Horse rescued from deplorable conditions enjoys life on sanctuary farm

After living in reportedly deplorable conditions for nearly two decades, Sunny the Horse will enjoy a happy, healthy life thanks to a group of devoted lifesavers.

A local woman says the horse had been living in complete isolation on a filthy, 500-square foot concrete slab for almost 20 years. The woman has chosen to remain anonymous to protect her identity.

After a hard-fought battle lasting several months, the owner agreed to surrender the horse. The next step was to raise enough funds to cover Sunny's rapid transition to sanctuary at Ryerss Farm.

Now, Sunny is free to live out the rest of his days on a 400-acre horse farm with over 80 other equine companions currently retired there.

Any additional money collected will be donated directly to the sanctuary to help care for Sunny and the other horses at Ryerss Fram for Aged Equines. To donate or find out more, see here.
