Important News



You can make a difference in the life of a horse!


If you are interested in Adopting:

We appreciate your desire to offer a lifetime of love and care for an equine in need!  Horses live into their 30's on average and ponies and mules can live to 40, so we appreciate your consideration of that fact. It is painful for a horse to be uprooted from his family and friends and is especially difficult as the horse ages.  Please look to make a lifetime commitment monetarily, physically and emotionally.

Please send via email with attachments or snail mail the following to be considered:

  1. Name, address, phone

  2. age

  3. riding experience

  4. horse care experience

  5. professional references

  6. personal references

  7. proof of income

  8. driver's license number

  9. pictures of your facilities and other horses if you have any,

  10. a copy of your last vet/farrier bill if you have horses, if not, then the name and number of the vet and farrier you plan to use,

  11. copy of utility bill to show proof of residence

  12. address of prospective housing for adopted horse(s) and name, phone number if boarding barn (or another's property)

  13. full description of your dream horse!

Again,  if you are looking for a show jumping mare you can breed next year and then sell please do NOT contact us!  However, if you are seeking a friend to whom you will remain loyal to even when they cannot do the job you once asked of them...feel free to contact us.             

   Amaryllis Farm Equine Rescue

44 Little Fresh Pond Road

 Southampton, NY 11968

 Did you know that Gamal, pictured below worked for years at Coney Island as a driving horse and was later saved from a slaughter pen?  Powderface was never found.  Shiloh was saved along with Gamal.  I was a little girl when I read about this and I always cry thinking about it.

We protect the horses we are entrusted with.

Sponsor a farm animal!  We have many ducks, chickens, pigs, goats and more looking for a forever family to love and support them!

If you cannot take a horse home you can:

 ADOPT a SANCTUARY HORSE and this horse become your "own" (though they remain at Amaryllis) $6000 yearly covers one horse's expenses.

Ten requests from your horse...

1. I wish to be with you all the days of my life. Separation from you is painful for me.
2. Give me time to understand what you wish from me. I love you, please be patient. I am trying
my best.
3. Trust in me as I trust in you.
4. Don't be angry with me, I love you and need you. You are all I have.
5. Talk with me, tell me your dreams and hopes. I want to be there as they come true. I will never
leave you.
6. Treat me with respect so I can honor you.
7. I am so sensitive, a small fly can upset me so! Please never strike me. I am here to serve you.
I love you.
8. If I act out of character, please try to find out if something is hurting me or if I have a reason. I
am never "bad" without good reason.
9. Take care of me when I am old, you have been my life. I will need you more as aches and
pains begin. I would never leave you.
10. Be with me as I take my last journey. Please be brave and strong for me as I was for you in
my youth. Allow me my dignity.
Hold my head and tell me of the wondrous place I will go to await you. I love you and I will
wait for you. When your time finally comes...
I would be honored to carry you into Heaven my trusted friend.
