We at TSB are so happy to announce a new partnership with the ASPCA®’s Right Horse Initiative to establish Right Horses, Bright Futures—a program to help secure new beginnings for very special horses in need of new homes. TSB will sponsor each “Right Horses, Bright Futures Horse” until he or she is adopted, offering scholarships to cover care and public updates to our readers and followers in an effort to help locate the right person or family for each equine in transition.

Our first two Right Horses, Bright Futures horses will come from Right Horse Adoption Partners Longmeadow Rescue Ranch in Union, Missouri, and Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary in Ravenna, Ohio. Our sponsorship will focus on spotlighting longer-term equine residents or horses with additional needs at the two facilities.

Meet Moonshadow


Moonshadow originally came to Longmeadow Rescue Ranch as a stray and was adopted out for six years before being returned to the ranch at no fault of his own. Unfortunately, Moonshadow became unpredictable under saddle, and he is not able to be adopted as a riding horse. He is available as a beautiful, intelligent, easy-keeping pasture pet and would also do well with a person interested in groundwork, horse agility, trick training, or liberty. Moonshadow has a knack for learning new tricks and skills and has already spent numerous hours with the Longmeadow groundwork team!

Moonshadow Quick Facts:

  • Height: 13.3 hands
  • Breed: Peruvian Horse
  • Age: 18 years young
  • Temperament: Energetic, engaged
  • Adoption fee: $350
  • Location: Union, MO

Can Moonshadow have a Bright Future with you or someone you know? We are hoping that by sharing his story with our extended horse family, we can all help find him a wonderful home.
