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...
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.

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.
Clint aged at 25 will be living the rest of his life at the sanctuary. He has cellulitis in his right hind.
Update: Clint has been transferred to Gentle Giants Rescue who has the larger volunteer base to keep his cellulitis treatment controlled, We thank them and wish him happy trails.
