Manes and Tails is a top notch rescue with a deeply rooted passion for rescuing horses of all ages and breeds. Manes and Tails is the epitome of integrity, making sure all donations go toward rescuing and rehabilitating horses in need. All rescued horses remain with the organization until they are fully rehabbed, which is quite impressive.
This small Horse Rescue has not gone anywhere. They are still active however their websites have been hacked and that is a huge problem. They have reached out for help, however, none in the Non-Profit Sector has stayed long enough to finish the repairs.
They lost a Horse to EPM and the surviving Horses who have all been exposed are being managed with MSM (an anti-inflammatory), free lunging every day for 30 minutes in the Indoor Arena, and being kept cool in Summer and Warm in winter.
This tragedy could have been avoided had the Vets informed the Farm Owner that the wild animals which carry the parasite that gets into the Horse's body were indeed on the Property. They knew the animals were there but had no idea that these animals are Horse killers. They are now experts at managing Horses who have been exposed to EPM.
I send a Monthly Donation as these Horses will remain on the Farm for the duration of their lives. The Horses are usually Free Leased, however, a horse with exposure to EPM must be taken care of properly and nobody wants to take on a Horse that has been exposed to EPM.
It says this rescue is deep in the heart of NJ. Hoboken is on the waterfront across from New York City. No horses
Stables or facility in Hoboken.
The address they provide is an apartment building.
Manes and Tails has been a dedicated rescuer and advocate for horse welfare. Elle has worked to help all animals though focusing on horses since there are so few protections for them and the need is so great.
Thank you Elle and Manes and Tails for your diligence in this mission.
Elle has been front and center for animal-welfare/horse-welfare for the ~4 yrs that I've worked with her and Manes&Tails. She is spot-on for regulatory and legislative efforts, and a great advisor for that. It's a rare combination that she focuses on the legal aspects of federal and state legislation AND also the practical, everyday horse welfare aspects. She's a great advisor for those who want to make a difference in horse welfare.
