Dollar the horse in these two pictures, came to the rescue May 3rd 07 he lived with us for 45 days then he quietly passed away in his stall.He was the victim of starvation and neglect,and he was only around 9 months old. Some times by the time a equine reaches our gates its too late, we do all we can to make their last days on earth as peaceful and filled with as much love as we can give.

HELP ME PLEASE My name is "Dollar"

Madison was purposely starved and ended up in the condition you see in the pictures. She packed on weight and received lots of TLC, and returned to good health. She past away almost 3 years later from colic. Her life was cut short by several years because of her starvation.

ARE SORRY IF THE PICTURES ON THIS PAGE ARE UPSETTING TO YOU.



A starved equine is not pleasant to look at, but we want you to see reality for what it is. This is what we work with. Most equine are not healthy or happy when they first arrive here, we jump into action right away and start on the healing process of mind and body. That boils down to, 98% of the equine that come through our gates are in need of medical attention and rehabilitation, this is very expensive. This can take months or even years.

..........................................................

This is where you can help, by donating some thing, even a little some thing can go a long way.Be it your time, talents, or what whichever way you feel you can help .

.........................................................

We opened our gates in 2001. We have had over 70 equine be cared for during that time. With an average of 25 here at any given time.

MR. MUDPIE ....



A 34 year old gelding with no back teeth, he cannot eat hay or grass, don't let anyone tell you an older horse is always skinny, these pictures will prove how wrong that is.. he came here in 2005 as a 31 year old, and looks and acts much younger than his now 34 years.

Mr Mudpie came through our gates starved and in need of immediate care. The family who donated him were in over their heads and didn't know how to care for his needs any longer. He had very bad dental health, and because of his advanced age most of his molar teeth (back chewing teeth) were rotted or missing. He could not eat hay, and there fore was starving with food right in front of him.We started him on a food called "One and Only" it looks like doggy kibble but more or less dissolves in the mouth. He was able to eat this and so after a few days his hunger pains began to subside. This food was left out for his to "graze" on. The only complete food we know of that can be fed "free choice". The weight started to be noticeable on him in just two weeks. In 6 months (Nov 05) he has gained almost 280lbs and maintains his weight. He has had a power float and had some more teeth removed. He will never be able to eat hay again. He likes to think he is grazing, but just makes grass balls. With the right food, there never is a reason for an older horse to be thin. Now more than 3 years later he still maintains his weight and looks great.
