During the year, more horses were given sanctuary as there was nowhere for them to go, and unfortunately there have been a few fostered horses and ponies returned due to ill health of their foster cares. These horses and ponies are all very old and it is very hard to find foster homes for older equines.
The extra horses means more hay and volunteers to look after them are needed, so if you could help in any way, please get in touch.
We have updated our “Wish List” on Amazon.com. This is an easy way of helping the horses in our care, as delivery will go straight to the Sanctuary.
