Our horses come from many different situations and in many different stages of neglect or abuse. Some are relinquished to the sanctuary, others may come from animal control and some are pulled from kill pens just hours before slaughter. We provide these horses a refuge where they can rehabilitate from both physical and psychological abuse.
Our horses live in small bands based upon their age and needs. They are allowed to live as horses upon sunny, rolling green fields with peaceful nooks under shady tree canopies. Horses are fed twice a day with a diet specifically tailored to each horse's special need in individual stalls or runs then turned out for the day to graze and just be a horse. Each little band has its own barn or shelter to go into whenever it likes.
As each horse returns to health, they are evaluated by horse professionals such as veterinarians, farriers, chiropractors, trainers and the people who know them best so that the best match can be made between the horse and its new home. Adoption is by application with a probationary period of one year. Once probation is completed, the adopter receives full ownership of their horse. Should the owner ever decide to part ways with their horse, Midnight's Promise has First Right of Refusal.
Some of our horses are in rehabilitation but if you are interested in a horse, you may contact us, and we will let you know when the horse is ready to be placed for adoption.
