Brook Hill Farm is committed to providing a safe harbor and rehabilitative focused services for abused, neglected, and injured horses. As of today, the farm has helped rescue, rehabilitate and place over 485 horses.
There are over 170,000 unwanted horses in the United States each year, with rescues only able to house 30,000, leaving 140,000 left to care for. These horses are either left to die in their fields or taken to auction where they end up being sold for slaughter and shipped to Mexico or Canada. It is only by all of us working together that we can solve this problem. Brook Hill Farm is one of only a small percentage of rescues in the nation that is fully accredited by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries and the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance. Brook Hill Farm provides a safe haven and excellent care for all of their horses. Besides accepting horses in need from all over the country, the farm serves as the local horse rescue for the surrounding area. Images like the ones above are real horses needing help.
Look what Brook Hill Farm has done for this horse!
At Brook Hill Farm, Veterinarians, a professional Farrier, Dentist, Staff, and dedicated volunteers all come together to help all of the horses, creating and executing a rehabilitation plan uniquely tailored to each horse’s needs.
Besides being a sanctuary for horses needing rescue due to lack of nutrition, Brook Hill Farm focuses on lame horses, for the bad news is that lame horses are rarely purchased by horse enthusiasts, and the majority of these horses never have a chance. Sadly, the current economic conditions and urban growth mean that the number of these horses in danger is dramatically increasing.
Piper came to Brook Hill Farm with a nail injury all the way through her coffin bone! See if you can find the hole in her bone. Look for the small dark circle close to the end of the red arrow.
With excellent vet care and lots of rehabilitation, Piper is now sound and is working in the United Neigh Program!
Who knew that this wonderful horse could heal from a broken sesamoid bone, recover and resume his Eventing career!
And who would believe that this Arab who was found eating lettuce and potatoes would end up being a famous painter!
