Meet Moon

With her sweet disposition, you would never guess that this 19-year-old mare has suffered severe neglect and abuse. When she was confiscated from a drug cartel, poor Moon had been severely neglected and physically abused. She was starving, emaciated, and as it was soon discovered…pregnant. She had also been badly beaten in the face, which permanently damaged her tear ducts.

Fortunately, despite her advancing age and the neglect and abuse she suffered, Moon was able to carry to full term and deliver a beautiful, healthy foal while healing and recovering. The foal stayed with Mom until it was weaned and then
was adopted to a loving home. Moon continued to heal and put on weight while at our partner rescue center.

Moon is now flourishing at Sanctuary One! She settled right in and, other than needing to use face wipes daily for her compromised tear ducts, she is relatively healthy and getting stronger every day.

After introducing Moon to the other resident horses over the fence, we recently turned her out to the pond pasture with them and the goats and pigs. Moon has overcome so much adversity, and yet she is so kind and forgiving. She is still comfortable around people despite how she was once treated. At Sanctuary One, Moon is experiencing love, safety, nutritious food, and excellent care. Now that she is at a healthy weight, Moon is available for adoption to a loving, forever home. She will only be rehomed as a companion horse, she is not sound for riding. Fill out an application for this sweet mare today:
