A note to potential sponsor:
Every horse needs several sponsors to fully fund their care, averaging $300 per month at Dove Creek Equine Rescue.
Marlena - aka "Marly" is a 16 year old quarter horse mare. Marlena came to Dove Creek with Frank Castillo, ranch foreman, in 2013. She was his main working horse at that time and had been in the feed yard with Frank for many years as an all around working cow horse as well as an amazing cutting horse. She is fun to watch work a cow! Laurie and Greg Kerley fell in love with her and bought her from Frank in 2015 so she is a resident at Dove Creek. Marley has been a solid working horse at Dove Creek as well as a main teaching horse in the volunteer program. She also is part of the “healing team” of horses Laurie Higgins-Kerley uses in the Equine Facilitated Healing program because of her gentle disposition on the ground. A big heart and compassionate spirit make Marlena a favorite here.
