Review for Tara Farm Rescue, Coventry, CT, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

This honestly sickens me. This is one person and her family mouthing off about an experience that they have shared with the rescue. Let me fill everyone in. I have been with Tara Farm Resuce for the last 4 wonderful years. I myself have adopted a magnificant horse from the rescue and continue to board at the rescue. I was there the day that this woman took the horse off the property. She read and understood the contract and signed a contract stating that Tara Farm Rescue is to visit the place the horse is to be moved to. Instead she shows up, FINALLY cleans her horses' stalls (rough board situation) after a week of not cleaning them and tries to take the horse. Our contract is for the safety of the animal. IF for any reason the person is unable to provide the care or fails to pay board at the boarding facility, the horse is to be brought back to the rescue. BonnieJeanne takes a lot of time (and so have I and any of the volunteers) in working with the animals and healing their wounds of neglect. The man who removed the horse off the farm was someone known for neglect, especially since the rescue had received horses from him in the past. The woman that had the horse swore up and down that she loved the horse but everyone saw the true side of her when she galloped the horse down a wet trail over pavement and the poor animal fell on his side and had horrible wounds and rode him back. She proceded to contact me and ask me for wound care products to use and then left him overnight with no protection on the wounds from the flies. And let me not forget about the time that Tara Farm Rescue held its annual hunter pace. A 7 1/2 mile trail course that had a time of 1 hour and 15 minutes to complete it in. She finished it in 33 minutes with blood coming out of the horse's nose! So it was only a matter of time that the horse would have been taken back. Like I said before, Bonnie Jeanne and her professionals along with the volunteers pour a lot of time into the healing process of these animals. I wish I could look at this woman today and tell her to grow up. It was your stupidity that got your horse taken away from you. And for anyone else who would like to see what our contract is about, please visit the farm's website and you can see for yourself.
