Successful Adoptions

Jewels

Jewels (formerly called "Judith") was rescued at auction from Camelot, saving her from facing being bought by a killer buyer and being sent to the kill pen. Her rescue was made possible, like all those we save, thanks to the tireless efforts of our volunteers and wonderful donors, like you, who help us in our mission to give equines a second chance in life.

Stuart

Stuart is a rescued miniature donkey stallion with bad feet. We had him gelded so he could play nicer with the others, and after some rehab time he was adopted and found a loving forever home. Continue reading

Belle

We delivered Belle to Yellow Birch Farm in Pembroke on Saturday. I will tell you, horses know stuff! Belle nearly jumped into the trailer when BJ brought her to the ramp. She loaded up easily and was even impatient when we were getting her all settled, and the doors secured. She hauled like a pro and unloaded easily. Continue reading

Our dear Fern had to leave her friends recently for greener pastures. She was always our ever-ready spokeshorse. If she were still here, she would be sending you messages about hay, and that her horsie friends still need to eat every day.

As little as $5 feeds a horse for a day. Won't you please help by making a donation in Fern's memory? There are DONATE buttons on this page to make it easy, OR PayPal is 1stlightfarm@gmail.com OR the mailing address is First Light Farm Equine Shelter, 1054B North River Road, Auburn, ME 04210

Our next delivery is in a week. $1200 will get Fern's friends through another couple of months. Please think about funny, engaging, quirky, happy Fern. Please think about our commitment to care for horses like Fern until they are homed or end their days. Please help us keep our promise to these horses.
Thank you!
