Mud glorious mud
Welcome from a weary Wendy (and all my staff and horses!).
I am sure, like me, you are all very fed up with the wet winter. The horses are too. The fields are so wet and muddy, not an environment that is conducive to living out all the time! Our horses normally love being out in all weathers, but this winter has seen the most requests to stay in. Our horses have a way of conveying to us what they would like. (like point black refusing to come out of their stables!!) You can almost hear them saying “Mum, you gotta be kidding me!” As yet another relentless deluge saturates the fields even more. Many a night recently we have had pretty much a full house for bed and breakfast.
Naturally with all the wet weather comes extra stabling, extra food, hay, bedding and staffing, not to mention the horses getting mud fever (like severe chapped hands) which means harder work and triple costs. First of all, can I thank everyone who has still been braving the elements and keeping on coming! Much appreciated, however we still need more provision for the horses.
May I ask for your help please? (not easy for me to ask)
We obviously need to raise more revenue so we would love to share our sanctuary here and increase our clientele, especially on weekdays. Here are some ideas for you to support us:
