Sponsor Rusty


Rusty is a retired Standardbred racehorse who came to NLHR host farm Moment’s Peace Farm by way of the Standardbred Retirement Foundation, who rescued him from the kill pen in Pennsylvania. As with all rescues who are saved this way, he spent a month in quarantine before being transported, and was so wary of handlers, they almost couldn’t catch him in time to make the trip north. Now, he’s not only opened up, but follows his handlers around for hugs and a bit of play. He has an endearing manner, and bonds with people easily when he feels safe.

Sponsoring Rusty is a unique opportunity to keep his fun-loving spirit alive. By directly helping Rusty, your generous donation provides his hay and grain, medical support, and farrier care – costs that are directly associated with his care, and which enable him to feel the love he so deserves. Remember, in the NLHR model, we never pay for board – member farms donate that space – so our dollars can go twice as far, providing other care needs for $2,500 a year instead of the usual $5,000 minimum.

Included in Rusty’s regular care is a soothing supplement for ulcers, which Moment’s Peace Farm barn manager Elizabeth had an intuition would help him keep his weight on – and she was right.

In return for your generous support, we can send you regular updates on Rusty’s progress. He loves his caregivers, enjoys his pasture mates, and has a blast trotting out to the “back 40” for some extra fun. Let us know if you’d like to meet him, and we’re happy to arrange a visit.

If you’d like to make a recurring monthly or annual donation, or have corporate matching at your place of employment, contact Joy at joy@nlhr.org. We can enable either of those processes, and provide the necessary documentation for your tax deduction, and to enable your corporate sponsor to add NLHR to your corporate matching database.

Thank you for your kind consideration and support. Rusty is a fun-loving spirit, and he deserves reaffirmation of his faith in humanity.
