Hoofbeats Second Chances Inc. Rescue Program for Horses and Ponies in need.
We are Proud to present our program for horses in need. We are a new non-profit. This program will help many horses get healthy and find new homes. We also have some permanent residents that will always be here with us. the permanent residents are older horses that require special diets and such, one is a 32-35 yr old Quarter horse named Chance he is a wonderful guy he has bad teeth what is left of them. Chance still enjoys going down the trail and running barrels with my daughter for fun. Godiva is a 25yr old Hanoverian Mare that came to us after being bred to many times and starved, she was about a 1-2 on the health scale she is making great progress putting weight on. Godiva was a 4th level Dressage horse and jumped the moon. Now she will help teach kids in our riding program when she is nice and healthy, as she is very sweet mare. These two will never leave us. We have had people show up in our driveway with horses and even tied to our gate we hope with our program that we will be ableto help even more horses this year. If you know of a horse that needs to be helped or have a horse you can no longer afford you can call us to help. We can pick up horses. Also if anyone would like to donate to help the horses feel free to contact us and come see the horses. We can always use anything to help. During the summer we will have a petting zoo for kids and adults, we will also do birthday parties here to help benefit the animals as they are all rescued farm animals.We have added a donation page for anyone who would like to help these and other horses in need. Thanks for reading about this program.
Godiva is a purebred white/gray hanoverian mare, who is as sweet as can be. She is around 26 and was severely starved while pregnant and even after the baby was born. She was a 4th level dressage horse, and spent most of her life trying to please her owners but then was left to rot. When we got her she has hundreds of pounds under weight. UPDATE: Godiva is now on a all cube diet along with her new buddy Chance and they get turned out into a grassy pasture to graze here are some newer pictures:
