Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and find new homes for abused, neglected, unwanted and
slaughter bound horses, ponies, and other equines.  A few of our rescues are pictured below.
KOTHRR now has limited space available to rescue and adopt out small, domestic barnyard animals
such as goats and ducks.
Please have a look at our beautiful rescued horses and maybe you will find your next companion.
Rescuing and rehabilitating horses is our labor of love, but it is very expensive. Will you help us and
donate a few dollars for their upkeep until they are adopted? Or maybe sponsor a horse?
Due to the nature of our organization, we are open by appointment only and are not equipped
to accommodate walk ins.
Thank you for your interest in donating to the 4-legged Colorado
Flood Victims. 100% of all donations recieved until further notice
will go directly towards feeding, housing, bedding, veterinary
expenses and purchasing hay for the large and small animal victims
of the flooding.  Please remember all donations are tax deductible!
If you or your animals are in a flood zone and are in need of pet or
large animal feed, hay, and/or other supplies, please contact us for
assistance via email at
Thank You SO MUCH to the generous supporters of our flood relief

The Horse's Prayer
To thee, my master, I offer my prayer. Feed me, water and care for me, and when the day's work is done, provide me
with shelter, a clean, dry bed, and stall wide enough for me to lie down in comfort.
Always be kind to me. Your voice often means as much to me as the reins. Pet me sometimes, that I may serve you
the more gladly and learn to love you. Do not jerk the reins, and do not whip me when going uphill. Never strike, beat, or
kick me when I do not understand you. Watch me, and if I fail to do your bidding, see if something is not wrong with my
harness or feet.
Do not check me so that I cannot have free use of my head. If you insist that I wear blinkers, so that I cannot see
behind me as it was intended I should, I pray you be careful that the blinders stand well out of my eyes. Do not overload
me, or hitch me where water will drip on me. Keep me well shod.
Examine my teeth when I do not eat, I may have an ulcerated tooth, and that, you know, is very painful. Do not tie my
head in an unnatural position, or take away my best defense against flies and mosquitoes by cutting off my tail.

I cannot tell you when I am thirsty, so give me clean, cool water often. Save me, by all means in your power from that
fatal disease - the glanders. I cannot tell you in words when I am sick, so watch me, that by signs you may know my
condition. Give me all possible shelter from the hot sun, and put a blanket on me, not when I am working, but when I
am standing in the cold. Never put a frosty bit in my mouth, first warm it by holding it a moment in your hands.
I try to carry you and your burden without a murmur, and wait patiently for you long hours of the day or night. Without
the power to choose my shoes or path, I sometimes fall on hard pavement which I have often prayed might not be of
wood but of such a nature as to give me safe and sure footing. Remember that I must be ready at any moment to lose
my life in your service.
And finally, OH MY MASTER, when my useful strength is gone, do not turn me out to starve or freeze, or sell me to
some cruel owner, to be slowly tortured and starved to death, but do thou, My Master, take my life in the kindest way,
and your God will reward you here and hereafter. You will not consider me irreverent if I ask this in the name of Him
who was born in a stable.
