Sanctuary at the Rescue

Some of the equines we rescue can't be homed and these equines become part of our Sanctuary.  They enjoy the tender loving care that was often neglected in their previous lives.  Here are their stories...

Rocky

He is a 25 year old Tennessee Walking Horse.  He was the start of the rescue. Rocky would rear and spin whenever someone would try to ride him.  It was through Rocky that we came to realize the importance of dental care.  Now that Rocky's teeth have been tended to many times, Sharon has ridden him multiple times with few issues.  

Rocky is an excellent herd leader. At the Sanctuary, Rocky helps the newer horses settle into the routines of the rescue.

Ethyl and Lucy


Retired mules 

We would like to welcome Bud and Annie to the rescue. Their owner passed away January 1st of this year. We use to buy hay from him and while they would be loading hay, I was off playing with the donkeys.
I told Dick if something ever happened to him that our rescue would take the donkeys in and keep them at the rescue for the rest of their lives. So here they are and right now they are on diets. Lol.

Mrs. Potts


14 yr old Riding Mule Mare

15.2 Hands


She acts timid, but appears to be in excellent shape


She is green broke. Mrs. Potts is scared of people.  Such a shame that an animal has to endure pain and suffering at the hands of a human. 

George is an 8 year old Belgian standing at 19 hands weighing in at 2200 pounds.  Yes we weighed him.   George came to us in grave condition.  Starved seriously neglected and had burns up across his back from a harness being left on way too long.  George still carries those scars today.  George has stringhalt which causes him to walk with a gimp. 

 

 Indy                                                                     She has come so far since July of last year. Indy is a severe cribber and has a mild case of stringhalt so she will be living her life with us.
For the spring, summer and early fall months, she will be staying in the donkey field. During the cooler months and winter she will come back home to our house to be cared for. She is one of the kindest loving mares I have ever had the privilege of knowing.

Grandpa. This sweet  aged ex-Amish work horse has landed softly and will live out the rest of his years with us.
