Junction City, Kansas – In a wonderful act of generosity, a Lawrence resident has given a rescued horse a new home and a second chance at life. Jordan Noller, grand-daughter to local entrepreneur, philanthropist the late Laird Noller, recently adopted Teegan, a 4-year-old gelding, from Rainbow Meadows Equine Rescue and Retirement, Inc. in Junction City, Kansas, providing him with a forever home and the promise of a bright future.
“Every time one of our horses is adopted, we celebrate its chance at a new life in a loving forever home,” said Karen Everhart, Rainbow Meadows executive director. “The true heroes for these horses are those that support us in our work – the adopters, volunteers, fosters and donors. Without them, we could not be successful in our mission.”
A striking Palomino, Teegan was in his mother’s womb when she was found in a kill pen in Kansas. In 2017 when he was only a few months old, Teegan arrived at Rainbow Meadows with his mother. Teegan has grown up at Rainbow Meadows and is a gentle giant. He suffered a venomous snake bite in July 2020 and it was his desire to live which allowed him to recover fully.
