Maui Meadow, Pennsylvania's Oldest Working Thoroughbred Farm Since 1946

WEST CHESTER, Pa.--Maui Meadow Farm is located on over 65 acres of beautiful land in the heart of Chester County. 

Maui 1For nearly 75 years, Maui Meadow Farm has been and still stands as the oldest working Thoroughbred farm in Pennsylvania.

We are proud to celebrate over 70 years of promoting the thoroughbred breed!

Maui Meadow specializes in equine rehabilitation, with extensive knowledge of unique injury cases.

The farm also offers low-key and comfortable boarding options, fitness programs in its indoor equine swimming pool, and training off-the-track thoroughbreds.

We welcome all breeds of horses while offering many services with diverse, experienced, and competent staff on hand.

Here at Maui Meadow, we strive to accommodate our client's needs and wishes which include rehabilitation, nutrition, grooming, and personalized care at an included cost to owners.

We guide our horses to reach their maximum potential under any circumstance in a caring and soft manner.

Maui 2Whether your horse is on the mend or are in need of training, we have a program to suit every owner and every horse.

In 1946 just after World War II ended, General Charles B. Lyman, a native of Hawaii, sought out the perfect place in Pennsylvania to start what is now Maui Meadow Farm.

He migrated from his home in Hawaii to Pennsylvania to establish what is known as the "Oldest Working Thoroughbred Farm in Pennsylvania".

Maui 3The farm's history is like none other, just as the dedication towards the horses in its care.

Set in picturesque Chester County, Maui Meadow Farm is not your "typical" boarding facility.

Specializing in the rehabilitation of injuries in horses as well as a structured and personalized experience, the atmosphere is a quiet, piece of land and a breath of fresh air to all who visit and those who reside on its sprawling 65 acres.

The farm is currently managed by third-generation horseman Charles B. Lyman III, and his mother, Erika Lyman.

The Lyman's have a long history with the thoroughbred breed and dedication like no other, excelling in breeding, racing, and showing their thoroughbreds since the 1930s at prestigious shows such as The Devon Horse Show and Madison Square Garden, additionally, judging many rated shows.

Brandywine Valley SPCA Leads Expansion of Lifesaving in Pennsylvania

Brandywine Valley SPCA (BVSPCA) is celebrating a benchmark on the path to expanding lifesaving in the Commonwealth.

SPCA adoptionSince affiliating with the Humane Society of Harrisburg Area (HSHA) late last year, leadership has launched new policies and programs aimed at increasing lifesaving for the organization, which has been serving Central Pennsylvania for more than 100 years.

In the first quarter of 2024, HSHA reached a 93% Live Release Rate, celebrating 478 adoptions, and performing 862 spay and neuter surgeries aimed at slowing the number of unplanned litters in the community.

“We are so proud to reach these lifesaving benchmarks, but the work is just beginning, and we are committed to taking the steps necessary to bring our proven track record as a leader in animal welfare, and no-kill mission to this community,” said Adam Lamb, BVSPCA Chief Executive Officer and HSHA Executive Director.

New initiatives brought to HSHA include open adoption policies and dropping breed labeling for dogs to remove barriers to adoption, and focus on helping potential adopters find the right match for their homes.

SPCA open houseHSHA is also expanding spay and neuter surgeries for owned pets and community cats.

The evolution in these key areas has also allowed HSHA to launch the Second Chance Program, which pulls local and national animals from shelters where they are at risk due to time, space, or behavior, giving them another opportunity to find their forever home.

“We can’t take on ambitious goals like this, and continue to expand lifesaving for the animals of Pennsylvania without the support of the community,” Lamb said. “We are counting on those in the Central Pennsylvania community to embrace the partnership by supporting HSHA through adopting and donating, not only financially, but also with their time by serving as volunteers and fosters.”

SPCA 4Brandywine Valley SPCA and Humane Society of Harrisburg Area welcome adopters, donors, fosters, and volunteers to join this effort in expanding resources and care for animals across the Commonwealth.

Donations can be made to the respective organizations.

Get fecal egg counts for worming from Horsemen's Laboratory

Parasite resistance to dewormers in horses has been developing for some time due to selective breeding.

Horsemen 1What this means is that each time we deworm a horse or group of horses with a certain medication we are killing off the sensitive parasites and allow those few that are resistant to the medication to continue to multiply.

Horsemen 2Therefore, each time you deworm the resistant parasites compose a larger percentage of worms.

Without doing fecal egg count checks first, you do not know whether your horse has worms or at what level (high, medium or low) of shedder you have so you can target those parasites effectively.

Then doing a fecal check after deworming determines if the deworming product was effective to kill off the parasites.

horsemen 3HORSEMEN’S LABORATORY has made it affordable and convenient to have fecal egg counts done on your horses for over 20 years.

Visit www.horsemenslab.com or call (800) 544-0599 and take advantage of this great service to help protect your horse from worms.

Hay Pillow, best for all grazing animals

Although Hay Pillow slow feed bags were designed initially for horses, mules and donkeys, our customers quickly found that farm and zoo animals loved eating from them, and enjoyed the same physical and mental benefits.

H pill 1hay 1Plus, wasting less hay saves money - and that benefits everyone.

Foraging by Design - Browsers Vs. Grazers

Because herbivores are prey animals, sight is one of their main forms of defense.

Considering they are designed to forage for 16 to 20 hours a day, their head, neck and eye placement is designed to maximize their vision while foraging to detect predators.

H pill 2hay 2Browsers - such as goats, alpacas, llamas and camels - are designed to primarily forage on leaves, buds and twigs from shrubs, bushes or trees.

Therefore, their eyes are positioned centered and more upright on their head with their neck naturally in a more upright position.

Grazing animals - such as sheep, horses, donkeys, mules and zebras - are designed to primarily forage on grasses and vegetation in close proximity to the ground.

H pill 3hay 3 - their eyes are positioned high on the sides of the head with a lower natural neck position.

Although browsers graze and grazers browse, always consider your animal's natural design when choosing a slow feeder.

By providing free-choice forage, you will have a healthier, more content herd with the bonus of no longer being committed to multiple feedings day and night!

All 4 Paws Rescue Celebrates 15 Year Anniversary

MALVERN, Pa.--Founded in May, 2009, All 4 Paws Rescue of Malvern, Pa., is celebrating its 15th Anniversary!

4 paws 1All 4 Paws Rescue is a non-profit, foster-based, all-breed, no-kill animal rescue based in Malvern, Pa., that offers rescue, rehabilitation, and sanctuary to animals in need.

Our goal is to offer each and every one of our animals a safe, permanent and loving home.

Since inception, All 4 Paws Rescue has saved nearly 16,000 needy animals and continues to grow and save lives daily.

For most of the animals rescued by All 4 Paws, we are their last chance.

Many reside in shelters that are not even open to the public but are instead holding facilities where the animals go to die.

Many come from commercial breeding facilities that throw them away like trash when they are no longer useful for breeding purposes or not fit for sale.

Puppies, purebreds, family pets - these are animals you would never expect to end up in these horrible situations but it is a sad reality.

Through our extensive rescue network, All 4 Paws has developed relationships nationwide that allow us to save countless lives that would otherwise have been ended.

4 paws 2As an all foster based rescue, All 4 Paws Rescue relies on foster homes to save the lives of countless animals who would otherwise die without our help.

The All 4 Paws Rescue foster program is also a lifeline for sick or injured animals that may need extra time before being adopted.

With the love and care of devoted foster families, these once helpless animals can thrive.

There is no greater feeling than releasing these wonderful animals into a safe yard and watching them run and play as they should.

4 paws 3They sleep curled up in soft beds in our homes when hours before they laid on concrete floors.

They feel grass beneath their feet when many have never experienced the outdoors.

Having never known freedom or a full belly, they are so very thankful.

This is why we at All 4 Paws Rescue do what we do - because they all deserve a home.

If you are interested in adopting or joining our team as a volunteer or foster family, please visit our website for more information. www.all4pawsrescue.com or go to https://fb.watch/s3yuvCpO9r/
