Help Our Animals Thrive
Sponsor a Hero Program
We have several geriatric horses with physical disabilities who require monthly pain relief medications, joint supplements, and shoeing. We are asking for your help because without proper hoof care and pain medication these horses would not even be able to walk. Your financial commitment can save a life by helping us provide for all of their medical needs. You will receive a periodic update via email on your sponsored horse as medical treatments are performed. You choose your sponsorship amount based on your current financial situation. Every penny helps!
Honey is a Belgian Cross mare who was foaled in 2005. She is currently on pain relief medication due to Laminitis. When we took Honey in she was overweight and her hooves had not been trimmed in appx 5 years. Upon taking x-rays it was discovered that her coffin bone in both front hooves were severely rotated. Honey lived in a round pen for 8 months while we helped her to lose weight by keeping her off of grass and on low starch feed. This was so painful to watch because she just wanted to join the rest of the herd. After 8 months x-rays were taken again hoping that there would be at least a slight improvement. Unfortunately that wasn’t the news we received. Results showed that there had been no change. We were given three choices, either keep her in the round pen for the rest of her life, put her out with the rest of the herd and pray that she doesn’t continue to decline, or humanely euthanize her. We chose to allow her to be a happy horse out grazing in the pasture with the rest of the herd and allow nature to take its course. She is currently on pain relief medication and wears shoes to keep her as comfortable as possible. Honey’s name definitely fits her because she is as sweet as honey! She is fully retired and will continue to graze out in our pasture for as long as she possibly can.
Harley is a Quarter Horse mare who was foaled in 1996. She is currently on pain relief medication due to chronic lameness. Before retiring, Harley was a Champion Jumper. Unfortunately all of those years of jumping took a toll on her body. She is fully retired from riding, however, she is everyone’s favorite horse to read to. She moves her head back and forth as if she is reading along with you. Harley has a heart of gold and will live out the remainder of her days here at the Rescue.
Downtown Abby is a Quarter Horse mare who was foaled in 1997. She is currently on a joint supplement due to joint pain mainly because of her age. She has been retired from trail riding and is only being used for occasional light riding as well as for our ‘Resonating With The Rescues’ program. She has a big personality and loves treats!! She will live out the remainder of her days here at the Rescue.
Peaches is a Quarter Horse mare who was foaled in 2005. She is currently on pain relief medication due to DSLD (Degenerative Suspensory Ligament Desmitis) and has to wear horseshoes to keep her comfortable and her pain manageable. Although she has been fully retired from riding she is used in our ‘Resonating With The Rescues’ program. All of the kids say she looks like a Barbie horse! She will live out the remainder of her days here at the Rescue.

The children come out to the farm to find the peace, calmness, comfort and trust that has been stripped from them due to abuse or neglect; the children that are seeking the love, kindness and acceptance that they have been neglected from; the children who are hoping to build friendships because they are bullied due to neurodiversity; the children who are experiencing sadness because they lost a loved one; the children that need HOPE.
