He was a legend, so popular and very much adored by all our staff, volunteers, trustees, his sponsors and our supporters. He even became ‘famous’ as […]

Muffin’s Monthly Musings For June

HOT ……. even for half a donkey. The whole donkeys, however, are in their element. I’m not so sure about my native pony friends, especially the Shetlands and the Welsh Mountain ponies – I’m not convinced their hundreds of years of evolution to cope with snow and ice have meant they’re adapted to the current […]

Muffin’s Monthly Musings for May

The weather has well and truly changed. Gone is the cold, damp stuff and we’ve had fabulous sun for days on end. I can’t say I’m complaining – it’s been a long, long winter. The only hiccup is that the green stuff started to grow for about a week…… now it’s so dry in my […]

Muffin’s Monthly Musings for December

DON’T PANIC I am still here!!!!! I know you missed me last month, but the tapping human was sooo cold the wriggly things on the ends of her front hooves wouldn’t work properly, even though she tried some fluffy hoof boots on them. Or at least that’s what she said…..I also heard that all the […]
