In the past week we have waved off Bonnie,Polly and Bella to their new homes 👋
Arranging loans takes a lot of hard work behind the scenes.
From sorting out their bespoke loan and care plans and making sure they are up to date with all of their vet work, to travelling them and supporting their loan homes during the settling in period.
Please be good girls and good luck with your new families ❤

It’s international DONKEY week this week - so we thought we would share some of our fab donkey pics - donkeys having their teeth done, a physio session or a bath, as well as donkeys just being donkeys!
If like us, you love these long eared characters you can help us in our work by joining Donkey Club - for a monthly donation of £12 you can help us with our rescue work - or you can adopt any of our six donkeys online at www.hopepastures.org
All your generous donations help us to carry on rescuing and rehabilitating more animals ❤️🐴💕

We are so very grateful this week to have been given an arena surface and the opportunity for an amazing tipper truck for a few days to collect it in. This has enabled us to complete our quarantine area with a sand turnout for the price of the manpower to bring it and shovel!
We are very grateful - thank you to LC Vehicle Sales for their help and to Upcroft Alpacas - Experiences Accomodation Products. for the kind donation of arena surface! We are very happy our quarantine area is now complete ❤️💕😍🐴
