The babies are doing so well and growing so fast and the mothers are taking great care of them!


Natural Horse Supply has been so kind as to donate all the proceeds of their discontinued rope to Hooved Animal Rescue. If you are in need of any rope or know of anyone that might be this would be a great opportonity to help out HAROTC and get some rope at the same time.

"I have both black and white with a blue tracer, 5/8" double braid nylon rope just waiting for the do it yourself people.. (Please note that this rope measures more like 3/4" in diamater although it is purchased as 5/8"). If you know how to splice rope, or you would like to use a rope clamp, this is your oportunity to make it yourself.

There is a limit of 50' per purchase. Anything over that amount will be refunded and you will be asked to make another transacation to complete the balance.. You will not be able to add this to your cart with other purchases in order for me to ensure all proceeds go where they are intended."

We get all kinds of young flashy horses in that everyone oohs and aahhs over but nobody pays attention to the old, senior ones. They’re the "throw away" bunch. We never thought we’d find someone willing to take on Jim and give him a forever home for his remaining years. We were WRONG!!!!! Thankfully, Mary found it in her heart to take Jim and let him live in her green pastures. Since Jim has anxiety issues if he can’t see the other horses he also has a new pasture buddy so he’s fit and happy. Jim came to us along with a miniature stallion the end of October ‘10. They were forgotten in a back field. Now he’s fat and happy and living the good life.
