My daughter and I began visiting and volunteering at The Golden Carrot through a girl scout visit several years ago and try to get back there as often as we can. Casey is truly remarkable as she manages to care for 50+ horses daily with very little help. I've seen horses come to her painfully thin, frightened, sick or injured, rescued from abusive situations, rescued from the kill buyers at auction, rescued from being put down just for being old or no longer wanted. I've seen the horses gain weight, become confident in the herd, heal from injuries and find a place to be loved and cared for until their time on this earth is done. Casey is a horse whisperer for sure!! Her devotion to the horses is unwavering and when she isn't physically taking care of their needs, she is trying to raise funds to continue her mission. She is as frugal as she can possibly be and every donated penny goes directly to the care and maintenance of her beloved horses. I can say with absolute confidence that The Golden Carrot is one of the most deserving organizations I've chosen to support and volunteer at. Hard work, no frills, 100% satisying.

My friend took me to The Golden Carrot to volunteer because she knew of my great love of horses. When I arrived, I found one great lady caring for 40+ horses on a daily basis. She turns them out every morning, cares for their needs or injuries, cleans stalls, fills water barrels and gathers them up at night, only to feed them again. She does this day in and day out, 365 days a year. She makes sure they receive proper vet care, that their feet are trimmed on a regular basis and even provides chiropractic care! These horses are all older and/or disabled, which means their stay at The Golden Carrot is lifelong. Unfortunately, this also means that she must mercifully send a few horses over the Rainbow Bridge every year. Everything she does is with such love and caring and yet not a penny of the donations it takes to finance this noble endeavor go into her pocket. She is a constant source of amazement to me. I volunteer as often as I can, to lighten her load for the day and give her a little room to breathe. I have NEVER heard of or seen a nonprofit where absolutely every penny that is donated goes straight to the cause.... every penny! Supporting The Golden Carrot is a pleasure and a privilege that is rewarding far beyond the dollars spent. I know I am making a difference in the lives of these discarded but wonderful and loving beings every time I donate or visit. My absolute favorite thing to do is wander through the herd and love, groom, touch and speak to each and every horse. Thank you Casey for all you do and know that you are such a gift to both the horses and to me!

I found "The Golden Carrot" while being on a mission to save an elderly horse. After making initial contact, they immediately responded with a shout out to their donors, volunteers and the readers of their website to help me save my equine friend. Within a couple of days I had so many responses. Unfortunately the horse couldn't be rescued because the owner misled me. None-the-less I decided to visit the Golden Carrot, volunteer and donate to the great cause. Casey is doing a fantastic job, giving these deserving horses a forever home, they can live the rest of their lives in peace. The horse are very well looked after, get all the care they could possible need and most importantly they are loved. One can see that they are happy. All funds go directly to the horses! This is a wonderful Charity and I'd encourage anyone to see it for themselves and to donate to a great cause!
