Watch: First responders help horse that had fallen in Hunterdon County

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.

“Kudos to my farrier Jason Aversa and his assistants, Dr Jess Martin and staff from Mountain Pointe Equine Veterinary Services, to the Flemington- Raritan Heavy Rescue Squad and to the Sergeantsville Volunteer Fire Co. Squad 47 who worked as a team to help get Tamale back on his feet. It is the empathy and solidarity of a community that makes the world a better place. Thank you all,” Good Manners Farm said.
