Where Hope Takes Flight Our first rescue was Otis, an older draft mule that was about to be put on a truck to Mexico for slaughter. He is HUGE, and the most gentle guy you could imagine. His knees hurt him and so we wanted to give him wings while he lives out his life here, with us. Read the Full Story

We started rescuing horses that were headed to slaughter in the Spring of 2015 and quickly found that the horses had begun to affect us in ways we hadn't expected. We feel that the relationship between a person and a horse mirrors that of God and Man.

When the horses arrive at at ranch, they are scared and often injured. The world has beaten them up and thrown them away and they are slow to trust us. But through quiet, daily contact (and feed, lots of feed) we slowly break through their fears and are able to set them on their journey to being well adjusted and useful -- just as God wants us to be. It didn't take long for us to realize that this bond was the perfect way to minister to others who were hurting, who abused and thrown away. By sharing the love of these horses with those in need, we hope to remind ourselves to trust in the Shepherd who watches over us.
