IAm, as the both were sired (in the wild) by the beautiful wild stallion ‘Mateo’. Helix was born here on the sanctuary, only months after IAm … and I truly thought I was seeing double, as he looks exactly like his brother. Just like their mothers, the Soul Sisters, Helix and IAm are completely identical and deeply bonded, yet vastly different in personality and essence.
You may notice Helix has a blue right eye! This is actually not from birth, but a blue scar that is over his eye from an injury he had as a yearling. His eye is healed completely and does not hurt him at all, but he does only have partial vision in it now. However – this surely does not slow him down one bit!
Helix is now building his team of 7 Sponsors. Each Sponsorship is a $50 monthly commitment that goes directly to Helix’s care. We are committed to offering Helix a forever home here at I AM HERD, but we are a non-profit and count on public support to care for this herd. If you feel a connection to Helix and would like to offer him monthly caregiving support please consider becoming his sponsor.

Helix and IAm have grown up together and are so very close. Helix is by far the first one to ‘get into things’ and explore and pave the way to play. Where IAm’s energy is so huge and calm, Helix’s energy coils much tighter. He loves to run – everywhere. He loves to play – with everything. He loves to be first, all of the time. And he loves to be loved on, in fact you can hardly give any other member of the herd attention without Helix getting in the middle of it all! He is quite the character and quite the amazing Being of Light!
His energy is free and wild and seems to always reach upwards into the sky. He even has a giant hair swirl across his back, a very unusual circular direction of hair-growth that spirals around his solar plexus and seems to reach up for the cosmos, just like his energy does. Helix is deeply extroverted, like his mom Omega, and loves to explore life, to live life and the be life in every way he can experience.
Helix is in need of Sponsorship!
Sponsoring an I AM HERD horse or pony is one of the most supportive things you can do for our work and mission. And the most amazing part is the way it truly connects the Caregiver TO the horse or pony they are Sponsoring! These wild ones just know and they are so grateful for Your help!
As a Gift of Gratitude for your Sponsorship, we will mail you a handmade doll in the likeness of your horse or pony! Along with a custom Mustang Mala that is a necklace for the doll and a bracelet for you! We send out additional Gifts of Gratitude throughout the year as well as send you personal updates from your horse or pony!
Above all, you will know that your donation ensures that we can provide the best of care to this wild one that you feel a connection to. Sponsorships are a monthly donation of $50, the cost of a bale of hay, and are a one year commitment. You may opt to have your monthly donation withdrawn automatically or you may pay in full for the year either via check or online credit card. The annual commitment begins the month you begin your Sponsorship (so a Sponsorship initiated in Feb 2020 will run through Feb 2021)
Blessings from this herd to your heart, there is truly a wild horse in all hearts that are drawn to them ~
