We treat them with the Love
and Respect they Deserve
Amaryllis Farm has been in
operation since 1989 as an educational facility who's motto was always:
...where horsemanship begins! Horses were saved from auction 1-2
at a time, rehabilitated and placed in forever homes. Quality has
always been the focus of Amaryllis...never quantity.
rescue efforts began in June of 2005 in memory of Rascal...the love of
my life. In 2009 we opened Long Island's first Horse Sanctuary for
senior and special needs equines in memory of Aramis. In 2010 we
opened the first Farm Sanctuary on the east end in memory of Daisy.
We survive day to day striving for strength and stability to ensure the
horses with us now and those to come SECURITY, PEACE and FULL CARE.
Our mission is to intercept slaughter bound former service horses,
ponies and mules (lesson, children's camp, show, race, police, carriage
horses) and find them loving homes under the protection of our contract.
We offer permanent sanctuary to those equines unable to adapt to an
adoptive home, the elderly and special needs equines. We accept
back all Amaryllis previously adopted horses when asked. This sets us
apart. We have a vision for the future of every horse ever to
enter Amaryllis, that they will forever be able to return to the
sanctuary, never again to face harm. Help us build this sanctuary
strong for them. It has become apparent over the many years that
people discard horses like old clothes. Purchased or adopted.
Promises are broken especially fast when a horse can no longer be ridden
or 'used'. Amaryllis is here for these horses. Our wish is
to care for their ever increasing needs as they age, while educating the
community and new generations of children about the importance of the
horse nation. You wouldn't send your grandmother out into the
forest with no shoes or coat and without her dentures, telling her
"Happy trails, you are 'out to pasture' good luck!" Horses age identical
to humans. They cannot eat hay and grass as their teeth worsen,
they cannot deal with barefoot issues on hard terrain when their shoes
are removed after 20 yrs. They die slow, painful, neglected
deaths. We wish a high maintenance care for every horse in
Amaryllis as they age. A hospice to the bridge. Love to the end.
We present educational lectures
throughout Long Island and focus strongly on teaching children to treat
all animals with dignity and compassion.
Slaughter isn't euthansia. Horsemeat eating European's
desire young horses. Puppy mills have nothing on horse breeders. The
humans hauling and butchering the horses enjoy it.
The most outspoken are those who profit from their murder. The
least heard are those who fight the depravity from within the barns of
our nation's rescued horses. We need YOUR VOICE and we need YOUR
excited to announce the addition of the Hart's Cove equestrian
gated community in East Moriches boasts 15 acres of superbly fenced
ALL PASTURE, enormous paddocks and an eight stall barn within it's
55 lush acres. As the
largest horse rescue and the only horse sanctuary on Long Island we
were honored to be asked to take over this farm. For many
years to come, numerous horses will reside in luxury....where once
they were stepping onto a slaughter bound truck! We are so
Sierra is among the many excited horses to move in!
