Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, retrain, and rehome horses, to provide a permanent sanctuary for horses that are not capable of being rehomed, and to educate the public in the care and training of horses using intuitive horsemanship. Read more
Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, retrain, and rehome horses, to provide a permanent sanctuary for horses that are not capable of being rehomed, and to educate the public in the care and training of horses using intuitive horsemanship.
Officially established on December 19th, 2013 began a few years earlier with the adoption from a horse rescue of an awesome, gorgeous, loveable, big personality pure black Morgan Horse named Midnight. Since then a few 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 about Tiny-Tim Too!
We came to realize that we could do more for these horses and more horses if we just had some help. We are combination of Vet Techs, Vet Assistants, Horse Sport Competitors, Horse Trainers, Educators, Animal Behaviorists, and Business Managers. We banded together and here we all are!
The farm we rent is 30 acres with a bank barn. Twelve acres is fenced in and we are planning on fencing in another ten. We will need the fence posts & rails, four more run-in-sheds, water troughs, and round bale holders. To help run the operation we need a four-wheeler, a large cart for the four wheeler, and a large deck mower.

Wow... what a great place for both young and old to volunteer!
This organization is large enough that they have a wide variety of horses, yet small enough that you get as much hands-on time with the horses as you want. ...and what personalities the horses have! There is always a little something that needs to be done, even if it's only visiting the horses or cleaning a stall or two.
This has been a great way for me to make a meaningful contribution while also learning new things, and getting a little some exercise and fresh air.
