Hello. We've had an afternoon out with the Gee Gee's today. It doesn't seem like one whole year since I last visited Bransby Home for Horses, how time flies. The charity does such good work rescuing horses and ponies, and luckily it's not far for me to travel for a visit. Today I took a friend who loves horses. It was a bit blustery but thankfully we didn't have any rain.
Bransby is near Lincoln, it is one of the UK's largest equine welfare charities, founded in 1968. The centre is open every day and dogs are welcome. Admission and parking are free. During 2012 and 2013 they took in more than 180 horses, most of which were rescued from situations of cruelty and neglect. A second site has opened in Herefordshire but this is not open to the public. Between the two sites there are currently over 450 animals in care. Here are a few of them.
It's tea time in this paddock.
That's it, all full up, let's have a look over here. The horses came to check us out.
We moved on to have a look inside a big shed. These horses were being led outside for a run about in a field.
A man came with his tools and was giving them a pedicure.
Back outside again, we went across the road and found some little ponies. They were so cute.
Think I'll stop here, I like it. Can we come again.
