Caring for our four-legged Petasfield superstars costs far more during the winter than during the summer, and here we are in a second lockdown and unable to bring in any income.
Carrie, Sparky, Amber, Dolly, Cheese and Duke are missing you guys like crazy and we are asking for your help to spread some cheer in the stables by supporting our #12 NeighsOfChristmas appeal.
You, the Petasfield community, are amazing. We are asking those of you kind enough to thank us at Christmas with wine or chocolates to instead consider helping the horses and ponies that we all love and care for.
The #12NeighsOfChristmas gives you a chance to contribute a little towards this in a fun way….
Pick from our list as to what you would like to contribute and in return, to say a huge thanks, you will receive a little something from our horsey team.
2020 brought us many challenges but this second lockdown has been a particularly big hurdle due to the high costs of keeping the team in winter. Their care is far greater with more time spent in, which means we can’t fully furlough our staff like many businesses. They also eat a great deal more hay and feed plus just still need all the other things they always have like the farrier, saddler, yard equipment, fencing rails, insurance, the list goes on…..
We also had the devastating Sparky field accident where he hurt his eye so badly the vet thought it would need to be removed immediately. Luckily he is doing amazing and there is a chance he may regain some eyesight but this is with weekly vet visits and lots of medication. When we can reopen we will be a pony down for a while he continues to recover.
Any support you can provide would help Petasfield no end.
So if you are able to, we would love your support and to hear you singing the #12NeighsOfChristmas in your best imagined Duke voice.
