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.

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. 


I am Spirit and I came to CERA with a whole lot of issues. I guess you could say that I'm a high maintenance kind of gal.

Not only was I "expecting" but I also suffer from COPD which made me struggle to breathe, which was no joke, especially during the summer!

Thank God, everyone here knew what to do to make me feel better and helped me to not lose my baby. Whisper was born in August of 2019 and because he was born early, he was quite tiny and still has a long road ahead of him. You can read more about him below.

My care has been costly and full of challenges. Would you please sponsor me?



My name is Mama and I didn't always look this good (despite my age!).  I had a pretty rough life and I'm also blind in one eye.

CERA nursed me back to health and I feel very lucky to be here. I'm a palomino Quarter Horse and enjoy retirement at the farm. No more hard work, having babies after babies, here I can just relax and be a horse.

My name is Alfie and was just a baby when I came to CERA. I had a pretty rough life and wasn't exactly in the best of shape.

CERA nursed me back to health and I feel very lucky to be here. I'm a Mini, just like Sammy and we've become best buds. He taught me a lot of things, I guess you can say he basically raised me. We very much enjoy each other, in fact we've become inseparable, especially being the same size and all. I think those big horses would really scare me.

Our Horses

Whisper was born on August 28, 2019 and two months premature, weighing in at 45 pounds. Growing up has been quite a challenge, but he was a fighter just like his mom Spirit. Unfortunately, Whisper tragically passed away on 22 March, 2020 - we assume due to a sudden heart attack.

Below is a little video to celebrate Whisper's short life at the farm...
