Donk a Crooked Leg Donkey We found a little white donkey in a pen of horses bound for the auction. The owner told us he was hurt in donkey roping. His front leg looks to have been broken and healed crooked. We had the vet look at it and unfortunately nothing can be done for him. He seems happy and not in pain. We are his "forever home".
Buttercup Left in an Abandoned Lot Buttercup is a sanctuary horse. She has arthritis in her feet and can no longer be a barrel horse, cutting horse or go for long rides. One of her prior owners kept her in a city pen and slowly starved her. When she was saved, she was purchased to be a barrel racer. She quickly went lame and her owner wanted to "get rid" of her. Buttercup came here as a sanctuary horse. Not knowing what she would be good for, we just let her adjust to her new environment. We knew she could not carry any weight, but she was a great riding horse. We decided to try her with small children (under 70 pounds). WOW! She excelled! The kids had a great time and she was so proud carrying them around the pasture. Buttercup is now available for parents to have their small children enjoy riding.
