Group Background:

From it's humble backyard beginnings, Black Feather Horse Rescue strives to improve the health and well being of abused, injured and neglected horses. In the fall of 2004, BFHR opened it's doors to a barn that immediately became too small. In that short amount time, they have placed more than 20 horses in loving and caring homes.

How are Horses Acquired?
The majority of our rescues have been within the state of Massachusetts through word of mouth only. At present we can only accommodate up to 13 horses but with the increase in horses coming our way, we hope to build additional stalls so that we never have to turn away a horse in need.

How the Horses Rehabilitated:
We provide them with not only the necessities of quality hay, grain and proper veterinary care but the desperately needed TLC they truly deserve. Our goal is to get them back in good health and good spirits and adopt them out to loving forever homes who will further provide any necessary care and training that they may need.

Group Specialties:
When BFHR was started, there were very few rescues in our area so we learned alot as we went. Our horses and adopters are sent home to their barn with lots of advice and information to help make the transition enjoyable for the horse and new owner. We follow up on all adoptions and ask that should ownership me transfered, BFHR be notified and given first right of refusal so that we know the horse is going on to an appropriate home.

Group Qualifications and Awards:
We've been published 3 times in the local Plymouth Bulletin newspaper and we cannot thank them enough for all their support of our cause

Typical Day at the Facility:
All of our horses receive daily love and attention along with turnout and rations of quality hay and grain. I live a stones throw away from the barn and paddocks and offer 24 hour a day care. We also operate a trout hatchery on our grounds so the horses get all the care and attention that they need. To date, I am the only one responsible for the care of all these magnificient horses.

Horses Available:
On average, we have 2-4 horses up for adoption as any given time.

Adoption Procedures:
First, we have a one on one interview with the potential adoptee and show them around our barn. Adoptee must have a proper stall and daily turnout along with the financial means to provide veterinary care and hay and grain. Knowledge of horses is also a plus. Adoption fees vary from horse to horse.

Donations & Local Volunteers:
We operate soley on the generousity of of others. Donations are greatly appreciated. We also have tee shirts and sweatshirts for sale with 100% of the purchase price going directly back to the horses.

Additional Horse Tips & Information:
Horses have so much to offer those of us who are lucky enough to have contact with them. They have such an inate way of soothing and healing that we have also shared them with special needs children and the elderly.

Horse Tack & Riding Equipment Maintenance

Tack needs to be maintained religiously. Synthetic tack can be hosed down or washed in the washing machine. It's lighter in weight, easy to care for, and less expensive than leather. Leather, needs much more care. Inspect it every time you clean it. Wash it every time you use it, and then oil the leather parts a few times a year.

Browse some different types and styles of synthetic and leather horse tack available online.
