These horses are our permanent residents. They are the horse who, due to health issues, age, etc. we feel are not suitable for adoption and need a nice peaceful retirement at Hope's Legacy. Please consider sponsoring one (or more!) of these wonderful horses. Monthly sponsorships start as low as $10 a month. Expenses for these horses usually run about $200 a month.
Van, a 35 year old Appendix Quarter horse gelding, was a beginner lesson horse for 25 years. After his retirement, the farm owner was planning to send him to auction. A family member stepped in and brought Van to us instead. Van has few teeth left and is unable to eat hay. He gets large amounts of soaked feed. This feisty guy is quite the character and a big favorite of everyone who meets him. Thank you to Paula Eager for your generous sponsorship and loving care of Van!
DONKEY AND DOLLY
Donkey is an elderly survivor of the Peaceable Farm case from October 2015. He will be living out his life as a mascot and ambassador for Hope's Legacy. This small, yet very opinionated charmer loves meeting new people. Dolly came to Hope's Legacy from the Virginia Donkey Rescue to be Donkey's companion. He likes horses, but they're just not the same as having his very own donkey friend who never leaves him. Please consider sponsoring Donkey and Dolly with a monthly donation.
Cindy is a 20+ year old Peaceable Farm survivor. Due to some behavioral issues she was not suitable for adoption, however she is thriving, living out her days with lots of green grass and her new friends Oz and Van.

Meet Amber Three. She came to Hope's Legacy from Orange County Animal Control in April of 2015. It is hard to see how thin she truly was when she arrived because of her thick winter coat, but she was very thin and completely covered in lice. Several good medicated baths, lots of food and even more love turned Amber into the princess she is today.
On Christmas of 2015 Amber found her people when she was adopted by the Thomas Family. They volunteer with Hope's Legacy and fell in love with her. Amber was their daughter Taylor's first horse, together they have galloped through fields, competed in the show ring and at hunter paces and spent countless hours just enjoying one another's company.
