Most of the horses listed below are permanent residents at CERA. We love them and care for them and they may be undergoing rehabilitation or have special needs that would not be helped by moving them from home to home. Some may be too young to adopt, while others may be too old.

Each of our permanent residents may be sponsored for any monthly amount. We will keep you updated on the progress and everyday life of your sponsored horse via emails at your request. Sponsorship helps us to properly care for these wonderful animals. Your sponsorship assists us in purchasing nutritious hay and alfalfa, grain, pellets, medicine if needed, vitamins, hoof care, veterinary care, dewormers, vaccinations, etc. Sponsorship is a great outlet for you to put your arms around an animal that really needs you. You will also get the never ending love of your baby!

If you are interested in sponsoring or adopting one of our wonderful horses, please email Darlene at and let her know which horse you are interested in. You are also welcome to visit, by appointment, and bring your horse treats, brush them, etc.  

All contributions are tax-deductible under section 170 of the IRS code. We accept donations via PayPal or you may send a check, whichever you prefer.

My name is Sugar Ray and I'm looking for my next forever home. I am 14.1 hands, 10 years old and well, I have been ridden, but I'm very, very green and have no direction. My trainer friend is confident that with proper training,  I can become a fine mount for even beginners. I love people and attention, oh and I'm pretty smart too, so learning new things will be a breeze. I have a few scars from when I was beaten up by a stallion, but hey, it's not the physical that counts, it's the mind and I'm really a pretty nice fellow on the inside.

Sugar Ray has been adopted!


Sugar Ray

I am Duncan and once was a race horse. Most people refer to me as an OTTB, an "off the track" Thoroughbred. My racing days are long gone and because I am now blind, the nice folks at CERA have allowed me to live out my days at the farm. They say that horses have a sixth sense and that couldn't be more true for horses that are blind, because the one who took care of me when I first came to the farm and was really scared, was no other than Sassy who has been blind from birth. Talk about the blind leading the blind...

Anyway, the people at CERA have taken really good care of me and I'm starting to feel more safe, well except during thunderstorms. I just really don't like them.

I would love to have a sponsor, would you please consider? 

My name is Hope and holy moly, a lot has happened since I came to CERA. I was in pretty bad shape when I arrived, not only that, I was also pregnant! The nice folks at CERA took care of me and I had a beautiful little colt, his name is Outlaw. He's been adopted, but I'm still here. Well, I'm not surprised, who wants a middle aged gal like me who has had no training and a messed up patella which, at my age, is not recommended to fix surgically. I get around just fine though and I'm a very sweet mare. I am a Westphalian Warmblood and have the brand to prove it, but no papers. I was only used for breeding in the past and so the folks here at CERA want to make sure that I'm never being bred again. Well honestly, I couldn't have asked for a nicer place, this farm is beautiful and I made a lot of new friends. I am adoptable and would make a fine (non-rideable) companion. Meanwhile, I would love to have a sponsor, will you please consider?




Hey do you remember Loretta Lynn? No, I'm not here, but my name is Loretta and I do sing. You should hear me belt out the tunes when dinner is being served.

Don't tell anyone, but I'm really a donkey, mixed in with all the horses here at CERA. They feed me with the others, they care for me as I'm one of the others. I'm petted and given attention just like there is no difference between me and the others. Now that's a cool thing!

I am an older gal and coming to CERA, I was a bit nervous, but the other horses  took me in, showed me that everything was ok and everything was going to be great.

CERA has a purpose and it is to take care of us, the forgotten, the ones no longer wanted or needed. Will you help CERA fulfill their purpose, please sponsor or donate... it is tax deductable. 

Hi there, I'm BT aka Beethoven and I'm looking for a new forever home!! I was pretty little when I came to CERA and as you can see, I was in pretty bad shape. The people at CERA nursed me back to health and I turned out to be quite a handsome fellow. I am now going on 3 years old and grew to be about 14.3 hands tall. Perhaps it's because I am part Mustang that I'm just curious about everything and all those scary things around me don't bother me at all. I enjoy learning new things and my trainer friend says that getting me under saddle will be a breeze. I love people and attention, but most of all, I'd love to have a person of my own to call my best buddy and friend. I promise, I won't disappoint you... 
If you are interested in adopting me, please contact Darlene at




Our Horses

My name is Spice and people say that I should be "dancing with the stars" because I can move like I'm floating on air. Yes folks, I do know how to dance. That's when the Saddlebred side of me really shines! (Video coming soon!) I am 7 years old and 14.3 hands tall. I am petite with a very feminine head. Being the diva I am, I obviously love attention, but I've never had any training, so you'll have to be patient with me. I'm really trying...  and eager to learn. If you are interested in adopting me, please contact Darlene at

I am Oscar, but most people just call me "Grandpa." People are guessing that I am a Tennessee Walker cross and I have lost count of how old I am. 

Life was good when I was a companion horse for a younger fellow, but one day we both ended up at CERA. My younger buddy was very adoptable and found a home pretty quickly - me on the other hand...  Well, let's just say that I'm here to stay for good. Most folks are not interested in adopting a senior fellow like me who has no teeth left and walks like a snail.

I found a new buddy here, his name is George and he's a goat. We're always together and roam the property together. George takes care of me and I really enjoy his company and when I'm in the pasture, being the only man in a herd of girls isn't such a bad life either. My feed is expensive, because I have lost most of my teeth.

Would you please sponsor me?

My name is Pumpkin, I'm a little short and a little round, but not orange and I don't live in a pumpkin patch.  

CERA has been my home since 2009 where the people take great care of me and others that have had a tough life. 

Once I get to know you I am one of the best ponies you can meet, but I do have a slight problem trusting people until I get to know them. You just have to be patient and let me get to know you.

I do enjoy being petted, loved on, and I love cookies or treats! I'd love to have a sponsor, will it be you?
