"He knows when you're happy.    He knows when you're comfortable.   He knows when you're confident.  And he always knows when you have carrots."  Author Unknown

Feeding the horses is one of the most important jobs at the sanctuary. This is the time of day when each horse receives individual attention. 

Each horse is fed a diet specially formulated for its needs.  Then each horse is checked over for any injury or sign of disease and treated accordingly.  Water tubs are filled and feed bins are refilled.  With anywhere from 40-45 horses on site, this proves to be a daunting task...and many of our feeders perform this task more than once a week!   Needless to say, we welcome dedicated individuals that would like to help feed the horses at the sanctuary.

Most of the horses are fed twice a day.  Morning feed usually starts at 7-8 a.m. and finishes around noon.  Evening feed starts between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.   Please contact the sanctuary if you would like to help!
