We are having to keep him either walked/on lead or inside in the small back arena during his stall breaks. Lately he is feeling better and has more energy. But he will attempt to run which obviously is bad. Here is Zeus today walking back into his stall. A lot of progress. A long way still to go. If you can help by either donating or sharing, or both please look at the link our profile. Zeus will never be sold, will never leave our ownership, and regardless if he ends up rideable or not this will help him live out a full and happy life! #freedomfarm

She’s got the kindest heart. I learned today that a lot of people would have put Zeus down. From the time she saw Zeus her heart opened for him. No way was that gonna happen for Zeus because we crossed his path! Thanks for everyone who’s been donating to help get this fella healthy!!!! #freedomfarm #kindness

Meet Harold. He has forgotten more than most will ever know. Had a stroke several years back that dr. said at his age he wouldn’t recover from. He never gave up. His ol mule didn’t have to big of a head start on him either. He’s been a great friend to the family for a long long time. He can’t explain much to ya anymore due to the stroke because it won’t come out right. But he’s still real sharp with his mules. He’s got two youngsters(this one. Lol) a 33 year old, and recently lost one that was over 40!!! #harold #freedomfarm #chasevehicle

Talked with the vet today who first saw Zeus. At the time he was barely walking and nearly on 3 legs. Today he said progress looks good and to keep doing more of the same. In approx 6 weeks he will X-ray Zeus again and compare to the original. We also upped his feed/supplements today and also added a hay bag to keep him hay 24/7. #progress #zeus #gofundme #freedomfarm

החמלה והרגישות הן תכונות כל כך טבעיות אצל בעלי החיים. אצלנו משהו השתבש בדרך. כמה רגשות יש ביצורים המדהימים האלו?! סימפתיה, געגועים, כעס, חמלה, אהבה, שמחת חיים... ועדיין לאנשים אין בעיה לקחת את חייהם לסיפוק הרעבתנות. לא אבין זאת לעולם... נראה שיש לרבים באמת על מה לכפר, והפתרון הוא לא לצום, אלא לתקן את דרכם. *בסרטון, גארי המקסים מפריד בין שתי תרנגולות הודו כועסות. #govegan #freedomfarm #חוותהחופש . . . . . . . #freeanimals #freedom #veganism #veganwoman #animalslove

This is why rescues like @faithnfriendz need help and support. It isn’t cheap, but it beats the alternative option for Bertie. This is just the first visit. We are glad to be able to help on our end. One of the main challenges was a 3x daily feed in addition to grazing. Every day. We got the grass and we got the time! #freedomfarm

Very knowledgeable, and most importantly eager to educate and lend advice. Getting ready to check Bertie for pregnancy since it was found she was bread earlier this year. Great news....she WAS NOT! #freedomfarm

This ex race thoroughbred has a story. Personally we don’t know the full details. We have limited details as here history is being looked into. She’s underweight big time and needing a lot of attention. She will be boarded with us a while as the vet keeps close contact and so that we can monitor her 3 times daily feed/supplement diet and keep her on quality grass. Short story is she was a race horse. Won some races. Then was used as a broodmare. She was bred again this year and apparently that wasn’t successful and she ended up in sale after sale. It’s a beautiful thing to see horses race. However it’s terrible how a large number of these things end up used up and starving because they no longer can make a dollar for someone. If you have the large amount of money it takes to race horses.....then spend money on the back end to let your horse, your responsibility live out it’s life peacefully once it can’t perform at its peak. It’s a shame. Everyone wants to make money, just mix some heart, morals, and ethics in with that. #freedomfarm

With 13 ducks, 2 roosters, 3 hens(two of which are nesting) comes a lot of clean up. Our flock is about to really expand with the chickens, and shown here is duck eggs that in a few days should have a nesting duck on them. But...every couple days, every day if it rains we clean out the nightly duck hotels. Keeps the smell away, flies away, and ducks clean and happy. During the day they go down and spend the days on the pond. Here is that process in picture #freedomfarm #cleanup #ducks #ducksquad #ducksofinstagram #mallards #pekingduck #notfood #eggs #farmraised #freerange #happy

Tal and I went to volunteer at Freedom Farm today. For those of you who are not familiar with it, it's a farm sanctuary and an educational center to help people connect with industrial animals again. To help people see them beyond another "product" and realize it's a soul. They think, they feel, they love, they play, they learn (they are very smart! 🤓). Each animal in the farm has a story of how it got there. Most of the stories I heard today really broke my heart but I'm glad they're going to spend the rest of their lives here, safe and happy. Video will be up on my channel soon. 📹 #freedomfarm #animalsanctuary #farmsanctuary

We love the fact that we are able to provide a place for owners who love their aging horse enough to ensure it never has to worry about anything. Many of these beautiful aging horses are permanently boarded with us. Sure, the owner has a monthly expense until the horse peacefully and happily passes away. It’s a small price pay. The retired guys start at about 13 years of age and go up to 27 years old! They get to interact, be bathed, brushed, walked, and everything in between. Is it cheaper to just sell once it starts aging? It is. You put some money in your pocket and the horse goes on his way. It isn’t a great ending for them. They don’t end up how you see here . Many people don’t know that. If we can help you please let us know. We have great references. #freedomfarm #retiredinpeace

Today we cut the 20 Acre field that we use for rotation with the horses. With the big commercial zero turn it takes about 5 total hours. Past that is a field used primarily for hay. #freedomfarm
