All the horses and ponies are well over this past week. As Winter is approaching, all the horses and ponies have now started to be rugged up, to keep them warm as the weather is becoming more seasonable. As we have many large horses, we are always needing extra rugs for 6′, 6’6″ and 6’9″ in good condition, if you have any large rugs that you could donate please could you get in touch with Carole (no jute rugs).
It has been recently reported that each year 65,000 horses are driven vast distances across Europe to slaughter. Exhausted, often diseased, injured, stressed and travelling for days over thousands of kilometres: these horses are desperate for food, water and rest. This is a truly shocking figure and a such an awful practice that goes on from the UK. Unfortunately, there are not enough horse sanctuary’s in the UK to be able to help these animals, and although Pablo’s Horse Sanctuary always does its best to keep going, like every other charity, it is always in need of support to help keep it going.
This week we would like to give a huge thank you to volunteer Clare whos husband, Bob Hendy, celebrated his 50th birthday and had a family party whereby he asked for donations instead of presents. An amazing £220 was donated and a big thank you to all the friends and family of Bob Hendy. A huge thank you to Ken and Ann Johnson, who despite being poorly, still held a car boot sale to raised some much needed funds for Pablos. Also a big thank you to Long Clawson village shop and all their customers for putting £31.60 in the collection tin.
Don’t forget it’s the big Pablo’s Sponsored Dog Walk this Saturday at R&R Country Store in Melton Mowbray, starting at 2.00pm – a great and important fundraising event. Also volunteer John will be holding a stall on Melton Mowbray market and he will be selling some of his most delicious home-made cakes.
Also, remember to keep checking out the items that are up for Auction – new items are being added all the time!
Have a good week.
