Good on you for rehoming these horses.

At this moment we are in desperate need of waterproof blankets sizes 72" to 81", and grain/hay/vet funds.

We will be going back to the feedlot as soon as we can find homes for a few of our available horses
It would seem to me that if you are desperate for feed and money to pay vet bills that maybe you should hold off on taking in more horses until you are in a better situation? You hear of situations like this on Fugly all the time and often they end up badly for the horses - not saying yours will, but maybe a step back in your rescueing efforts for a while is the way to go?

understandable

That was actually on the wish list, which we were desperate for the blankets no doubt (things have changed since then), and I personally think that every rescue is always in need of grain/hay/vet funds/supplements/etc. We normally ended up rehoming atleast one horse before going back for another unless it came down to that last minute where it seemed like nobody else was going to be able to get the horse. At one point we were up to 18, which was way too many, but since then we have rehomed all of them except one from Camelot and one pregnant mare that we purchased locally to keep from going to slaughter. Both of them are for adoption/rehoming. My fiance` has taken over the rescue so the name changed to Stormy Knights Rescue (www.stormyknightsrescue.weebly.com) and since we only have 6 stalls, that's the number of horses that we have at one time (we actually have 7 right now but one of them is at my parents).
Luckily the camelot horses have been getting saved by other people and rescues, so I don't feel like I have to jump to save them now since so many other people have stepped up. I will of course always be ready to go back to save one or two if the need arises but for now we have decided to tone it down alot and keep things much smaller.

I am planning on doing something like that when I move out of PA. I am planning on moving to Nevada and opening a training stable, and I wanted to save horses from auctions, and horses set to go to slaughter because I don't want them to go to such a horrible place. You guys are doing a wonderful thing.

Whether a cat, dog or horse rescue, I know they are always in need of donations & supplies...and as far as keeping horses in a rescue with less acres than is desirable, I don't see the problem in a temp situation, at least they won't be in mexico in a scary slaughterhouse...a much worse alternative.
Obviously this rescue is legit, it is registered and I have seen her on many forums and many happy adopters...kind of seems like ya'all are busting her balls here.
More power to the rescue for saving horses with so much potential. Too bad so many are being dumped while so many are being bred.

Thank you Roxanne for your comment. I do understand people having concerns so no harm done. We have decided to go back to private rescue and our new website is www.stormyknightsrescue.weebly.com . We have gone from 18 horses at one point down to 5, so things are on a much better scale now. We haven't been to Camelot in quite a few months now and because of the outpouring of support to save the kill pen horses, other rescues and people have been saving all of them weekly so we can begin to work locally again. I do have a hundred in donations that are set back for a camelot save once we gather more funds for that specific cause but we are not stressing out to make a trip once or twice a month anymore.

I'm glad that I found this post, I was going to put something up if I didn't. I'd like to make more people aware that you can get a great horse if you have the means to care for one. I for one didn't always have money to purchase a horse but I had pastures and hay and would have loved to have known about this place. I have to work on my husband on helping a few here. I looked at last nights sale, if I had $3000.00 I could have bought them all!

I'm just curious since I've lived near Camelot for several years, and now am in the Lehigh Valley. I passed two livestock trailers on Monday with about a half dozen horses with the same green tag on their backside. Does that mean they came from Camelot, or do other auctions use the same tag? I shut my eyes and said a little prayer as I drove past that they were on their way to a rescue farm like yours, and not on their way to being shipped out of the country...

Normally the owner of Camelot wants the horses out of his place by Sunday if they are being rescued but if it was 2 trailers with only about 6 horses each I highly doubt they were going out of the country (most guys like to ship atleast 20 at a time). Since it was Monday it's possible they were coming or going from New Holland. It's been awhile since I was at NH, and for the life of me I can't remember if they put the green usda tags on there butt there or at a different location. Just try to think that they were on their way to a rescue, it makes things alot easier. I hauled horses up to NY a few weeks ago and seeing 2 double deck trailers (empty) coming back from Canada was the worst feeling in the world, but I knew that atleast the 3 horses in our trailer had been saved from Camelot and were going to a wonderful new home.

Speaking of Camelot, there was an article in Horse News, April edition, about an outbreak of EHV-1 killing 3 horses and that it stemmed from Camelot. Just something to be careful with.

A few Camelot horses have been sick, but it didn't actually stem from Camelot. I believe it came from Florida (I'm trying to think back and FL may not be correct). A few farms have been state QT'd (they should be out of it by now).
