Wally & Penny passed over in 2016. Their deaths were by euthanasia - to relieve them from suffering. Wally had an enterolith that blocked his intestines. Penny had torn apart the tendons in her front leg and after months of therapies, we could not ask her to endure more. They are buried at Dharmahorse.
All of the horses in Sanctuary at Dharmahorse were unwanted - some simply could not be kept by loving owners whose lives had changed; some were on their way to slaughter... most have come here unsound, unhealthy or neglected, even starved.
All of these horses (with the exception of Dear Strawberry) have responded to the Holistic Health Care and Phytotherapy administered by Katharine and her team.

Damaru was humanely euthanized when her pain became too great. We were all by her side.
Baby/Lady is a Paint mare, now a Dharma Horse, with lung and eye issues to support and heal as she joins our herd!
UPDATE: Baby/Lady passed over in July, her heart gave out, her illnesses were overwhelming.
MOLLY, the world's best mule, has joined us - not because she was unwanted, but because we needed her so much! She takes care of special needs clients and does lessons. She is now the heart of Dharmahorse. >>>>>>>>
LUNA - starved almost to death twice before she turned 3 years old, is recovering now at DH.
Although we are a Sanctuary and do not usually adopt out horses, Grits found a young woman to be his "soul mate".
Update: Grits passed over, RIP dear boy, we wish you had lived a longer, happier life.
Diamond (the horse formerly known as Prince) has come to us from a summer camp in the mountains where his severe ringbone caused him ongoing pain. We have multiple therapies we are implementing for him and the level, soft footing here is a big help for Diamond.
Equines Rescued, in Sanctuary and doing Therapies
Our beloved Majic has passed.
