We strive to provide a natural setting for horses that are recuperating from neglect. In doing so, we have four separate grazing areas. Each of these areas has specific horses separated by personality type, feed need, medical need, and/or rebuilding trust and human contact need.
Each horse is given a specific diet necessary to meet each horse's needs from hay amount to grain and supplements. Their teeth are provided dental care, hooves are trimmed, and vaccines are provided.
We allow each group outdoor time as often as possible to embrace their need to be with other horses in a safe herd environment.
Most horses are blanketed through inclement weather. This is a way to manage their weight, rather than their ability to be out in all weather conditions. As horses become cold, they utilize their feed intake and any fat stores to thermoregulate their bodies. These horses generally have no fat, nor a way to take in enough feed to gain weight to keep themselves warm in cool to cold temperatures. Without blankets, they would continue to lose weight, despite adequate feed.
We hope you can help these horses with your financial contribution. They need your help.
