Our trusty steed has gone out to pasture. 367,000 hard miles he has done. Sadly all the money spent to repair it has failed. We are crippled without it. Soon 125 huge round bales of hay must be brought to feed the horses for winter. We can not move horses around. We have to pay to have that done. The truck is our main piece of rescue equipment. Every day we get calls to help more animals and without a reliable truck we can not go and get them. We have a gofundme set up with a goal of $20,000 . To date $625 has been collected. Can you please help ? Every dollar go towards our goal.

Welcome Three Sixty now renamed Thrixie. 2 other rescues asked if we could take in a pregnant Tb who has been moved around quite a bit recently. Her bail was $1500. She is rumored to have come from a Quarter horse breeding farm. This was very unplanned and our resources are tight with the current hay costs. PLEASE donate what you can for
Thrixie and her foal.
April 2021: Thrixie had and recovered from a case of strangles. Thankfully she has recovered before giving birth. She is due any day.
We saw this cute 12 year old pony while getting the 6 broncs onto their trailer. She is a cutie. Rides nicely. More Buttercup in the future.

For latest information concerning the equine industry related to Covid-19 go to :
Rocky's Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation is a 501c3 non-profit horse rescue ( EIN# 46-5656223) located in Thurmont, Maryland. It is run and cared for with a 100% volunteer staff. We rescue equines from all over the United States to give horses, donkeys, and mules a soft place to land after being abused, neglected, or thrown away at an auction to the highest bidder. We also assist in helping horse owners find a new home for their horse if we are unable to take them in to the rescue.
Our goal as a rescue is to rescue , evaluate , rehabilitate , and find them forever homes. This process can be easy or difficult depending on the needs of the animal rescued. Many of our equines are adopted out to live their lives happy in their forever home. However, some of the equines we rescue can't be homed and these equines will live out their lives at our Sanctuary. Most of our horses, donkeys, and mules can be found on the "Our Horses" tab above.
