Close X     

Sunshine Horses Inc.
Dylan, a Standardbred gelding pacer came to Sunshine Horses in September of 2020.
He was foaled in 2002, trained as a harness racer, raced a year and earned very little. Dylan was then sold at auction at the age of 4 becoming a buggy horse for the next 14 years.
Dylan had lived out his usefulness in that career as he developed a stifle injury and arthritis. At the age of 18, he was found in the killpen. Luckily, a generous donor pulled him from there and he was sent to Sunshine Horses. Upon arrival, Dylan was emaciated, requiring extensive rehabilitation. It was then we found his injuries prevented him from being a riding horse.
The Platinum Performance product for joint care would benefit his well-being. It would help provide him with a better quality of life, where he can enjoy the rest of his years as a companion horse.

Relationship of Nominator to Nominee
I am a volunteer with Sunshine Horses, Inc. We are a 501c3 horse rescue, specializing in Standardbreds but also take in other breeds. We rehabilitate the horses, when necessary, retrain them for another career or reinforce what they already know, and finally rehome them to an adoptive family. -- Mary B. Minkoff
