A 501(c)3 nonprofit charity … because every horse matters



We had a fabulous time on the weekend of Sept 17 & 18. Women's 40+ hands on horses workshop. Ok, so one of the "women" was only 12, but we overlooked that flaw... lol. This workshop was developed to offer women who have always wanted to get up close and personal with horses but never had the chance, the opportunity to do so. It was also for women who haven't been around horses for a while - offering a chance to get that much needed "horse fix!" We went over ground work basics, proper leading, round penning and control techniques; grooming and also got everyone back in the saddle. This was so much fun, and I think the ladies enjoyed themselves. We would love to offer this workshop again sometime! Continue reading

Getting Ready for Open House

The FLFES open house is coming up and we are all busy preparing for it. This mural on the door of the barn is going to be the backdrop for pictures of kids on the new donkey we are getting. It's not quite finished, but will be in another day. There will be hay rides and pony rides, yard sale, chinese auction, bake sale and more going on Sunday, the 7th of August.

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!
