Ready to Ride II — Horse Sanctuary and Community Farm

This is PAL's newest location at 220 Leap St. in Egg Harbor Township. This project has been in the works for many years and was delayed by the Derecho and Hurricane Sandy. We are a 60 acre farm and we hope to open officially on May 13. We will be home to rescued horses in partnership with the South Jersey Horse Rescue. We will aslo have chickens, ducks, goats and a community garden.

horse farm 04HORSES:

The first addition to our Farm family was Chicane, a full-sized horse.  Chicane, like many of the animals here at the farm, still has a lot of work to do before she can truly be ready to socialize regularly with people, but she’s made great strides since moving to our farm.

Our 2nd and 3rd residents, two mini-horses (Maggie and May), also came to us via the South Jersey Horse Rescue and have quickly become a favorite among visitors and volunteers alike.

A surprise tenant came to our farm just over a month ago by the way of one of our mini horses being pregnant upon her arrival.  Baby Maui was born giving us 3 mini horses on the farm.

goats smallGOATS:

Our next group of farm residents were the 4 playful Nigerian Dwarf Goats.
Felipe, Kevin, Mariah and Marshmallow. The goats have been a great and entertaining addition to the farm and can be commonly seen chasing each other around and playing on their large rubber tires. The baby goats are already extremely socialized and curious.

ducks smallFOWL:

What farm would be complete without a group of friendly fowl?
We have a total of 12 feathered, female friends on our farm. 8 chickens and 4 ducks affectionately referred to as “the girls”, all of our feathered friends were sexed before delivery so all “should be” female.

Both the chickens and ducks were socialized since they were chicks and will come when called. Simply calling “Chick-chick-chick!” or “Duck-duck-duck!” will get the groups running, clucking and quacking.

 

Volunteers needed:

Barn hand (must be at least 16 years of age) to help with care of animals and with collection of free fertilizer

Handy person to help with construction of chicken coops and goat pen

Webpage editor to help with webpage content and to fix all my errors on the page
