Thank you from LoveJoy!

This little guy was thrown away at auction before he had reached a year old. He is the product of reckless backyard breeding and this is all too often reflected in the amount of unwanted youngsters dumped at high risk auction houses.
In 10 months he has blossomed into a well behaved, sweet, curious and loving youngster. We want to continue this good behavior pattern and great attitude by eliminating his production of testosterone.


We have completed LoveJoy’s Gelding because of your support. He is recovering well. For all that have donated or spread the word, we truly appreciate you.


Welcome to Iron Horse Sanctuary

Meet Misty and Buster

Misty & Buster
Our goal of intercepting at risk horses before they hit the auction floor is coming to fruition. We’ve spent several years working with an Amish community in upstate New York, building a relationship where we can offer them an option other than shipping to slaughter. This allows our farm to rescue the animal before it’s exposed to the stress and filth of shipping trailers and several auction houses.
It allows us to prevent the likelihood of them going to Canada or Mexico for slaughter. We are cutting out the middle man…the kill buyer. In return we’re getting clean horses. Animals that have spent a lifetime on the same farm. It may surprise you to know that often the horse has been with the same family for 15 plus years and the children cry when the horse leaves. Some do care and are willing to work with us. It’s a cultural difference in opinions but through this relationship we bring about awareness, re-educate and give them an option, other than shipping to auction.
Buster is a 17yr old saddlebred/Morgan

Missy is a 19 year old saddlebred
