Review for Mitchell Farm Equine Retirement Inc, Salem, CT, USA
It's the best decision I ever made to step out of my comfort zone and become a volunteer at MFER! At 60yrs. old and having no experience working with equines there were days when I though "you must be crazy"! Making mistakes, feeling stupid, etc. but loving the work and being in the presence of these beautiful animals made me want to come back and keep learning. Dee has been a wonderful teacher to us all and always willing to share her knowledge. Having patience do deal with newbies like me is a big plus on her part also! Now after 3 years and still learning, I will tell anyone "it is the best part of my day"! The horses are of course the best part but mucking stalls, the smell of the barn, beautiful fields, good friendships, hard work, getting dirty and being close to the earth is very rewarding. The horses at MFER are in the best of care under Dee and being part of it makes me look forward to my next trip down the driveway!
