The rescue's 1st abused and neglected horse, Chance, was rescued back in 2013. Chance was badly abused and heading for slaughter. The kill-buyer was selling him, afraid that Chance would harm anyone who tried to handle him. We were contacted via a new friend t o see if we would be interested in taking him. We stepped up to the challenge and brought him home. So the rescue begins.
Chance was terrified of people to the point where he would literally shake in fear. Sharon would sit in his stall for hours daily, reading a book, allowing him to start rebuilding trust. Once Chance began trusting he was timid and cautious around new people, but he no longer shook in fear. Chance was a permanent resident at the rescue due to his emotional scars. In April 2018, major arthritic and navicular changes were present., Our veterinarian determined that it was best hance's to cross the Rainbow Bridge after 26 years on this Earth.
Our mission/purpose is to see the rescued equines heal physically, emotionally, and spiritually with placement into responsible, forever, loving homes or sanctuary status.
