The Golden Carrot

is a forever home for older and manageably disabled horses, fully supported by the kind and generous donations of the public. As these horses are difficult to place in knowledgeable and responsible homes, they can depend on a final retirement here.   However, as a service to the community, we will help people who are trying to  place their healthy horse in a new home by working with other rescues.  If you need such help, please send pictures of your horse and history of experience and physical abilities/disabilities including age, as well as your ability to transport or provide ongoing support in any amount, to  - we'll do our best to help you.

Join us today in our efforts to save those unloved, unwanted, unsafe equines, who deserve a better chance at life.

Donate if you can. Volunteer if you can. Spread the word!


Foaled in approximately 1987
15.3 hh Black mare
Possibly Paint or Appaloosa breeding

Daisy was rescued from her former home by Animal Services in Riverside. They found one dead horse, and a bunch of pigs who had been starved to death on the property, as well as Daisy and 4 other horses, much younger. AS took the picture above of Daisy a month after they rescued her, December 29, 2009.

A little lean, toes a little long, and a little detached, but…  Below is Daisy right after she arrived here, a month later:

And here is Daisy in the next few days.  A very lovely elegant girl, with very good ground manners, and a strong personality – she is already lead mare in the mini-herd of her, Anaba and Oso.

The picture above shows Daisy waiting for feed, and shows that 1/2 blue eye of hers.  Interesting for me to get two mares in one month who have the same eye anomaly. Below, Daisy canoodles with volunteer Danielle…

Daisy and Anaba know that Ingrid has carrots, and are about to take down that fence to get them!
She has shown a huge increase in energy and I’m going to be working with her in the next few weeks, weather permitting, to determine how she goes under saddle. We hope Daisy might be a good lesson horse, as she is sound.  She seems, so far, to be willing to do whatever is asked, and she is sweet to handle.

Daisy fell in love with Remy, in June of 2010. And he with her!  Here they are, hanging in the herd, in December of 2010.
Daisy is now partly sponsored!  Thank you, Kimberly Miles, for stepping up for our lovely Daisy!

 Please contact Casey if you would be interested in sponsoring any of the un-sponsored horses at The Golden Carrot.


Star and Ronan

Star and Ronan were the youngest horses at TGC - But now Gio and Jed are! All thrown away because people could not be bothered. Can you help them?

Many horses come to TGC ill, abused, starved. Right is Duke in July of 2008, and below is him again 2 months later.  We CAN make a difference, with your help.

The Golden Carrot is home to 37 horses and 2 donks at this time.


First and foremost:  The Golden Carrot was hoping for a donation of land but after a decade, it seemed clear that we weren't going to get that. I'd been saving every penny hoping to have travel expenses, but decided to use it as a downpayment. Then came up against the hard truth that no lenders will lend to a 501c3. No matter what. So in the end, after countless hours on all the real estate sites, I found, and purchased, 130 acres in Snowflake AZ.  It is raw land, and while I have enough to get the well drilled and operational, and the property fenced, we still need your help.  Stalls will cost a lot to build. Tractor work to level a site, materials, someone to build, trenching water lines and electric etc.  Any donation you can make to help with these costs will be so much appreciated.


Or - do you have pipe corral panels you can donate? When we get to that point, would you be willing to help us transport our equine residents to their new digs? 

Secondly, donations, big or small, one-time or monthly, including sponsorships. If donations could swell a little, I could afford to offer an actual salary to a helper, and should we get to that land, I will need a helper!


Or maybe someone knows a big company that wants to sponsor us with one big donation (we could use that for the land!!)
