Aladdin (Horse)

31 years old

Handsome Aladdin was rescued from a kill auction and came to us with his bonded companion, Jasmine.  Poor Aladdin bears the physical scars from years of abuse, including being blind in one eye.  Nevertheless, he is a gentle, loving horse who is completely devoted to caring for and protecting his blind companion horse.  Aladdin is an Arabian and, even though he's older now,  he's still got a prancing gait that is poetry in motion.  He is as sweet as he is handsome.

Atlas (Horse)

12 years old

Atlas was rescued as a yearling  when his previous sanctuary learned that he was destined to be sold to an unscrupulous trainer who used painful, unethical techniques to create the Tennessee Walker gait.  He came to us with his best friend, Razor, when his previous sanctuary  closed.  Unfortunately,  Atlas has developed EMD so we have to carefully manage his diet and hoof care to avoid painful founder.  He  spends most of his time on the dry lot where he is at least twice the size of every other animal out there but always sweet and gentle with them.  He's a peacemaker among our animals and, although, he's the largest animal at the sanctuary, he is also one of the most gentle.  To know him is to love him.

Flash (Horse)

11 years old

Flash is a little hackney pony who has spent his entire life in rescues and sanctuaries.  We're so sad that he's never really had a family of his own to love but we do everything we can to let him know he is safe and loved here.  Flash has a beautiful, proud little prance and it’s great fun to watch him frolic around the pasture. Flash was very skittish when he first got here. It was terribly difficult to even get him on the trailer to bring him here.  He still thinks it's great fun to try and avoid us when we need to catch him for the vet or farrier.  He has a way of looking you right in the eye when you talk to him.  He's smart, funny and one of a kind.

Jasmine (Horse)

8 years old

Jasmine was rescued from a kill auction with her bonded companion,  Aladdin. Sweet Jasmine came to us in the late stages of recurrent uveitis. She was already blind in her left eye and only able to sense light and shadows with her right eye which was still significantly inflamed and painful.  We treated her with months of eye drops and procedures at Auburn Vet School until she finally is pain free.  Her already compromised vision will continue to deteriorate until she is completely blind but she is an amazingly trusting, calm and gentle horse so we are confident that she will do well with our help and the continued love and protection that Aladdin gives her.  She's a young and otherwise healthy horse and we intend to give her her best life.

Jed (Horse)

7 years old

Jed was one of our very first residents when came to the farm with Maggie.  Jed is a stallion in a miniature body! He thinks he is large and in charge of the barnyard and he likes to strut around so that everyone can see how handsome he is. Jed was the first to bond with Melvin (the mini-donkey) when Melvin first joined us and the two of them are still great friends. Now Jed, Maggie, Oreo and Melvin are always together and we call them the fearsome foursome.

Lady (Horse)

25 years old

Lady is among the sweetest horses we have ever met.  She was seized by animal control in Florida so skinny that all of her ribs showed and her hooves had been neglected for so long that they were curved upward.  She was temporarily placed in a loving foster home until an unexpected judge's order sent her to immediate auction where she would almost certainly be sent to slaughter.  Her foster mom could not allow this to happen so she scraped up some cash, raced to the auction and purchased her with the plan to send her here to live out the rest of her years.  Despite everything Lady has been through, she loves everyone - every animal and human that she meets.  We adore this sweet girl and intend to spend the rest of her life making her forget about all of the awful things she suffered before coming to us.

Maggie (Horse)

7 years old

Maggie came here with Jed and she’s the only one who can put him in his place. Jed never messes with Maggie when she’s trying to eat. Maggie has the most beautiful blue eyes and she even has black eyeliner that makes them really pop. She’s a looker! Although Maggie came with Jed, when she met Oreo, she found a true BFF and the two of them are frequently seen grooming each other. Now Jed, Maggie, Oreo and Melvin are always together and we call them the fearsome foursome.

Oreo (Horse)

24 years old

Oreo came to the farm with her best friend, Roy, a very senior donkey, who died a year later. Oreo was just skin and bones when she was originally rescued by a humane society in northern Indiana. They got her healthier and then she came to live out her life here. We know that she went through a lot before she got here and she has an old injury to one of her eyes which limits her sight to some degree. She is a little shy, especially with new people, but she is very responsive to gentle words and will usually follow me without a lead – just some quiet coaxing and soft touches. From the minute that Oreo saw Maggie and Jed across the fence line, she knew that she had found her soul mates so she’s now part of the fearsome foursome with Jed, Maggie, and Melvin.

Razor (Horse)

12 years old

Razor was rescued by Lester and Diane from a terrible situation where he was being neglected by people and attacked by other horses as the smallest, weakest horse in the pasture.  He was supposed to be a temporary foster but he and Atlas bonded so tightly that they couldn't be separated so Razor came to us with Atlas when Lester and Diane retired.  Razor is as sweet as they come but has a touch of mischief in him too.  He loves to tease the other animals and play with the donkeys but he's always gentle and mindful of his size.  He adores Atlas and the two of them are obviously BFFs.  Sweet Razor still bears a few physical scars from his difficult earlier life but now he knows nothing but love and kindness.

Renny (Horse)

25 years old

Renny is an appaloosa who had a history of cancer and the inability to keep weight on his bones. Everyone thought he had metastatic cancer and a limited life span and we considered him a hospice horse when he came to live with us in the summer of 2018. After lots of time in our lush green pasture , plenty of oats and food supplements, Renny has actually become “borderline chubby” according to our vet who can find no signs of cancer! He is obviously a beautiful horse but he’s just as sweet inside – with a gentle, calm nature that makes him a joy to be around.

Squirrel (Horse)

22 years old

After being rescued from an abusive trainer, Squirrel spent many happy years with a loving owner.   They both got older and his owner made the decision that it would be best for her to move closer to her children in the Northeast but best for Squirrel, who was aging and had developed Cushings, to stay at his boarding facility in Texas where he was used to the warmer weather.  His owner worked extra jobs to pay for his boarding and care until it was no longer possible.  It's not easy to find a home for an older horse but no stone was left unturned and Squirrel landed here in April, 2021.  He's the strong, silent, calm type  - a true gentle giant.  We're thrilled to be his forever retirement home.
