All the horses and ponies are well. Lady has now finished her course of antibiotics and her wound is crystalising nicely, although her leg still needs to be bandaged for the next two to three weeks, with frequent bandage changes. Lady is still kept in her stable at night, but enjoys her time on the yard during the day as she is able to walk around and exercise at her pace which is all helping to heal her wound.
Our volunteer Wendy held Pablo’s new and nearly new equine stall at Riverside Riding Club on Saturday 25th February and raised £65. A big thank you to Bekky and all of the liveries and customers for ther continued support. Next week, on Sunday 4th March Wendy will be holding our stall at the Point to Point day at Garthorpe, hosted by the Cottesmore Hunt – so if you see Wendy please pop over and say hello. And don’t forget on the 10th March Wendy and the stall is at The Equine car boot at the Polish club Sandy Lane Melton.
A big thank you this week to Joanne from Farnfield in Newark for holding fundraising events, and raising a total of £30, also a huge thank you to anonymous person for their kind donation of £10, which is regularly pushed through Carole’s letterbox in a sealed blank evevelope – we have no idea who you are but your gift is really appreciated.
A special thank you to Lou, one of our youngest volunteers who helps out on a Sunday with her older sister Jodie, for raising an amazing £57 from organising a cake and small toy sale, in aid of Pablo’s Horse Sanctuary, at her school, Danehill Primary School in Leicester last week. Lou you’re a star!
For those of you who sponsor a horse or pony, or give a gift each month on the Standing Order Scheme, the quarterly newsletter is being produced , so over the next couple of week you’ll need to start looking out of the postman! And if you fancy a bit of gardening, don’t forget Pablos has well-rotted manure which your plants will love – and as much as you want just for a small donation. If you would like some, please contact Carole to arrange a collection time.
Every donation, large or small is so greatly appreciated and 100% of monies are spent on the welfare of the horses and ponies. Unfortunately, in this current financial climate, and with receiving only one donation of hay over the Winter period (thank you Dr Gallop), the funds needed to run the Sanctuary are nearly depleted. If you could offer any help, donation or could organise some fundraising it would really be appreciated. The Sanctuary has taken on many horses and ponies this year, which with feed and hay prices nearly doubling as well as bills going up in general, it is a struggle financially to keep the Sanctuary running. If you can offer any help please contact Carole.
Have a good week
