While officially established on December 19, 2013, Midnight’s Equine Rescue and Sanctuary began a few years earlier with the rescue of an awesome, gorgeous, loveable, big personality pure black Morgan Horse named Midnight. Since then, more rescued horses, ponies, and mini-horses have made their way to the farm and into our lives and hearts.
On November 3rd, 2013, Midnight passed-away from complications from colic. Later that week, we heard of a horse that was completely healthy and just six years old that was at a kill buyer's farm ready to be shipped to the slaughter-house. Well, when we went to pick her up, for the price of $700.00, there was a Belgian Draft Horse next to her that had a face that would melt a stone-heart. So that's how we came to rescue Tiny-Tim, too!
We came to realize that, with a little help, we could do more for these and other abandoned horses. Since then, over the years, a combination of veterinarian technicians, horse trainers, educators, students, retirees, homemakers, and even musicians and a yoga teacher have stepped up to help. Together, we do good for horses on a rented 30-acre farm in the country.
