Serenity horses live on a 10 acre farm and like most farms maintenance and upkeep are part of the daily routine.  We start our mornings every day turning out our horses from the barn, feeding and then cleaning each and every stall.  Each horse stall is bedded with shavings and buckets are washed and refilled with water. 

Horses that are currently being rehabilitated or those that require medical attention are moved to a clean stall and treated.

Once we have completed the barn we move on to the other parts of the farm.  All loafing sheds, shelters, and paddocks are cleaned.  Water troughs scrubbed and refilled, and any other maintenance, such as fixing fences, stacking hay, repairing equipment is started. 
Keeping a farm running is a complex and time consuming business.  There are no idle days on the farm.  Still, each day, rain or shine, our volunteers are here working to sustain the farm and our wonderful horses.

We cannot do it without your help.  Feeding and rehabilitating horses while maintaining our farm is not only time-consuming but expensive.  Our volunteers work tirelessly.  Wont you help them to do this very important work and donate to Serenity today?  
With gratitude, 
Patricia Clark, Executive Director

        Sponsor or foster a horse


        If you are interested in supporting a horse, but you are unable to adopt one, please consider sponsoring one of our special equine friends. Learn more about opportunities to sponsor a horse here.


        Fostering is another great way you can help Serenity by making room for us to save another horse's life. If you have the facilities and time to care for a horse, but are not ready for the lifelong commitment that comes with adoption, please consider fostering one of our residents. It's also a good way to get to know a horse you are considering adopting. If you are interested in fostering a horse, please email Patricia at
