Looking for Long Lost Bridle

I am searching for a bridle I used to have. It belonged to my favorite mare that has sinced passed away. It is a brown large sized bridle with web reins with a name plate on the crown that reads Willow. If I could find the bridle, it would be like I still had a piece of my mare with me.

Bridle had been donated to a local horse rescue, but they aren't replying to my messages. So, if anyone possibly bought the bridle from them, please let me know. I'll buy the bridle back from you!

Thanks

Beautiful Palomino For Half Lease

Beautiful Mare for half lease 3 days a week $300/month. Tracer is a 9 year old Palomino QH. She stands 15h. She goes western and has really great movements. This mare has tons of personality and is super sweet on the ground. She can be a bit of an alpha but if you are consistent with her she will be your best friend. She goes on trail alone or in a group. Has her moments so looking for an experienced rider only. She needs a job and with my work schedule right now I just don't have the time to work her as often as she needs. She is stocky, and has always been sound. She would excel in the gymkahna ring I am sure. If you were interested im showing we live a few blocks away from the BEC and can discuss that. She is located in a quiet backyard barn with a roundpen and a ring outside and the trails are right across the street. Located in Bohemia.  Please contact me if interested. 516-317-0183

Testimonials:

“She speaks of and about the Horses from her heart and mind always keeping the relationship foremost. Katherine is a true advocate of the Horse.”
Tara Reynolds, Twin Birch Farm

“Her program isn’t about getting caught up in labels, like ‘natural’, it’s about getting caught up in Horsemanship. I now understand herd mentality, ground work, patience, safety and so much more.”
Mike Talbot, Lost Acres Ranch

“No bells, whistles, special equipment, favorite breed, level or discipline. Communication, method and instruction to keep the horses and rider become better partners.”
Jodi Summerit Durango, CO

CLINIC DETAILS
Week long workshops are designed for those wanting to improve their confidence, communication, partnership and safe riding skills with horses. Professionals as well as pleasure riders benefit greatly from this week of intense study and fun. As the week progresses each day builds on the previous. Each day takes on its own personality as side trips riding into the rolling mountains and numerous multi colored canyon, discovering and learning about the fern and fauna, dress and play in period clothing, swimming, shooting authentic 1800’s era guns and adult camaraderie develop. Campfires, dinners under the stars, music, storytelling, dancing by the piano, trying your hand in western poker like Wyatt Earp and recapping the day’s events with new friends at happy hour, is enjoyed by all. Viewed as an adult camp with a theme, this format has the highest retention by the students. Working with a large variety of horses with varying personalities and issues, is an invaluable opportunity and critical to the learning process. There is no substitute for handling dozens of horses this week.

Looking for Barn Work!

Hello! My name is Amanda Lentz and I currently a student athlete at Long Island University Post in Old Westbury. I am looking for a job nearby my school so I can work while also completing my education. I am a biology major on the pre-vet track minoring in equine studies. I have lots of experience (over 10 years) with horses including mucking stalls, turning out, feeding, riding, etc. I work for a petting zoo pony party company year round and I have also mucked for two barns for a little over a year now, however they are too far for me to travel back and forth from school during the school year. I have plenty of references and am looking forward to working. Feel free to call or email me with any questions! 631-553-4443

Graduate student looking for riding opportunity

Hi, My name is Ariana and I am currently in my second year of PA school on Long Island. I lost my horse about a year and a half ago and have not done much riding since then, but I would love to get back into it because I miss it very much. I am an intermediate/advanced rider, and have been riding since I was 9 years old (I am now 25). I ride both western and english-- I competed on the Fairfield University Equestrian team (hunter), and I owned my own Arabian horse for 11 years. If someone has a a horse that needs more exercise/attention than they are currently getting for whatever reason that may be, I would love to help out with that. Because school is demanding, I most likely would be able to ride only once-2x per week. Feel free to email/call/text me! Thanks so much. ariphilbin@gmail.com, mobile:978-413-9081

need stalls

I am based in West Hempstead and have 4 Paso Fino horses for whom I am currently looking for better boarding options. There are 2 stallions and 2 mares and my minimum requirements would include a stable for each and a reasonable amount of outdoor space for each horse, the mares could share but not the stallions.
 
I was wondering if you could recommend any boarding options within 1hrs drive (or ideally less than 30 minutes) of West Hempstead? I really appreciate any guidance you can give me on this.

NEW - NORTH FORK THERAPEUTIC RIDING PROGRAM

North Fork Therapeutic Riding Program                          

Foxrun Farm Cutchogue, NY 11935, Cutchogue, NY

561-358-5539 (not 516) or 631-734-6199

The North Fork Therapeutic Riding Program offers individualized therapeutic riding lessons to Long Island’s North Fork residents of all ages: children, adults and veterans with cognitive, physical, emotional or developmental disabilities.

Working as a team, our special, calm horses and experienced therapeutic riding instructors provide an opportunity to improve lives!  This is a year-round program designed to help each individual develop and enhance their skills to full potential, all the while gaining a sense of self-control, personal responsibility and self-confidence.

Please call for an appointment to meet an instructor, come see the horses and get a personal assessment.  Our fees are reasonable. 

Our program also includes training students to gain confidence by competing in horseshows.  Notably, in the 2003 Special World Olympics in Dublin, Ireland where one of our instructor’s autistic student’s won the gold and silver medals in horsemanship!

We also rescue retired racehorses and incorporate them into our program.

To continue providing these services to our community, Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Dank have been generously donating their beautiful Foxrun Farm as a home for the horses.  However, hay and grain costs, veterinarian and farrier fees, farm/barn maintenance and labor (we do much of our own work) are still very expensive.

Donations from you or your organization would be most appreciated to help us continue helping our community.  We are in the process of becoming a 503 (c) (3) non-profit organization.  Meanwhile all your contribution will be deductible retroactively.

There is no substitute for handling dozens of horses this week.

FOXRUN FARM; TURNING A CORNFIELD INTO A HORSE FARM AND THERAPEUTIC RIDING PROGRAM

Foxrun Farm Backstory: How Leonard and Beryl Dank Transformed a Cornfield into a Horse Farm, and Nurture a Therapeutic Riding Nonprofit

 Leonard and Beryl Dank share the backstory of Foxrun Farm; Maryann D’Auria, the barn manager, riding instructor and trainer discusses therapeutic riding.

 Q: How did you get to the North Fork, to Foxrun farm?

 LD: I’m a medical illustrator, lived and worked in Manhattan. To keep our sanity we built a summer house in Cutchogue in 1964. Around 1977 we learned that this big vacant 25 acre farm became available. Since our daughter was riding horses, we wanted to buy this to become a horse farm. We made an offer, but it was refused. Two or three years later the farm was still vacant, we renewed our offer and it was accepted.

 Our daughter had been using a rented horse. Her desire to own her own horse is what started it all. 

 Q: Did you have any agricultural background?

 LD: Well, the first thing we did was build a house, and we moved in on Beryl’s birthday, 1981.    And no.  We learned much of what to do came from books.  Beryl started planting herbs almost as soon as we bought the property. She made herb jellies, sold them at a local farm stand. They were a big success, so she kept growing more and more, eventually about an acre of herbs in all.  A local trucker started taking her herbs up to markets in Hunt’s Point, NYC, and also up to Boston.  The herbs had to be in market very early so we and some local kids who worked for Beryl, would be out there in the pitch dark at 5 am, turn the tractor lights on and gather the herbs.

 Soo after the herb planting started, we went to farm auctions; we needed to get equipment.  We’re Manhattan people and we’re at farm auctions buying pipes for irrigation!  We got a lot of teasing but all the local REAL farmers were very encouraging and helpful.  I moved my business here full time in 1983, gave up the city life.

 In 1984, we planted our first crop of hay on 13+ acres—and brought in 1200 bales of hay!  That’s a lot of hay. So in 1985 we built a barn to hold the hay.  Then a horse-fence expert came up from Kentucky to build our fencing and we moved our daughter’s newly bought horse into the barn along with a couple of goats who ate everything in sight, even the cedar siding on the house..

 Q: You mentioned you really got the farm because you wanted your daughter to have her own horse. Did you?

 LD: Yes. She ought her Thoroughbred horse, Classified Run (Classy) locally.  Then Beryl and I went to the 1986 National Clydesdale Sale Show in Springfield Illinois, started bidding and bought Strong Line Rosie May, a Clydesdale weighing about 2000 pounds and standing some 6’ high at the withers.  She had been a Budweiser horse. The hardest thing was getting her home here on Long Island.

 We decided to breed Rosie to a registered Thoroughbred stallion to give us American Warmblood.  Eventually we bought another mare Maple Jean (Daisy) and ended up with 2 mares and 3 Warmbloods and Classy

 Q: Warm blood? What’s that about?

 MD: Cold blood breeds are Shires, Clydesdales, Belgians—they’re real heavy horses, draft horses. They were meant to be workhorses.

 Hot bloods are refined thoroughbreds. Much smaller, maybe 1000-1200 lbs. They have smaller hindquarters, and carry less of a load. They’re great at going forward—racing, steeplechase and fox hunting.

 Warm bloods are a cross between the two. They have stronger hindquarters than a thoroughbred, and are stronger. They are bred to take a full grown man—200lbs—for a long time. They’re also better at dressage, and are very popular now in Olympic Show jumping.  

 Q: What are the horses we see in Westerns? Are those warm bloods?

 MD: No, those are usually Quarter Horses, and they are entirely different breed. Traditionally the Quarter Horse is good for Western disciplines, can be faster than a thoroughbred for a quarter mile. That’s what they say.  Great for trail riding, pleasure riding, children’s lessons.

 Thoroughbreds are usually better racing and English riding disciplines; Warmbloods for dressage (dancing—which is judged on rhythm, balance, consistence, obedience/responsiveness) and show jumping.

 Q: Foxrun Farm offers riding lessons; what horses do people get to ride? And what services do you offer?

 MD:  We board horses in our ten-stall barn and another four in an adjacent annex.  Interestingly, horses are generally fine outside throughout the winter—they’re animals, and are comfortable even when it’s 15 degrees out.

 We offer riding lessons year-round, English-style primarily, and also therapeutic riding lessons and during the summer we have ‘pony camps’—that’s what they’re called here, but we use horses, not ponies.

 We also have an elaborate system of trails. If a group wants to use them, just call and make arrangements. You have to bring your own horse.   As a boarder, you can also make use of our exercise ring and jumps.

  Horses are available for lease to experienced adult English-style riders.

 The rest is by appointment. You can’t just show up and take a horse for a ride.

I rescue thoroughbreds after they’re done racing; I have three here.  If I can get them to be quiet enough, I use them in these programs.  With all these ex- racehorses it’s really become an economic problem. When you don’t own a farm, it’s really expensive to keep these horses.

 Q: Maryann, how long have you been riding?

 A: I started in a Girl Scout program when I was in 3rd grade. I got my first horse when I was 13.  I was showing, competing, training to be an instructor and got involved in the therapeutic riding. I have been riding for 33 years and teaching for 25 years.

 I was the director of the Red Barn Therapeutic Riding in Old Brookville and became a Team USA Special Olympics coach. After working in Brookville for about 10 years, my husband and I moved to Florida where my mom had a mini-farm.  I was a show trainer in hunters, jumpers and combined training in south Florida.

 Q: How did you get from Florida to the North Fork?

 MD: My husband’s family had a summer home in Southold, and we decided to move back north. He introduced me to Southold and I found a 10 acre horse farm where I could work, live and bring my horses.

I met the Danks and Foxrun Farm because I need a place to stable my three horses after that barn was sold.

Q: What’s therapeutic riding?

A; People with special needs disabilities of all kinds, including PTSD, can benefit from horseback riding. Riding helps develop and enhance basic motor skills, muscle coordination and even communication skills, while gaining a sense of self-control, personal responsibility and self-confidence.

Learning to ride and control an animal as large as a horse requires a lot of physical skills that can be learned and the relationship with the animal offers a powerful emotional bond.

People who cannot play sports or succeed in many other rigorous activities can, through therapeutic riding, master riding a horse and gain tremendous muscular skills as well as self-confidence.

Q: How did the current incarnation of Foxrun Farms horse farm come to be?

LD: One day Maryanne mentioned therapeutic riding and that one of her students, a youngster with Asperger’s, a form of autism, had eventually became a gold and silver medalist in the 2003 World Special Olympics.  I became interested.  She told me about how helpful it was for physically, emotionally, and developmentally disabled people—for people with PTSD too. There’s something about the rhythm of the horse that helps with posture.

So we decided to create the North Fork Therapeutic Riding Program using the facilities of Foxrun Farm; we started up about a year ago.  We have applied to Southold Town to sponsor an eight week program this coming spring.

MD: For the past year, the Danks have been very generously donating out their farm for the Therapeutic Program and the camps.  Without their generosity these programs would not possible.

LD: We’re really enjoying giving back to the community

 Leonard and Beryl Dank share the backstory of Foxrun Farm; Maryann D’Auria, the barn manager, riding instructor and trainer discusses therapeutic riding.

 Q: How did you get to the North Fork, to Foxrun farm?

 LD: I’m a medical illustrator, lived and worked in Manhattan. To keep our sanity we built a summer house in Cutchogue in 1964. Around 1977 we learned that this big vacant 25 acre farm became available. Since our daughter was riding horses, we wanted to buy this to become a horse farm. We made an offer, but it was refused. Two or three years later the farm was still vacant, we renewed our offer and it was accepted.

 Our daughter had been using a rented horse. Her desire to own her own horse is what started it all. 

 Q: Did you have any agricultural background?

 LD: Well, the first thing we did was build a house, and we moved in on Beryl’s birthday, 1981.    And no.  We learned much of what to do came from books.  Beryl started planting herbs almost as soon as we bought the property. She made herb jellies, sold them at a local farm stand. They were a big success, so she kept growing more and more, eventually about an acre of herbs in all.  A local trucker started taking her herbs up to markets in Hunt’s Point, NYC, and also up to Boston.  The herbs had to be in market very early so we and some local kids who worked for Beryl, would be out there in the pitch dark at 5 am, turn the tractor lights on and gather the herbs.

 Soo after the herb planting started, we went to farm auctions; we needed to get equipment.  We’re Manhattan people and we’re at farm auctions buying pipes for irrigation!  We got a lot of teasing but all the local REAL farmers were very encouraging and helpful.  I moved my business here full time in 1983, gave up the city life.

 In 1984, we planted our first crop of hay on 13+ acres—and brought in 1200 bales of hay!  That’s a lot of hay. So in 1985 we built a barn to hold the hay.  Then a horse-fence expert came up from Kentucky to build our fencing and we moved our daughter’s newly bought horse into the barn along with a couple of goats who ate everything in sight, even the cedar siding on the house..

 Q: You mentioned you really got the farm because you wanted your daughter to have her own horse. Did you?

 LD: Yes. She ought her Thoroughbred horse, Classified Run (Classy) locally.  Then Beryl and I went to the 1986 National Clydesdale Sale Show in Springfield Illinois, started bidding and bought Strong Line Rosie May, a Clydesdale weighing about 2000 pounds and standing some 6’ high at the withers.  She had been a Budweiser horse. The hardest thing was getting her home here on Long Island.

 We decided to breed Rosie to a registered Thoroughbred stallion to give us American Warmblood.  Eventually we bought another mare Maple Jean (Daisy) and ended up with 2 mares and 3 Warmbloods and Classy

 Q: Warm blood? What’s that about?

 MD: Cold blood breeds are Shires, Clydesdales, Belgians—they’re real heavy horses, draft horses. They were meant to be workhorses.

 Hot bloods are refined thoroughbreds. Much smaller, maybe 1000-1200 lbs. They have smaller hindquarters, and carry less of a load. They’re great at going forward—racing, steeplechase and fox hunting.

 Warm bloods are a cross between the two. They have stronger hindquarters than a thoroughbred, and are stronger. They are bred to take a full grown man—200lbs—for a long time. They’re also better at dressage, and are very popular now in Olympic Show jumping.  

 Q: What are the horses we see in Westerns? Are those warm bloods?

 MD: No, those are usually Quarter Horses, and they are entirely different breed. Traditionally the Quarter Horse is good for Western disciplines, can be faster than a thoroughbred for a quarter mile. That’s what they say.  Great for trail riding, pleasure riding, children’s lessons.

 Thoroughbreds are usually better racing and English riding disciplines; Warmbloods for dressage (dancing—which is judged on rhythm, balance, consistence, obedience/responsiveness) and show jumping.

 Q: Foxrun Farm offers riding lessons; what horses do people get to ride? And what services do you offer?

 MD:  We board horses in our ten-stall barn and another four in an adjacent annex.  Interestingly, horses are generally fine outside throughout the winter—they’re animals, and are comfortable even when it’s 15 degrees out.

 We offer riding lessons year-round, English-style primarily, and also therapeutic riding lessons and during the summer we have ‘pony camps’—that’s what they’re called here, but we use horses, not ponies.

 We also have an elaborate system of trails. If a group wants to use them, just call and make arrangements. You have to bring your own horse.   As a boarder, you can also make use of our exercise ring and jumps.

  Horses are available for lease to experienced adult English-style riders.

 The rest is by appointment. You can’t just show up and take a horse for a ride.

I rescue thoroughbreds after they’re done racing; I have three here.  If I can get them to be quiet enough, I use them in these programs.  With all these ex- racehorses it’s really become an economic problem. When you don’t own a farm, it’s really expensive to keep these horses.

 Q: Maryann, how long have you been riding?

 A: I started in a Girl Scout program when I was in 3rd grade. I got my first horse when I was 13.  I was showing, competing, training to be an instructor and got involved in the therapeutic riding. I have been riding for 33 years and teaching for 25 years.

 I was the director of the Red Barn Therapeutic Riding in Old Brookville and became a Team USA Special Olympics coach. After working in Brookville for about 10 years, my husband and I moved to Florida where my mom had a mini-farm.  I was a show trainer in hunters, jumpers and combined training in south Florida.

 Q: How did you get from Florida to the North Fork?

 MD: My husband’s family had a summer home in Southold, and we decided to move back north. He introduced me to Southold and I found a 10 acre horse farm where I could work, live and bring my horses.

I met the Danks and Foxrun Farm because I need a place to stable my three horses after that barn was sold.

Q: What’s therapeutic riding?

A; People with special needs disabilities of all kinds, including PTSD, can benefit from horseback riding. Riding helps develop and enhance basic motor skills, muscle coordination and even communication skills, while gaining a sense of self-control, personal responsibility and self-confidence.

Learning to ride and control an animal as large as a horse requires a lot of physical skills that can be learned and the relationship with the animal offers a powerful emotional bond.

People who cannot play sports or succeed in many other rigorous activities can, through therapeutic riding, master riding a horse and gain tremendous muscular skills as well as self-confidence.

Q: How did the current incarnation of Foxrun Farms horse farm come to be?

LD: One day Maryanne mentioned therapeutic riding and that one of her students, a youngster with Asperger’s, a form of autism, had eventually became a gold and silver medalist in the 2003 World Special Olympics.  I became interested.  She told me about how helpful it was for physically, emotionally, and developmentally disabled people—for people with PTSD too. There’s something about the rhythm of the horse that helps with posture.

So we decided to create the North Fork Therapeutic Riding Program using the facilities of Foxrun Farm; we started up about a year ago.  We have applied to Southold Town to sponsor an eight week program this coming spring.

MD: For the past year, the Danks have been very generously donating out their farm for the Therapeutic Program and the camps.  Without their generosity these programs would not possible.

LD: We’re really enjoying giving back to the community

We are not self-deploying. We will have the necessary clearance to make the trip all the way to Florida.

We are asking for donations of non-perishable foods, water, clothing, first aid supplies for people and money.

For animals, we are asking for food for dogs, cats, horses and birds. First aid supplies, burn salves, light weight sheets, towels, clothes for wound cleaning etc. Linda Baca from Stolen Horse International, will also be sending lists of needed items as the storm clears.

If people want to purchase gift cards to Tractor Supply, Agways, or other feed stores. That is welcome. If you want to purchase gas cards and grocery cards, beautiful! They can be mailed to Linda, Stacey, Deanna or myself for distributing to those in need.

If you are interested in helping by collecting and or are willing to drive south with your truck and trailer, depending on the supplies gathered, that will help as well.

That is the immediate need. As we all know, horses and livestock may be standing in waste water for weeks. We may attempt another run in a few weeks to help with medical issues that arise from lack of clean water and help.

Available to do barn work/riding

Hi everyone,

I've seen a few ads looking for an experienced rider to exercise their horse or barn work needed.  I am 18, an experienced rider living in Shoreham and looking for an extra job to put me through college.  I am available year 'round.  I just retired my mare due to injury preventing her from riding and have experience riding many types of horses in riding and competing since the age of 8.  I am also available for the simple mucking of stalls, feeding, grooming and general barn work.  If anyone is looking please contact me at my email naronica4208@gmail.com or call or text at 6316032230.  Local inquiries only please! Thank you!

TUX NEEDS YOUR HELP!

Tux's Story....So Far

 

An 8 year old Shire/TB cross recently underwent major surgery.  My dad went to go feed and bring in the horses for the night, just like any other night, on Tuesday, July 26, 2016.  Except this night was different.  His beloved horse Tux, a 17hh gentile giant was in distress.  Tux appeared to be colicking.  Nothing we have never seen before.  So my dad started to walk Tux hoping to settle his stomach.  After 5 hours, he was still not feeling better.  The vet came and gave him Batamine.  Tux's symptoms only continued to worsen.  After a long night of walking him, my dad called the vet back.  He was pumped with oil and fluids hoping to get things moving in Tux's stomach.  To no avail.  This is when he was referred to the Cornell Ruffian Equine Clinic.  With the help of our (AMAZING) neighbor, my dad quickly hooked up the trailer, loaded, and got Tux to the clinic. Upon arrival, the team at the clinic was ready to tend to this poor horse. 

 

To shorten up a long story, the specialist working on Tux, Dr. Hurcombe, told my Dad that Tux had a twisted small intestine.  It was most likely caused by a type of genetic disorder where a part of his small intestine circulation has been cut off and they will need to perform emergency surgery to remove about 25 feet of dead intestine.  There is an 85% survival chance if we go with the surgery.  Without hesitation, my dad asked them to go forward with the surgery.  About 10 years ago, my dad lost his first best friend Kyle to colic.  He was not about to lose Tux.  After 4 hours of surgery and removal of 30 feet of small intestine, Tux was being transferred to the recovery room.

 

Since then, he has been fighing a very uphill battle to recover.  My dad and neighbor were sent back home to get some sleep.  It has been a very trying time for Tux these past few days, but he has been staying quiet and fighting the good fight.  Today, my dad and I went to the clinic to visit him.  Upon arrival, one of the vet technicians brought us up to speed with his progress.  Becuase Tux has only been given fluids (to be sure the area that was re-attached has no leaks and can properly heal) he has had diarrhea.  It has been monitored and been improving, however, just before we got there, it had worsened.  This could be due to many factors, so they did some bloodwork.  The white blood cell count came back normal which is a great sign.  Becuase horses are natural carriers of salmonella, they had to take every precaution and quarantine him.  He was going to be tested for it if the Dr. Hurcombe ordered it, but they had not heard back from him at that point yet.  Another sympton he was experiencing was an elevated respiratory system.  This could be due to heat or pain, but he is on paid management medications and was put in a well ventilated stall with a large fan.  Unfortunately, they were unable to explain why his breating was heavy. 

 

Despite the heartbreaking condition Tux is in, my dad and I decided to go in and see him.  We spent about an hour, petting him in his favorite spots and talking to him, telling him he is going to fight through this.  As we were in the stall, I couldn't help but notice the IV that was sewed into his neck which connected to a line that was hung from the ceiling.  He had a muzzle with a feeding tube on the side.  On the sides of his head, his chest, and his legs, he had scrapes from the time he went down in the paddock and was thrashing around on his back next to the fence.  All the scrape sites had ointment on them and were healing.  He visibly lost a ton of weight.  But he was standing.  At times, he put his ears forward and opened his eyes big and bright.  These things gave us hope.  We learned that he is expected to stay at least another week at the clinic with around the clock checks to be sure he is progressing positively and to administer his medications.  Transitioning his back to food that has more texture to it, which he is not ready for at this time, will take a minimum of 4 days.  As we gave Tux the last kisses for the day, we left the stall and had a silent drive home.  While this was going on, my parents have been in the process of making a move to their home in Virginia where they will eventually retire.  My mom is in VA full time now and has been heartbroken that she can't be here to help.

 

My dad is the kind of guy that can go up to any animal and just abolutely love them.  My mom is the kind of person who would drop literally ANYTHING for a friend and help them.  Both of my parents are unbelievably kind, have always put others before them and NEVER asked for anything in return.

 

While this is going on, there is no thought or mention of the cost of vet bills that will be associated with Tux's treatment.  All we know at this point is that there is a long hard recovery period still ahead.  That's where I come in.  I don't know how much the vet bill will end up being.  But for my parents to not consider that in a dire attempt to rather save Tux's life says a lot about who they are.  In an attempt to ease the financial pain, I have set up a GoFundMe page to try and help raise money for Tux's vet bills.  Here I post regular updates and pictures of his progress.  My parents don't know about the page right now, but when enough money has been raised, I will present it to them and I know they will be beyond words.

 

What I am asking is that anyone who can, please help donate.  Money isn't the only way to do so - just by sharing the page and spreading the word helps TREMENDOUSLY.  I don't have a Facebook or any kind of social media so getting help sharing his story and spreading the word helps so much.  Sending prayers, notes of encouragement, or sharing your own success story helps too!!  If you know my parents, chances are they have done something to help you out - and they did it happily and with a smile on their faces.  If you don't, I hope that you can at least learn from Tux's story.  Follow it, note the details, and learn about a very real ailment that could happen to any horse at any time.

 

Thank you so much for reading Tux's story.  The link to his GoFundMe page where photos and updates on his progress can also be found is:

Available for Adoption

 

For Adoption:
Carmen (black & white paint) is a 20 year old mare and around 15 hands. Georgie Girl (buckskin & white paint) is a 13 year old mare and around 16.1 hands. We are going to start accepting adoption applications from potential adopters to ensure we find the right match for them. They are available for adoption together as a pair only, as they are mother and daughter and have been together since Georgie was born. They are super sweet, sound, they don't bite, kick, and are not aggressive in any way. They stand well for the farrier and for grooming and are up to date on all. They will need someone with experience to retrain them since they haven't been ridden in many years. Carmen has about a year under saddle but will need to be brought back slowly. Georgie only has about 30-60 days riding on her so she is very green and will need to be restarted. They are located in Manorville, NY and we only adopt horses out within a 4 hour driving radius from zip code 11949. Their adoption fee is $500 for the pair.

Looking for Trainer

Hi! My name is Nicole.  My horse is Mally.  She is an 11 year old OTTB and full of energy.  I am looking for a trainer that specifically knows thoroughbreds and who will come to this barn.  I am looking to ride her in hunters. 

She is not the easiest horse to ride, but we have come a long way.  Mally is difficult in the sense that she easily becomes bored.  She always needs a focus, direction, and task. 

I am having trouble with her left lead, but I am aware it has a lot to do with my position.  Position and how I sit on her back changes everything with this horse. 

Apart from isssues with her left lead, Mally's next big challenge is containing her energy (especially jumping- she loves the jumps).

My biggest challenge is my nerves.  I am looking for someone who can successfully know when to push me as well as when to back off on my bad days.

We really are a great team and very hard working.  If you have any questions please text, call, or dm.  My number is (516)993-9704.

I look forward to hearing back from anyone interested in training us and feels they are a good fit.

Thank you,

Nicole

RETIREMENT FOR YOUR ADORED EQUINE

Happy Summer

Can you picture your horse here? Spacious grassy fields, with deep blue sky above sharing a few poofy clouds. Mountains in the distance beyond the treelines turning a light shade of purple. A group of horses with their heads down munching on green grass with their ears relaxed to the sides as their eyes are soft with contenment as their shining coats grab the last rays of the setting sun. That is what i have the pleasure of viewing every day here at Three Bays Farm, for the last 15 years.

Now is the time to start thinking of when you will be retiring your special guy or gal. Early fall is the best time before going into the winter months. With summer just around the corner and spring finally here, its the best time for you to enjoy trail rides and quality time before making that oh so very hard decision. But here on Three Bays Farm we have happy and relaxed horses!! See our ad under boarding!! We have field spots open right now and 1 open stall. So if you are not ready now, contact us to put you on the wait list for in the fall. You can email me at horselady9@aol.com or call or text at 610-78-4920. Lots of LI references to share!!! Looking forward to speaking with you!

Give us a call... Janet and Neil Citron

SWAP night is a huge event and it wouldn’t be possible without the assistance of countless people who help prepare ahead of time, work during the event itself, and clean up afterwards. It truly is a great community event from the committee planning it to the people working it. Thank you for helping to make the day possible!

 

The turn out from our last meeting was such a success. We have faith in your support again. Our next open meeting is this Wednesday. The main point for this meeting is the election of officers. There will also be discussion on the upcoming Vineyard ride being held June 4th.

 

There is a list of open officer positions available as well as volunteer positons for different events.

 

This is your organization and it is your opportunity to steer the direction you wish it to take.

 

Thank You Very Much,

NSHA Board of Directors

In need of property to lease

In need of a place for my father to park and live in his brand new 40ft. luxury travel trailer. He would need access to electric and water. He is looking for a 2-3 year term. He loves animals and does volunteer work everyday 5am-1pm for a rescue. Looking for a safe place where having a trailer on the property won't be an issue. Thank you

spraying in Connetquot May 20th please share

The reason Connetquot is being sprayed is because the forest has seen severe impacts to a variety of pests over the past few years. Many native pitch pine have been lost to southern pine beetle over the past two years, leaving oaks as the dominate canopy trees of the park. Heavy infestations of gypsy moth in the spring and two spotted oak worm in the summer have acted as a double shock to these trees. Drought, severe winters and other environmental factors have also stressed these trees. Only 300 acres of the nearly 3,600 acres of the park will be sprayed, which are the most highly infested areas.  We believe this is an extreme situation and must act in order not to lose additional trees.

THANK YOU

JERRY FOR THIS INFORATION

But here on Three Bays Farm we have happy and relaxed horses!! See our ad under boarding!! We have field spots open right now and 1 stall. So if you are not ready now, contact us to put you on the wait list for in the fall. You can email me at horselady9@aol.com or call or text at 610-780-4920. Lots of LI references to share!!!

JRTx puppy for adoption

Ernest is an extra-cute 5 month old boy rescued from a kill shelter.  He's 12 lbs, blk/tan, short hair.  Should be 18lbs full grown.  He looks to be a mix between a JRT and an Italian greyhound.  He's all legs, super playful, loves other dogs.  He's affectionate and very smart.  He has a resolving case of demodex (not contagious), likely from a poor diet.  He completed a course of meds to treat it, now just needs TLC.

Seeking Full Time Employment

Hello, 

My name is Celeste, I am 24 and originally from Texas, where most of my riding career has lived. I moved to New York City a few years ago to complete my Bachelors degree in Marketing and Graphic Design. Since then, I have worked on many campaigns and events but have maintained my riding career with hopes to turn this into a full-time career.  

I have over 15 years experience in eventing with a heavy focus in Pony Club and 4H Vet Tech; and now a focus on dressage with hopes to compete in the next few years. The bulk of my riding experience has been on the back of ornery ponies and off the track thoroughbreds! During my summers in college, I maintained my family's farm of 13 horses in Texas with boarders and competitors and established a lesson programs for kids 14 and under.

Given my experience in marketing and graphic design, I am ideally looking for a position as barn manager or aid in establishing a barn manager program along with marketing the farm.

Please send me an email at celestechesser@gmail.com for references and experience. Thanks!
