DELAWARE TOWNSHIP, NJ (Hunterdon County) – Fire responders assisted with getting a fallen horse back on it’s feet Wednesday morning at Good Manners Farm in Delaware Township.
“While doing a regular trim of the hind hooves, Tamale, who suffers from a neurological condition, fell down,” according to a post on the Good Manners Farm Facebook page.
The Flemington-Raritan First Aid and Rescue Squad and Sergeantsville Volunteer Fire Company used heavy rigging equipment, a Grip Hoist, come-along, a Paratech aluminum wale used as a lifting beam, and the strength of a few people got the horse back to it’s feet, Flemington-Raritan First Aid and Rescue Squad said on their Facebook page.
“The operation was conducted under the supervision of an equine veterinarian. At last check, the horse was doing well,” the post said.
