IRMAIGP has now filled all 30 spots for evacuation of horses from Florida. At no cost, we will be providing shelter, hay, protein tubs, salt blocks and of course fresh water.  However, IF you need help please email us with IRMA in your header, we may have other resources nearby that can provide your horse(s) safety. If anyone nearby Iron Gait can foster any small animals during their stay please email us and we can add you to our HELP list.

Those who are bringing your horses to our Sanctuary, there are hotels nearby us in Canton and Jasper if you and your family need housing also.  We are not asking for any kind of payment from the evacuees for their stay.  However, IF anyone else would like to help provide supplies to these unfortunate horses for their stay feel free to stop by anytime someone should be here 10am-?.  Please bring any hay that you can spare or 16% protein tubs (found at Tractor Supply) directly to our farm or if you live to far you can help by donating via our website and State – IRMA


Our neighbor right around the corner from us, graciously offered her 40 acres of pasture too help with more evacuation horses. RESERVE YOUR HORSES SPOTS NOW!
PLEASE CONTACT   Crystal 770-355-4506


We will continue to update the help list as we receive them.
Thank you and God Bless all of Florida and everyone else who may be in Irma’s path.

We have a Facebook with over 21 thousand followers!

You do not need to become a Facebook member to follow us. This is the place where you will find Iron Gait Percherons Draft Horse Sanctuary horses take the center stage and spotlight! Our horses were saved from economic need, many of them were intercepted from slaughter, some were starved, neglected, abused and forgotten. Some are brought here when retired from their job… IGP, is where they learn to know love and are all that matter. We hope you enjoy their stories and photos of recovery, health, finding love while once again learning how to be in a forever family. Many have come to us with severe medical issues where they are provided with the best possible ongoing medical care for the rest of their life. Iron Gait is where when it is their time to cross, we help them with much love and dignity. That is nearly all we talk about here! This is their time too be recognised and too shine with the brightest glory! We are not a classified, We are not a local event page, We are not a lost and found, We are not a personal sales page. However, on occasion we talk about larger horse issues due out of concern or for further education. For the most part we are all about IGP horses and Donkeys, All the time. Most of our supporters are not actual horse owners and are from all over the world who find their connection through our day to day photos and stories. Thank You for joining us here at IGP watching through our LIVE cameras as well as photos of our never ending journey of rescues and the lives of our sanctuary horses.
