All the horses and ponies are well, and after a week of more wet weather it was nice to see a bit of sunshine on Sunday.
It was a big day on Sunday for Arian and Lilly, as our fantastic Fix-It team finished fencing their new small paddock (complete with field shelter) ready for them both. After walking over to her new paddock with Arian, with a little skip Lilly felt grass beneath her feet for the first time. As for Arian, well she just put her head down and grazed, whilst Lilly played around her. We are so pleased that Lilly is such a confident little filly, very inquisitive and takes everything in her stride.
Two of the residents at the yard in Long Clawson, Freeway and Jiffy have gone on their summer holidays. Both were transported there on Saturday for their summer grazing in a field in Melton Mowbray, and have settled in and are now in holiday-mode. They will be returned to the yard later in the year to take up their Winter accommodation for a few months. Both Freeway and Jiffy have big personalities and are missed by the volunteers (the yard seems a bit quieter now), but it is good to know that they are enjoying themselves in beautiful surroundings.
One of our long-standing volunteers, Ruth and her husband Cliff, will be celebrating their 25th Wedding Anniversary on Saturday 14th July. Ruth and Cliff would like to invite all volunteers at Pablo’s Horse Sanctuary to join them at the Melton Conservative Club on the Saturday 14th July at 7.30pm, for a fantastic night with entertainment from Bakers Treat. A raffle is to be held on the night in aid of Pablo’s with some super prizes on offer. Congratulations to Ruth and Cliff and thank you for all your continued support.
We would like to thank all the fantastic residents of Severn Hill Close in Melton Mowbray, who held a street party for the Jubilee Celebrations in aid of Pablo’s. A raffle was also held and £81 was raised. You’re all stars.
Our volunteer, Wendy was due to hold Pablo’s New and Nearly New Equine Stall at the re-scheduled Soar Valley Riding Club show on Sunday, but unfortunately this was cancelled due to the weather yet again! The next planned stall will be at Sutton Bonington Show on Sunday 17th June, to be held off the Gotham Road , near East Leake. We have had some great equine equipment donated recently, so do pop over and have a look and see if you can get yourself a bargain.
If you would like to help the horses and ponies at Pablo’s, we are always looking for people to hold car boot sales on our behalf. If you are able to give your time, we could supply you with good quality items to sell, that have kindly been donated. Please contact Carole if you are able to help.
Thank you this week to our super car booters, Ken and Ann Johnston who raised £53 and to Sally Renner for her kind donation of £30.
Have a good week.
