Hi Everyone

FacebookHope you all had a good August and Bank Holiday Monday. All the horses and ponies are well and have been enjoying themselves in their Summer paddocks over the last month. With Autumn on it’s way now, preparations will start soon on preparing for the coming Winter months.

However, it’s not long now before our 4th Open Day, which will be held on Sunday 27th September at the main yard in Long Clawson. Everyone and their families are welcome, it’s only £2 entry with children under 16  free, and a great family day out.  Doors open at 12 noon until 4.00pm

There will be demonstrations, stalls and games, and of course the delicious home-made cakes and refreshments. Again, back by popular demand, we have our volunteer Russ who will be entertaining us by singing popular songs, whilst playing his guitar.  Our fantastic raffle  will be drawn on the day, and you could win one of the following main prizes:

  • 18 holes of Golf for 4 people at the prestigious championship golf course at Stapleford Park Country Club near Melton Mowbray
  • Tickets to Leicester Racecourse
  • A pet portrait by Julie Bramley

Also you can win bottles of Port, Whiskey and wine, packs of bird seeds, 3 months free gym membership, with more prizes being added all the time.

Raffle tickets are only £1 each. If you would like to buy a book please contact Carole or volunteer Julie at julia_webster@hotmail.co.uk Tickets will be available to purchase on the day. All proceeds will be helping the horses and ponies at Pablos.

Our newsletter is now out and for those who generously support the sanctuary by a monthly donation or sponsoring one of our horses or ponies, they will be receiving this either by email or by post.

We would like to give a huge thank to you to following, for their support to the sanctuary: Ken and Ann, Jane and Joan, Stuart and Joyce, Peter from Jersey, Landmark, Pascoella, Zen Yog Kido Karate Club, Persiommon Homes, Mrs Exeton and family, and all the children who made sweet treats for the Christmas switch on lights at Walton on the Wolds.  We would like to give a special thank to you to the Crescent Vets in Melton Mowbray for their care, as just recently we have had to have a lot of call outs for the old ponies in our care, and they have came straight out and  provide top class care for them.

We hope to be able to see you on Saturday 27th September at our Open Day!
