A few years ago we were asked to take a young pony who had been kept chained to railings 24 hours a day and was being abused by local youngsters.
We thought he had found his forever home twice but both times he came back through absolutely no fault of his own. That was until the lovely Katherine came to the yard to donate loads of horse rugs. She saw Domino and fell in love. Domino now has an amazing home where he is much loved. Katherine has kindly sent us some pictures of Domino with his horsey mates!
Harvey was another unwanted but lovely and cheeky young pony who we took in. He was unhandled but very pretty and needed love and understanding. He soon found it though with the wonderful Chel and Jackie. Two special ladies who several times a year load their horse box with goodies and come down to us from Bedford. This one time Harvey went back with them, where he is being expertly brought on and educated, loved and ridden by Amy-his Number 1 fan!
To everyone who helps us in any way – however small – please accept our love and sincere thanks.
The long winter we had and a series of high vet bills has taken its toll on our finances and we are seriously struggling. To this end, we would like to say a very special thank you to the lovely Deanna who recently held a fundraising night at the Flying Horse Indian Restaurant at Markfield. This raised over £1000 which was an amazing result for Pablo’s, and for this we are eternally grateful.
If you would like to hold a fundraising event to help Pablo’s we would love to hear from you.
Pablo’s would like to thank all the volunteers who gave up their time over Easter to help raise much needed funds. A huge thanks to John and the ladies for doing collections at Nottingham Theatre where War Horse was showing. They did amazingly well!
Another big thanks to Jane and Joan who did a tombola at the Elwes Arms pub in Carlton, due to the kindness of landlady Beccy Webster.
Pablo’s would like to express their gratitude to Lucy Reynolds – Equine Sports Massage Therapist for their generous donation. Lucy Reynolds is a fully qualified and insured ESMT (ICAT dip), gaining distinctions in all 3 exams. Based in Quorn covering Leicestershire and beyond. Donations like this are the reason Pablo’s is able to continue providing rescues with the care and love they require.
Here at Pablo’s we depend on the generosity and hard work of all our volunteers…whatever the weather!
It is hard work but extremely rewarding. We are always on the lookout for new volunteers, so if you love the outdoors, beautiful animals and regular cups of tea please get in touch! Contact Carole for more information: 07745 628684.
Hello to everyone out there who loves an evening of fun and facts! Our first quiz night of 2018 will take place on Wednesday 14th March. It would be great to see you there!
Amazon….Pablo’s would like to send a huge thank you to everyone who has donated, volunteered and contributed in any way to the continued running of the horse sanctuary. It takes a big effort from all concerned to ensure that our animals have everything they need. This effort is now more important than ever as the winter continues and resources run low.
Therefore, we would like to remind you of the many ways in which you can help out.
You can donate directly to Pablo’s, but you can also contribute to the vet bills directly. If you wish to contribute directly to Pablo’s vet bills you can make arrangements with The Crescent Veterinary Clinic, based in Melton Mowbray. Their website can be found here: http://www.crescentvets.co.uk/index.html or you can contact them on 01664 562 142.
If you wish to contribute directly to Pablo’s food bills you can make arrangements with Buttercup Feeds, based in Melton Mowbray. Their website can be found here: http://www.buttercupfeeds.co.uk/home or you can contact them on 01664 481 206.
We are also looking to raise £7,500 to build much needed winter horse shelters and secure fencing. This will keep our rescued horses and ponies more comfortable and safe. This fundraising is being done through JustGiving.com and the page can be found here.
And there is also the Amazon Wish List which lists many essential items we rely upon week in, week out: Amazon.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Pablo’s!
