Rescue Friends

In Memory of Dolly
Dolly was a rescue from a slaughter truck. She was bound for auction, where most horses end up food for other animals. She is over 20yo and has Melanoma and is what's called a Sway Back. You can see how her back curves Down, instead of a more straight line. Her Melanoma has created several Cysts throughout her body. She is gentle and despite her size is lowest on the totem pole amongst the herd. She tends to hang out with Clover, Dakota and Penny. 
Dolly lost her battle with cancer in August of 2022. She is loved and missed dearly, but we are happy that she was able to spend her final years surrounded by her Charming Family. 

​Clover arrived with Dolly off the slaughter truck. She is about 9yo, but has arthritis in her back, making anyone over 100lbs too heavy for her. She enjoys children and pets. 

​Dakota belongs to our manager, Becca. She is a rescue from Wildhorse Ranch rescue. 

In Memory of Pokey
Pokey arrived here a few years ago along with his buddy, Caesar. Caesar was a retired barrel racer and was almost 40yo when he arrived, he lived here till his last days on this earth. He's missed and loved every day.

In Memory of Caesar 
Caesar arrived with Pokey in 2019. He was a 40+ year old retired barrel racer. He was super sweet and we were honored to offer him a soft place to land for his last couple years. 

Sebastian was saved from the kill pen. At only about 6 years old, he has lots of life and love yet to give. We are working on getting him Gelded, so he can play with all the ponies. 

Donkey Is a young Mini Donkey that was rescued from the kill pen. He has done some driving, and is haltered trained. 

Cupcake was saved from the kill pen at the last moment. We took her in to save her from demise. She's a sweet little girl who needs lots of love and caring. She is currently training to be able to go to hospitals to bring a smile to patients faces.

Pua'a the pig came to live with us when his family went into service for our military and had to move across country. He's very shy, and doesn't let us pet him. But, he enjoys laying in his mud pit and getting yummy treats. 

Freddy came to us when his family was moving. He's a neutered Kune Kune pig & he and Pua'a have become fast friends. 

Ducks & Chickens
Several of our ducks & chickens are rescues from people who had to move or that were unable to care for them any longer for various reasons. 

All of our bunnies have come to us from homes, that were no longer able to care for their buns. They enjoy being in the barn and having access to enclosed grassy and outdoor areas. While you may see some bunny holes in the middle of one of their outdoor enclosure areas, there is wire around the perimeter on the ground that prevents them from digging out. All of our rescue bunnies are females to try to prevent unplanned baby buns. 

You can now donate directly to the rescue via our Rescue PayPal or see our Amazon Wish list to help us with items for our Feathered & Furry Friends.
