Freedom Hill Horse Rescue, Inc. was established by Melody Parrish, Chrystal Hill and Harry Hill as a Non-Profit Organization in late 2004.
As awareness of the PMU, Nurse Mare Foal and Slaughter industry increased, we realized we could use our experiences in the horse industry to help the cause for these abused horses as well as improving living conditions for other at risk horses and or small farm animals.
Several farms are involved in these efforts collectively know as Freedom Hill Horse Rescue, Inc.
Grovers Turn Barn is a leased property that includes a three stall barn with tack/feed rooms, 3 rolling acres and a fenced paddock area.
Hampton Plantation is a leased property that includes a stone dust arena, round pen, two paddocks with board fencing and a small barn with two stalls and separate tack room.
Horses can then be handled frequently and watched closely for any health issues to arise.
Lord Baltimore barn is a leased property that includes 4 acres of pasture, a dry lot paddock with a small two stall barn with separate tack room.
Chaneyville barn is a leased property that includes a two stall barn and 4 acres of rolling pasture.
Many of our horses are also kept in foster homes. If you are interested in fostering any of our horses, please contact us via email. You will be responsible for caring for the horse as if it were your own and all expenses you incur will be considered a tax deductible donation to Freedom Hill.
We have joined forces with rescues around the country and are members of the Horse Rescue Coalition.
Our horses are rescued from neglect, abuse, slaughter, and from places that end up with unwanted horses and foals.
Here are some reasons why so many horses and foals find their way to rescues like FHHR:
1) PMU Industry: Pregnant Mare Urine (PMU) provides hormones in medicine, but the foal is cast off...
2) Slaughter Industry : Europeans buy horsemeat for human consumption-- considered a delicacy -- which encourages the slaughter of over 90,000 horses per year. Horses are shipped across US borders to Mexico and Canada to meet a brutal end.
3) Surrender or Seizure: When owners can no longer care for their horses where do they go? The answers are all over this site -- in Adopted and Horse Stories, Available, New Arrivals . . . .
4) Nurse Mare Foals: Expensive brood mares do not nurse their own foals -- a nurse mare does, so the brood mare can be put back into the show ring. But what happens to the nurse mare's own foal?
We hope that you find our website both informative and enjoyable. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at any time! We are always in need of donations and volunteers!
