The Golden Carrot, Inc.
November 8, 2012

About four years ago, I read about a rescue in Southen California, The Golden Carrot, that had taken in a horse that had been abandoned in the desert. I decided to visit the rescue's website and look around a little. I found a horse that reminded me of the little bay mare I had as a kid. I contacted Casey and was told that Sara still needed a sponsor. I have been partially sponsoring Sara since...even though she is MUCH bigger than my little bay mare! I am also sending a small donation every month as part of a group to sponsor Cassidy. I do not live in California so I cannot visit to volunteer as often as I would like. I have only visited twice. If you go The Golden Carrot's website, click the Meet The Horses button, go to Sara's page and scroll down a bit, you'll see pictures from my first visit. Casey is very good about updating me with pictures and videos of Sara. Over the years Casey has taken in some horses that are in less than healthy condition. It is amazing to watch the transformation from a skeleton with skin draped over it, to a healthy, happy, thriving equine. I think the best videos she makes are the ones that show the horses charging out every morning. They never fail to bring a smile to my face. I know that 100% of my donation every month goes to care for the horses. If you are looking for a worthy cause to support, I can whole heartedly, without hesitation, recommend The Golden Carrot.
