Horses we have known
Somewhere in time's own space
There must be some sweet pastured place
Where creeks sing on and tall trees grow
Some paradise where horses go,
For by the love that guides my pen
I know great horses live again.
Toby was born here at the ranch, from a young paint mare that was privately rescued. He was diagnosed with narcolepsy and cataplexy at age of 6 weeks. That meant he could not control his muscles or stay awake with moderately active, such as trotting. He was initially successfully treated through the UC Davis veterinary hospital but within 2 months showed additional neurological symptoms stemming from a spinal malformation. He continued to worsened and he was euthanized at 5 months of age. In his short life Toby provided valuable information to the UC Berkley and Stanford pediatric neurologists on the treatments.
Toby was the sweetest little guy.... dearly missed and he lives on in our hearts.
Our young mare Mya delivered a male foal only days after arrival. Despite all efforts he passes on his 5th day of life.

Who we are
Lone Oak Rescue is a charitable non-profit organization. Our focus is horse rescue and rehabilitation.
We take in horses who are unable to be kept in their current situation and are often at high risk of going to slaughter.
Some have come from a situation of neglect, abuse, or have just been abandoned.
With the current economy many owners are simply no longer able to care for their horses. We provide a safe haven for these horses, allow them to recover and retrain them when necessary.
When ready these horses are adopted out to safe and loving homes, those not able to be adopted find a permanent home here at Lone Oak.
We are committed to our animals for life, checking on them in their new homes to ensure a good match with their new owners.
