All the horses and ponies are well this week. We’d like to give another huge thank you to those who have so generously given donations over the Christmas period, either by donating hay, feed, money or carrots. It is so heart-warming to know of all the kindness that is out there, and that we are in the thoughts of so many kind people over the Christmas period, please know that every donation is really appreciated. Also a special thank you to all the volunteers for giving their time over Christmas – including Christmas day for their help with looking after the horses and ponies.
On 1st January all the horses and ponies will be moved to their Winter quarters on the yard. This enables the fields to have a rest for 3 months, so that they’ll be ready for the Spring time. This is particularly important, especially with all the wet weather we have been having all over the country, as some of our fields have suffered with flooding.
Unfortunately, volunteer Wendy was unable to take the New and Nearly New Equine staff to the Blaby Recreational Riding Associations Christmas show at Blaby Mill Equestrian on Sunday 23rd December, due to the show being cancelled because of bad weather. However, we are pleased to announce that an amazing £3753.00 has been raised this year. Wendy would like to say a personal thank-you to everyone who has supported the Pablo’s New and Nearly New Equine stall this year. We would love to see you all again in 2013, and if anyone has a new venue for the stall or would like a yard visit please contact Wendy on 07831 453504 (please note no message service) or email: firstname.lastname@example.org or if you would like to make stock donations, please get in touch.
We still need 5.9, 6.6, 6.9, 7ft turnout rugs for all the big horses that we have. So if anyone can help please contact Carole or Wendy.
From everyone from Pablo’s Horse Sanctuary would like to wish you a happy New Year and all the best for 2013.
Have a good week.
