RUSTY came to Willow Creek Ranch in July 2019 with some health concerns and was under weight. He did not come with a lot of information on his past, he may have been a 4H project and trail horse who ended up at an auction and was not sold. He was put in a holding pen when a man approached the fence and Rusty came to greet him. Luckily it was that “rescue” that led him to WCR rather than an unhappy end. Months of special care and feeding to make him healthy created an exceptional horse that has brought a lot of joy and fun to WCR (and some funny stories-like walking into the Community Room to look out the window!). He has been working in the riding lesson and mental health programs and has become a favorite friend to many of our volunteers and riders.
