A note to potential sponsor:

Every horse needs several sponsors to fully fund their care, averaging $300/month or $3600/year at Dove Creek Equine Rescue.


Rosco is a 15yo (2004) bay roan gelding, who came to Dove Creek in 2009. He was Laurie’s son Hunter's first horse and a working cow horse.  Together they learned to do ranch work, roping, and worked on other ranches.  About 4 years ago, Rosco "retired" from ranch work. At that time, Christie Shippy-Head, ran the equine division of the outdoor musical "TEXAS" in Palo Duro Canyon, and she incorporated him into the play during the summer run of 2016.  In the fall, Rosco was then returned to Dove Creek Ranch. As he progresses into his wiser years, he is especially suited to work with new folk, and has come to be dubbed as the “Gentle Giant.” Rosco now serves us through our Volunteer program and Equine Facilitated Healing program, where he has a powerful impact on human lives, attributable to his huge heart, exuding love, intelligent savvy, and amazing strength.
