POHATCONG TWP., N.J. — Sunday, Oct. 7 is the date for Mylestone Equine Rescue’s 19th Open House. The annual event will be held from 12 to 4 p.m. at their farm in Pohatcong, N.J., rain or shine.
For anyone who’s ever wanted to meet a horse up-close and personal, this is your opportunity. But the horses at Mylestone are not just any horses — they are all rescued horses who once faced cruelty, starvation, the auction, or slaughter. But wait ‘til you see them now! With love and good care, their beauty shines through, and on this special day, when the farm is open to the public, they look forward to showing you how far they’ve come.
Visitors can also participate in Mylestone’s huge silent auction, featuring baskets, crafts, art, and much more; an always-popular bake sale, and more. Mylestone volunteers are stationed throughout the farm to introduce you to the horses and tell you all about them. Meeting a horse for the first time is always a special treat for youngsters. There are refreshments available — options for a light lunch and plenty of beverages during the event.
There is no admission fee to Open House, but the horses, many of whom once suffered starvation, ask that you bring one or more cans of soup to help feed the hungry people in the area.

Note: Dogs are not allowed at Open House. The horses are not familiar with them, and could spook, causing injury to themselves, other horses, visitors or volunteers.
