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.

Baby/Lady - RIP

Donations feed the horses & pay for Veterinary care.

LUNA - starved almost to death twice before she turned 3 years old, is recovering now at DH.

We are a 501 (c) (3) non-profit Corporation. All donations are tax deductible. 100% of each donation goes to the care, feeding and well being of the horses.

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.

Although we are a Sanctuary and do not usually adopt out horses, Grits found a young woman to be his "soul mate" and we gave him to her and her mother - he has the best home ever and is deeply cherished; deeply happy. If it is best for a horse, we do whatever is necessary  >>>>>>
