Creek Horse Rescue and Adoption, Inc. is a small rescue operated by
Ken, Jeannie, and John Holland.
In 1999 when the Holland's were looking for a horse to
purchase and were referred to a farm involved with nursemare foals by a
Although the nursemare industry is a big part of Kentucky, it
does have a downside. The mares are bred to produce foals and then when
a call comes in, the mare is taken from the foal and sent to another
farm to raise a foal, leaving their own foal an orphan.
The Holland Family felt a need to create an organization that
would rescue and place orphan nursemare foals. In 1999 they founded
Casey Creek Rescue and Adoption, Inc.
Creek Rescue and Adoption obtains orphan foals from the nursemare farms
and finds loving homes for them to be raised in. In the past some of the
nursemare farms would either sell to meat dealers or kill the orphans.
The farms Casey Creek are involved with have a great deal of respect for
the foals and at times will even call in the middle of the night to help
place these orphans with loving adopters.
Casey Creek is a 501 c 3 organization that survives mainly on donations.
