No, not yet. I have a friend with a rescue where we take horses when we are full here, and my parents are talking about fencing in some of their property which would probably be another 10 or 15 acres. We just started this full time on Sept. 1st, so we still have a long way to go.

Ah, I was just wondering since you said you have 18 horses and your website said you only had 3 acres so I was a bit worried.

Good luck getting more space.

Thank you. Once we get a few more months under our belts things will get easier with purchasing land or receiving a grant for it. I wish the nonprofit status would go thru soon, Peter Max told us that he would make a large donation per painting he sold to anyone we referred, but I'm sure he'd be willing to help more with the 501(c)3 in place. Not that I'm complaining, his willingness to help us even alittle is wonderful and greatly appreciated.

May I ask you something, without sounding rude (I'm just wondering). What were you worried about? I understand worrying because there's no grass, but besides that I wasn't sure. As long as the horses are being fed correctly and either maintaining their weight, or gaining as needed, I don't see a reason for concern. If it got to the point of them fighting or hurting themselves, I would without a doubt make changes. I'm extremely lucky to working with the local humane officer, so he can keep an eye on everything and make sure it doesn't get out of control. I didn't think we would be able to take in anymore this week from the feedlot, but we got one adopted so that opened up the space to save the remaining two at Camelot. So, everything is good on the home front. I want to thank you for being respectful with your question and concern.

Exclamation Camelot feedlot 11-4-09

I just wanted to let everyone know that we are heading to Camelot to save as many horses as possible this weekend. I will post a list of what's available (which ones Frank buys tonight) tomorrow so that if anyone would like to purchase one themself, they have the info. If anyone would like to donate, our paypal email is muddycreekfarm@gmail.com . Hopefully we can help to get them all homes!

Simply because you don't know what you are getting until you get it home and then you own it. If it isn't what you expected, that's your problem.

Buying one from a rescue, you expect the horse to have been checked out by a vet, have it's initial shots, worming, teeth floated, fatten up, and ridden. You don't need to worry if the horse was Aced before getting to the sale and you can take your time riding him once or several times.

In the mean while, there is time, experience, and actual costs involved in getting the horse to where he is saleable. That is what you are paying for instead of taking a chance on the horse at a sale.

(When I lived in PA I used to go to Camelot and New Holland. I still get sale notices from Camelot!)

Muddycreek, that is really great that you are saving these horses! I go to camelot once in awhile..actually I bought my two horses from there. Lately there has been so many great rideable horses being sold to the kill buyers. I was wondering if you were around when that really pretty paint mare in foal was sold to kill pen. I was thinking of ways of how I would be able to afford her, but I really couldn't. I hope that she was rescued.

Thank You. I don't recall that mare, but there's so many. Frank bought 34 last night to go into the kill pen. I know one got saved this morning, I am going Friday night to save ATLEAST one (hoping for 3). I think if everyone bans together we can get all of these horses out safe. We have the new list posted on our website www.muddycreekfarm.weebly.com (go to nj kill pen, under "more" on the home page)

I was worried about 18 horses being on 3 acres as I don't really feel that would be enough room.
Per your agreement, you require adopters to have 1/2 acre per horse which sounds like a fair minimum with exercise. For 18 horses to follow your agreement, that would be 9 acres which is why I was hoping you got your extra acreage.

I'm fencing my yard in today :) It won't be alot extra but atleast there's grass. I have a big bale of hay in each pasture with the gates open and wouldn't you know it, they are all in one field eating off the one bale lol. I'd rather see horses here on less then a 1/2 acre each while awaiting new homes, then being killed. I just wish I had a bigger barn, even if I was stuck with the small amount of land. They all get either ridden or lunged everyday also so that helps, but there's no lack of running, bucking, and playing in the fields :) If land wasn't so darn expensive in this area I'd have plenty by now (10 acres with no house or barn is going to cost what our entire property with building the barns etc.. cost). Thanks again for your concern.
