We are pleased to announce that we have very kindly been allowed to run the raffle at Melton’s New Year’s Eve Party again at the Market Tavern in the Cattle Market, Melton Mowbray. A great night is planned, so come and join in with the fun at tomorrow night’s celebrations. Back by popular demand are “The Platforms” who will be performing alongside a variety of acts. We have had some great raffle prizes donated this year and all the money raised from the raffle will go towards helping the horses. So please, if you see Ruth, one of our volunteers, at the Market Tavern working her way through the crowds, be sure to purchase a few tickets and good luck!!!
Many thanks to all the volunteers who came down to the Yard and helped to care for the horses on Christmas Day. This enabled all the tasks to be completed quickly and for the horses to have a Christmas treat with their feeds at lunchtime. As you can see our Daisy got really festive whilst enjoying her Christmas lunch!!
At last the freezing temperatures have gone away and the water pipes have defrosted, so there is now running water back on the yard – hurray – no more carrying water from the brook and frozen-solid water buckets!! Just in time, as this weekend all the horses will come off the fields to spend the Winter months on the Yard which makes it the busiest time of the year for the volunteers. Volunteering is a great way to get fit, and cheaper than those Gym fees, so if you feel that you would like to come down and give a helping hand, please give Carole a call or an email, we’d love to see you there.
On behalf of all the horses and ponies at Pablo’s we would like to wish you a happy New Year and all the best for 2011.
