Meet our newest rescue “Carrie”
Running an end-of-life rescued animal sanctuary has its rewards and heartaches. So many of our rescues needed a final home and have since passed over the Rainbow Bridge, with us at their side. Our newest, soon to be, resident of Horse Creek Stable Bed & Breakfast is Carrie, a neglected female llama that suffered temporary paralysis to her mouth due to heat stroke brought on by improper care, namely a failure to have her sheared in the hot summer months. She was seized by animal control, cared for and rehabilitated while a long drawn out court case waged against her previous owner. Thanks to South East Llama Rescue, now that the court case is settled, she will be transferred to us for forever foster care as she will always be at risk of a relapse. Like many of the rescued animals here on our farm and featured in our children’s book “Tricycle and Friends,” Carrie will be loved, cared for and well socialized with guests and visitors alike. Part of the joy of what we do is to open our doors to children with special needs that can come and interact with our rescues. It is both therapeutic for the children as well as our animals. Love does so much!
Our mission is expensive but some of the cost is offset by our one room farm stay bed & breakfast. With incredible reviews on TripAdvisor, Horse Creek Stable Bed and Breakfast is now a very popular destination for many seeking an agritourism stay. Visits are free for children with special needs, but tour donations from other visitors to the animal feed fund are always welcome.
