Before WHARF Rocket was left alone in a pasture to fend for himself. He was no longer wanted and that meant, no longer cared for. When WHARF came to rescue him he was skinny, wormy and his feet were long. He was scared and alone. When he was rescued 23 dogs were surrendered, WHARF kept eight and the others went to AARCS. Rocket was transported back to the WHARF farm. The Lame and Tame Ranch is a place where all animals can live out their life without fear, without neglect and with plenty of love.
Rocket was treated for worms, groomed, had his hooves trimmed. After that he was put in a pasture with other animals. He is receiving on-going farrier work to get his hooves healthy. He has someone working with him on a regular basis, handling and grooming. Once he is gelded he will be saddle trained.
WHARF has spent hours of time and expensive resources to give Rocket a second chance at a good life. When you donate to WHARF you help give animals like Rocket a second chance.

My daughter is not a registered charity, but she occasionally takes on horses that are neglected. One was a thin mare, and my friend who worked with her said that her first reaction was that the mare should be put down, but for my daughter’s sake she worked with the horse, my daughter saw to it’s care, and in two months the mare was transformed into a sassy riding horse, and is still going strong 5 years later.
You can call Tessa (her number is under contacts) to speak to her about this. Thanks!
