8yr old Arabian Cross mare. This sweet girl came to us emaciated and in need of multiple, extensive procedures to correct damage to her leg from being entangled in barbed wire fencing over a year ago. She will receive that care, a complete physical, vaccinations, de-worming and long overdue farrier work. Honey has a long road ahead of her, but considering all that she has endured, we are hopeful for a beautiful new beginning and a life of love and good health from here. We will share her journey as we embark on an extensive treatment program along with our veterinarian to bring healing to her leg and nourishment to her body.
The extensive procedures required to repair Honey's leg have been estimated at approximately $5,000.oo.

7 yr old Arabian Mare ~ Ginger is a sweet, gentle girl with a spring in her step. A quick learner and eager to please, she easily took to training under saddle. An excellent horse for a rider with some experience, she has also been started over jumps.
13 yr old Mare ~ Faith was malnourished and in need of a complete physical, vaccinations and farrier work. Through our joint effort with Florence Area Humane Society, she is now completely rehabilitated. Faith does have an issue with a tendon from a previous injury, so will likely be best as a light riding trail horse or a calm pasture mate. We are in the beginning stages of our evaluation of her demeanor and knowledge, but look forward to getting very well acquainted with this beauty.
23 yr old Mare ~ Ivy came to us via surrender. She was on a dirt lot and being fed only straw. She lacked vaccinations, farrier care, dental care and proper nutrition. In spite of her unhealthy state, she has the sweetest mannerisms and the light we see in her eyes is one of gratitude. She has begun her physical rehabilitation and will be fully vetted and get an enormous amount of love and care on the farm. We can't wait to see her transformation!
4Yr Old ~ Jackson was gelded shortly after his arrival. We do this to ensure no breeding because there are so many unwanted or neglected horses as it is. He has had a full physical, vaccinations and has now had his hooves trimmed. He is enjoying his large pasture of grass and the ability to exercise. He often runs and nickers at the mares on the farm. We have changed his diet and will begin working on desensitization and socialization with him.
Phoenix "On the Cue Tee"
6Yr Old QH Mare ~ Phoenix was facing slaughter. Phoenix has had a complete physical, vaccinations and farrier work. She is being evaluated at the rescue to address a few ground issues. We look forward to working with this beautiful mare in her mental and physical rehabilitation.
10 Yr Old Medicine Hat Mare ~ This blue eyed, flashy girl was brought in severely emaciated in the upstate. Through a joint effort with Florence Area Humane Society, we now have Hope at the farm. She is up to date on vaccines and we are beginning her ground work evaluation. We look forward to getting to know this gorgeous mare and unveiling a bright and full future for her.
4yr old Gelding ~ Dudley had little to no handling. He was gelded shortly after his arrival, and has been seen by the veterinarian, had a previous injury treated, and has had his hooves trimmed. He is now up to date on vaccinations and getting a lot of one on one time with our volunteers to help him learn to trust people. He has come so far, so quickly.
8 yr old Dark Bay QH Cross Mare ~ Cricket has suffered incredible trauma in her short life. A pretty, sweet little horse with great ground manners. She is currently unridable due to past abuse, but she has great value as a pasture mate. She gets along well with other horses, is friendly with people, an easy keeper, and gorgeous to look at.
20 year old Gelding ~ This little guy has been a long time love of ours at the rescue. With a super find size and loving attitude, Skye will stand for days to be loved on and groomed. A definite head turner and volunteer favorite.
4 yr old Mare ~ Mabel came into the Florence Area Humane Society upon rescue along with Blue, a mustang, believed to be her mother, and was then transferred to H.O.P.E. Acres as part of our partnership.
Part of rescue involves making assessments of each animal to determine their likeliness to be adopted to a forever home. Occasionally our consensus is to provide that forever home to the horse at H.O.P.E. Acres. The horses that are offered a life-long stay are unique ones who need long term medical care, treatment of life threatening illness, a life of leisure due to age or inability to take a rider because of physical or medical limitations. This is part of our commitment to ensure those who have suffered neglect, abuse or tragedy in their lives never again find themselves in harms way, without the care that they need and deserve. There is never a guarantee upon intake that these beautiful souls will find a family capable or well-suited to provide this, so our decision to take a rescue includes that forever care when necessary.
14.2h, 27 yr old Bay Mustang Mare ~ This sweet girl has had a rough life and needed sufficient nutritional care and a place to retire. She came in severely emaciated, in need of vaccinations, farrier work, dental work and a worming regimen. Because of her physical abuse, Sage has had a hard time learning to trust again, however over time, she has allowed a select few into her life and these volunteers love and care for her immensely.
29 yrs old Tennessee Walker ~ Such a sweet older gentleman. Shadow loves to be groomed and pampered and is a volunteer favorite! A hitch in his shoulder prevents riding. He receives regular therapy stretches and exercise to keep his mobility up.
