Misfit Ranch - Rising Sun
Meet Rising Sun (“Sunny”), named by one of our amazing sponsors and volunteers after Elvis' palomino... he is a HUGE Elvis fan!
He's a 2014 model, palomino grade colt who was rescued at birth from an unthinkable fate. Sunny is a nurse-mare foal... bred solely to throw away upon birth so that a better bred, more expensive foal could take his place to nurse on Sunny's mama. This purpose is to keep the better bred, more expensive mare from being compromised from nursing AND so she could be bred back. Sunny's saviors began bottle feeding and nurturing him because his breeder was going to toss him aside and let him die! Can you imagine?
He came to Misfit Ranch Equine Rescue in January 2015 at 6 months old from Winner's Circle Equine Rescue with excellent ground manners and a beautiful, sweet personality. We are completely in love with him and couldn't imagine our herd of misfits without him!
