The term Shadarobah is Native American for "May the Future be Better than the Past"
That is what we base our philosophy on... making the future for each horse in our care better than their past... we can not control what has happened to them, but we can control were they go from here.
The way it all began...
In May of 2008 Michelle heard about a horse in need of a home. She made the drive out to see him. It quickly became evident he was in a dire situation. Michelle realized Leroy would die if left there. While Michelle had absolutely no horse experience, she knew she could not walk away. She was moved to save Leroy.
Within 2 days, Michelle had a plan. She found property with a barn. In record time she moved Leroy to a temporary boarding facility. Even at that facility there were three horses who had been abandoned: Blue, Duchess and Angel. All would move with Leroy to the barn on Highway 33 between Fort Wayne and Churubusco Indiana in July of 2008
Since that time, we have helped over 300 horses make the future better than the past.
Shadarobah takes in horses in need, be it family changes, economic need, slaughter bound or seizure by law enforcement. We nurture and nourish these beautiful animals, many of whom have been through traumatic experiences such as malnutrition, neglect, abuse and abandonment.
Save horses from slaughter, abuse and neglect; then place them in loving and nurturing homes.
Part of that mission includes educating people on the plight of horses and making it possible for all people to enjoy the great gift of knowing a horse!
