#Repost @daysendfarmhorserescue ・・・
For 9 miniature horses & ponies, today, they received a new beginning. This morning (4/17/18) DEFHR was contacted by Frederick County Animal Control to assist with a neglect case involving 9 equines. Our team deployed immediately and we welcomed the group to our farm this afternoon. Tomorrow, they will have their first visit from the veterinarian, but today marks the start and first stages of rehabilitation. The upcoming weeks are critical, staff and interns will work around the clock checking vitals and ensuring their every need is met.

Something new for us . . . "driving" is actually pretty easy, but learning to put the harness on properly in a little more challenging!
We will be back at Callithea soon with a new toy!!! Looking forward to some cart rides in the arena (first), fields, and tow path. And adding sled runners for winter!
My family boarded their horses here in the late 70's. Loved it there and being able to ride along the Canal.
Wonderful memories for me from back in the early 80's until we had to move the whole farm because of the Potomac Fever outbreak. I'm thrilled to see Callithea is back on its feet. Loved all our trail rides along the canal.
