Meet Our Herd!
We have a variety of animals here at the rescue/sanctuary, ranging from 19 hand draft horses to miniature donkeys. Most of our animals come to the rescue after bouncing from auction to auction and living a life of neglect. We provide a safe place for them to land until they can find their forever families or stay here as sanctuary animals. Each animal that is eligible for adoption will leave our farm happy and healthy with up-to-date vaccinations, a current Coggins, and a training and temperament evaluation. If you wish to sponsor one of our animals, please see their profiles below for their individual needs.
Spirit is our 20 year old Percheron gelding, and one of our longest residents at the rescue. Standing at 17.2hh, Spirit is a permanent resident due to his neurological condition called Stringhault. Unfortunately this makes him unable to be ridden, but he is a joy to have on the farm and he sure is easy on the eyes too!
Boomer is a 17 year old Tennessee Walking Horse gelding. He was surrendered to the farm this past summer. Since arriving, he has bonded very well with his herd and loves to eat the pears off the pear tree in his pasture! He is our living Black Beauty and we love seeing him in our pasture.
Cash is a very sweet 26 year old Saddlebred gelding. Cash struggles with Cushings and a low grade heart murmur. Although he has limited time left with us, we are committed to ensuring he stays medicated and fed well. Cash currently eats four meals and over 3 pounds of Alfalfa hay per day!
Lacey is a Haflinger mare and an unbelievable 33 years old! Lacey came to us for retirement after a long and successful career as a therapy horse. She is looking and feeling amazing, and we are happy to provide her with the retirement she deserves!
Freedom came to us through a shelter to shelter transfer from another Humane Society. She is a 22 year old, 14hh, Tennessee Walking Horse mare. She was diagnosed with a condition called DSLD (degenerative suspensory ligament desmitis) which makes her unable to be ridden. She was actually taken off the euthanasia list to come to our rescue. We are honored to be able to support her in her second chance at life!
Dutch is another one of our owner surrenders. He is a 22 year old, 15.2hh, Dutch Warmblood gelding. Dutch had a very successful show career as a Hunter/Jumper before being retired due to arthritis that was progressing to the point of him being unable to ride. His owners wanted the best for him and instead of him being sold or taken to auction, they surrendered him to our rescue so they could be sure he would well taken care of in his golden years.
Z-J is our newest pony to the rescue. He is a Shetland Pony. Z-J will not only be a part of Cassie's Care Farm, he is also in training for therapy and special events! His nickname on the farm is Jay-Z, because he is one cool dude!
Moony is a 23 year old Percheron mare. She arrived at the farm in October of this year with three other Percheron mares after retiring from a carriage business in Florida! She is an incredibly loving and social horse. Be sure to give her some scratches when you come by the farm!
Hamilton & Gwenton are the farm's resident Kune Kune pigs. They are VERY friendly and talkative and LOVE snacks. They can't wait to be moved up for the Care Farm and be constantly doted on by our visitors!
Jack is a Pot Belly Pig, and was an owner surrender. Don't be fooled by people advertising "mini" pot belly pigs! There is no such thing as "mini" or "teacup" pigs, and they will grow to a few hundred pounds VERY quickly. Jack is a shy pig and will continue to live at the farm as a permanent resident.
Petunia was another owner surrender. She is a more introverted pig. She was severely overweight when she arrived and we have since been monitoring her diet. She also had to have her hooves trimmed upon arrival - they were over 3 inches long!
Truffles is a younger pig, that we believe to be a Berkshire cross. She is very sweet and will run across her pen to get scratches and treats. She is also very vocal and will squeal until she gets your attention! She can't wait to make all new friends at Cassie's Care Farm!
Brownie is our 9 year old jenny, and she gets to live her life at the farm being doted on by the kids. She will also be included in the Care Farm once we open in the near future!
Chicken is the tiniest donkey on the farm. He was another shelter to shelter transfer. He was pulled from an auction in Tennessee where he was extremely malnourished. Life was very touch and go for Chicken in the beginning. He missed the transfer to our facility two times due to being too weak to travel. He is now a healthy, spunky little guy who loves attention!
Bill was an owner surrender to the farm. He is an older miniature donkey. He came to us with severe burns on his ears and face from the sun, due to his pink skin. His burns have healed nicely, and he thoroughly enjoys our shaded property. A fun fact about Bill is that he came with a blue ball that he carries around and plays with! Bill can't wait to meet new friends at Cassie's Care Farm!
