Meet the Ponies – Adoption Afternoon @ Hope Pastures
Mar 24 @ 3:30 pm – 5:30 pm
Meet the Ponies - Adoption Afternoon @ Hope Pastures | England | United Kingdom

If you’d like to get ‘close up’ and find out more about your Adoption Stars, then this is the chance! Cloud, Sago, Hope, Muffin, Lily, Freddie, Coco, Henry and Banjo are all looking forward to meeting you (and their other friends will be there to say hello, too.)

If you already adopt someone, come along and meet them in person (or rather in pony or in donkey!) They’re all different, with their own characters, and you’ll get to know them better on the day.

If you don’t already adopt, this is a chance to find out more. Our ponies and donkeys come to us for many different reasons, usually neglected or abandonned, and anyone who adopts one of them guarantees their future with us, by helping to cover the the day to day costs of looking after them.

An Adoption makes a brilliant Easter, birthday, Christmas or anniversary present, or even a special present for yourself.

Refreshments available.
