Pastures being the appropriate word, the boys could hardly believe their luck when they were turned out into their new field full of grass!

On the journey to their new home with John and Carolyn, Leo was very stressy and didn’t travel well causing Corrie to become somewhat wound up too. We safely managed their ‘enthusiasm’ to leave the trailer (!), and after a cursory glance at their surroundings and a quick explore of their field and barn, they both settled to eat.

It’s wonderful to see them in such fantastic surroundings, but it was a wrench to leave them there. It’s impossible to not become attached to horses even though I know their time with me will end when they find their forever homes. I’m sure I’ll miss them far more than they’ll miss me though!

Sometimes we are asked to take on and rehome equines, that often for health reasons or their age, are too vunerable to be advertised for sale by the owners. Belle is one of those ponies who had some physical difficulties, probably as the result of being used as a broodmare in the past, and could therefore only be used as a companion in the future.

We are fortunate to have some excellent people approach us to be future adopters, people that are prepared to take on equines that most others would turn their backs on. We are now extremly pleased to say that Belle has settled in well as companion to new adopter Vicki’s horse Whiz and we wish them all the very best for a happy future together.

The beautiful Cairanne has been on our website looking for an adopter for a few months now. Although she is 22 yrs old, she is in good health and could be lightly ridden by a competent person. Being good with other horses means she would also make a very good companion for a lonely horse or as a nanny to youngsters as she has been a broodmare herself in the past.

She is papered, microchipped and vaccinated and ready to be rehomed now.

Please contact us if you are interested in adopting Cairanne.

After delivering Brandy (Gucci) yesterday I called in to visit Maddy, Ellie and Poppy –  the 3 donkeys that were adopted by Tracie and Dave back in April. These 3 donkeys are just the funniest threesome and follow each other around everywhere. They are an absolute credit to Tracie & Dave and look fantastic with their very shiny coats!

Poppy, Maddie and Ellie...treble trouble!

Yesterday we moved Gucci the yearling donkey to her new adoptive family near Bellac, where she is to be companion to another lonely donkey, Phebus. We were thrilled that she found a home so quickly after coming into our care as she had been yearning for a donkey friend for some time with her previous owner. Not only did she get a new home yesterday,  Gucci also got a new name and is now called Brandy (after the Cognac region where she lived).

Phebus heard her braying from the trailer and could hardly wait to see what was going to come off…

"Could it be ........a donkey for me??"

Please take a few minutes to look at our equines that are still waiting for their forever homes to come along.You can see their their photos on the right hand side of this page or go to our rehoming page for more info on each of them.

If you do not have the facilities or experience to take on an equine yourself, maybe you would consider donating something towards their costs whilst in our care? Mimi has now been with us 8 months awaiting for an adopter to come forward. Leon is still receiving treatment on his leg injury that he came to us with and so will not be able to be rehomed for some time. Our aim is always to rehome equines into permanent homes as soon as we can, but in cases like the above it sometimes isn’t possible. With the onset of winter just around the corner, and potentially more equines than ever needing our help this winter, please help us so that we can continue to help them.
