Wow what a cold,wet, snowy and windy few days we have had 🥶

The storm didn’t let us off lightly and we have had some damage but the main thing is that all our residents are fine ❤️

Thank you to our amazing staff and volunteers for making sure all of our horses, ponies and donkeys are warm, fed, sheltered and cosy in these challenging conditions 💕

And we are grateful that our visitors centre and all other areas have been kept running smoothly despite the cold!

It’s not easy working through this but seeing all of our residents with full tummies and plenty of shelter makes it all worth it ❄️

Each animal copes with the weather differently depending on their age, breed/type, health, and personality so we make sure everyone is catered for with rugs,deeper bedding and extra forage.
Some appreciate being inside and others benefit from being out and moving around 🐎
