Rain Man, a registered Miniature Horse born April 1, 1990, is not only our official greeter, but he is also one of Equine Advocates original founding horses. Rain Main was first rescued by a Staten Island resident from an abusive situation at a stable on Staten Island. When she could no longer keep him, she contacted Susan Wagner who took him in 1994, two years before she founded Equine Advocates. It is fitting that Rain Man is near the entrance of the sanctuary, not just because he has “seniority,” but also because of his unique vocal qualities in “talking” to almost everyone as they arrive!
