Cotton Branch: Meet Tucker!

Once upon a time… there lived a mother and her foul. Anyone would expect them to live happily together, frolicking in a field of green, lush grass somewhere because that’s what all horses deserve; shelter for warmth and protection from the elements, enough food to fill their bellies, clean, fresh water, room to run, and all the love in the world. Instead, Tucker and his mother were skin and bones, neglected and starving.

That was until Cotton Branch Farm Sanctuary came to their rescue. From all of the abuse and neglect, Tucker’s mother sadly passed away only a week after the rescue. If help would have arrived any later than it did, Tucker would have had the same, horrible fate as his mother.

Cotton Branch’s family of volunteers nursed Tucker back to health. He is now living a life full of happiness and peace at Cotton Branch Farm Animal Sanctuary. Tucker is quite the charmer and loves to meet new people. He seeks love and attention from all who visit Cotton Branch, but don’t let him fool you for a second! He has become quite the “pit-pocket”, chewing on people’s clothes and taking things from their pockets, (he says it’s his version “borrowing” and showing his affection). When my son and I visited the residents at Cotton Branch, Tucker was always coming to the fence, watching our every move until we decided to come over and visit.


Cotton Branch’s work changes the lives of farm animals, like Tucker, daily through its rescue and transport efforts, as well as the exceptional care its volunteers give to the animals at the sanctuary. Also, Cotton Branch works hard to educate the community about these animals, so more farm animals can have the care that they deserve. Become a part of Cotton Branch’s family of volunteers and get involved today by joining Cotton Branch’sVolunteer, Action, and TransportNetworks! The life of Cotton Branch’s residents, as well as your own, will be changed forever.
