What`s going on



After such a terribly wet winter its nice to have some good weather and its remarkable how quickly the fields have dried out.Our most venerable thoroughbred Arthur as well as our oldest boys Sidney and Tappy have been well refreshed by being out munching at grass again.

Our two newest Horses:Blossom and Minty have settled in very well indeed.Blossom now resides with Bobby and Teeka, whilst Minty plays happily in the pony field and has already found a great friend in Winston.

Just a reminder about our Fashion Show at Long Clawson village Hall on Friday 4th June. More details can be found on the events- fashion show  tab it promises to be a terrific evening.

We would like to say a huge thank you to S and J Haulage a long running local firm who have most kindly supplied us with materials and also a rather terrific fence mender!

Pablo`s gives away the best Horse manure in the local counties so come and get it while its free! You are more than welcome to take away any quantity from us free of charge any day of the week before 12.30pm.We do have pre-bagged manure which there is a very small charge for, dont miss this opportunity to treat your vegetables and plants!

Anyone in Melton Mowbray on Saturday`s should look out for our charity stall and maybe spend a few moments talking to our founder Carole Fielding.We would love to meet more people who follow our cause so please come over and introduce yourself.

We are currently looking for sponsors for fundraisers,could this be you or can you help? Could you add your company name to a turn out rug or a running vest and promote our charity as well as your business? if so please contact us we would love to hear from you.


Two New Homes

Weetabix and Rocky

Rocky and Weetabix have not been with us long but they soon found a place within our hearts with there striking looks and character.
Both are being re-homed to a family in Warwickshire who will be able to give these young lads a very happy life.

Congratulations to our Runners of the `Vale of Belvoir` half Marathon on Sunday April 11th who along with getting us sponsor money managed very good race times.

Every little thing really does help and we would like to say a huge thank you to Merton Group Ltd for their donation of products to us and supporting a local charity.

Also a huge thank you to The Melton Times who have supported us strongly for quite a few years and we cannot thank enough.We have so many kind people and companies who we wish to say thank you to for all they do for us, you are all so highly appreciated for all you do to help.

Summer finally looks like it is on its way and the Horses and Ponies are happy playing again in the fields.We are still on the look out for more volunteers so if `Poo Picking` in the sunshine with the lovely vale of Belvoir as a backdrop takes your fancy give us a holler at the `Contact us` tab.If you can knock a nail in straight, fancy standing with a collecting tin,baking Jam tarts or handy with a spade or fork we would love to hear from you!

One Welcome and Two New Homes

Our newcomer Blossom

A huge welcome to our new resident, she is a lovely Horse named Blossom.

Blossom was a brood mare who spent life tied up by the travellers who owned her and used year upon year for nothing but giving birth to new foals.Eventually rescued by a kind Gentleman who had no permanent place for her contacted Pablo`s, we were touched by the love and devotion of this gentleman to give Blossom a second chance in life  that we could not say no.

We hope Blossom is very happy with us and we hope to give her the new start in life she so much deserves


On a different note we say goodbye and a very happy new home to two of our lovely ladies.Rosie and Gypsy the two inseparable girls are going to a new home in North Wales with one of our helpers who has recently moved there.We know Rosie and Gypsy and going to be very happy and very well looked after, we love stories with happy endings!


Just a `heads up `to say our fashion Show tickets are now available from Long Clawson Village Shop or by contacting us by Email.Tickets are priced at a brilliant £5.00 which includes a complimentary drink.Don`t miss this fabulous event!

Finally good luck to our sponsored runners who are running the vale of Belvoir Half-marathon this Sunday(April 11th).Anyone wishing to sponsor us should contact us and we will send you the sponsorship forms.Big thank you to Hose village hall who we will be seeing later in the year at Hosefest(Hose fete Saturday 3rd July)

Ladies Fashion Show

Ladies Fashion Show and Sale

Friday June 4th, mark it on your Calendars! Pablo’s is proud to announce our first Fashion show and Sale to be held at Long Clawson, Village Hall.

Don`t worry we wont be taking the wellies off, all the models are professionals and we aim to give everyone a great night out in aid of a great cause. Anyone wishing for tickets who cannot get them from Long Clawson should contact our inquiries Email at . Tickets will not be going on sale however until after the Easter period we will be announcing on this site when they are purchasable.

Do not miss this fabulous event!

An increased number of arrivals coupled with doing more fundraising than ever has left us desperate for more fresh pairs of hands.

We urgently need people to help fundraise with us- now that does not necessarily mean parachute jumps or running Marathons! We need people who don’t mind perhaps holding a collecting tin or helping for a few hours on a stall.

We also need volunteers to help on the yard-so if you don’t mind hard work coupled with good fun all in a good cause give us a holler via our contact details on this website. There is also a section on volunteering on this site and should answer some of the questions you may have regarding working for us.

A Big thank you to our fundraising team for their collection in Loughborough, it turned out to be quite a success and a big “Hi” to everyone we met that day and kindly donated to us.
