Villa Chardonnay, Horses with Wings, Inc.

A Marriage of Two Non-profit Equine Sanctuaries, Villa Chardonnay and Double J Ranch Team up to Save 20 “Special Needs Horses” from Euthanization

Many of the horses are thoroughbreds who once had bright futures just to fail after injuries. The horses have various ailments; Fussilli is a 4-year-old thoroughbred with excellent breeding, he was oxygen deprived at birth, yet his owners insisted that he be saved. After a year of 24 hour a day care, including physically helping him stand up every few hours, the owners gave up on him, abandoning him at Double J Ranch. He is attentive, pain free, and very gentle to all people. His current condition is best described as cerebral palsy.
