Ferrell Hollow Farm Senior Horse Sanctuary is a 501c3 non-profit organization which cares for special needs senior horses that require a permanent sanctuary setting. We take in horses who have suffered in their former lives--after years of providing hard service to human beings, some were abandoned, some were starved, some were taken to auctions, and some were abused.
All are given the safe and fulfilling retirement that they deserve--with beloved companions, plenty of good food, space to move, regular hoof-care, veterinary and dental attention. Each horse has special needs --arthritis, hoof issues, old injuries, metabolic issues, blindness, dental challenges--and we make sure that each horse gets the individual attention he or she needs.
Your tax deductible donations will help give these special souls what they so deserve!
