Christmas Without Cruelty Festival

We had an amazing day at the Christmas Without Cruelty Festival yesterday - the biggest crowds ever, and the hall was very busy through-out the whole day!  We completely sold out of Margaret's jams and marmalades which are incredibly popular!  I'm very grateful for Frances' help on the stall!  I'm also very grateful to Catherine and Victoria for looking after the ponies and to Roy for doing their dinners in the evening.  We raised an amazing £291.50 on the stall - thank you so much everyone for your support, and to Mark for all his work organising the event!

Babe, Maisie and Jaffa

Jaffa and Babe!
 We really enjoyed our visit to see Babe and her friends today.  It's a year tomorrow that Babe went to stay with Frances, Maisie and Jaffa and she's doing brilliantly.  Roy is so chuffed to see her charging about!  The girl that in February 2016 was so poorly she was nearly put to sleep because of her feet (laminitis and pedal bone rotation)...she came to us for rehab...she was rehomed with Frances...and now she's on 24 hour turnout and full of the joys of life :0)  We love happy pony stories :0)


Maisie had a swollen leg this morning so had some red light therapy.
The heat went away in 20 minutes and Maisie who is usually suspicious of men nuzzled
her head into Roy's arm which was very sweet.  She decided to join in the charging
 about this afternoon!

Jaffa and Babe synchronized!

November's Here


This month's calendar photo features beautiful Babe the pony with visitors Mia and Violet - a special moment captured on camera.  Ponies can bring a real sense of joy to children and sometimes, as captured in the photo, you can see that special connection and bond coming through...something that can be underestimated and undervalued.  Babe is a big pony...and the children in no way feel scared by her size.  Babe certainly chose to bond with the children of her own free will - everyone is so respectful of each other and they share the special heart to heart moment together.
