Bandit was impounded as a starved horse, and threatened with euthanization by another local rescue, due to stallion like behavior. He was a cryptorchid, and S.O.S. funded surgery to remove undescended testicle. He is now the sweetest boy on the farm!
Mona was purchased into rescue after being contacted by a potential buyer who did a pre-purchase exam to see if she was still breedable. She failed the breeding test, so he could not use her in his program, but when the vet said she was so starved she wouldn't make it through the winter, he refused to return her to the seller.
Buttercup and Bailey are two very sweet ponies who were rescued together when their former owner could no longer afford to keep them, and they were being kept in a garage. Both have COPD and require expensive daily medication.
Naughty little Penny was taken in after a woman lost her farm in a divorce. She is a handful, but very entertaining.
Sonata is a beautiful 29 year old broodmare who is living out her retirement years in our sanctuary.
Shahara had an accident as a yearling that left the right side of her face paralyzed. She is a very sweet mare with amazing motion.
