To locate and take in all breeds of horses, donkeys, and mules that are abandoned, neglected, abused, unwanted and in danger of going to slaughter. These equine are brought to our facility for TLC, care and support necessary to rehabilitate them from their past cruel experiences. During their stay at the ranch volunteers deliver daily necessary care and natural horsemanship training to restore or gain their trust in mankind. This is a time process that varies for each individual equine mostly dependent upon the severity of their past cruelty. Volunteers then search out the best possible adoptive, loving, forever home, giving them a new outlook on life.
