First Rescue Of 2020

Meet Hope Pastures first arrival for 2020, Ellie Mae.

Ellie is a beautiful and gentle older horse whose owner sadly passed away. She was facing an uncertain future and Hope Pastures were asked to help as a last chance option.

After meeting and assessing Ellie Hope Pastures decided that she was still a happy and bright horse who'd benefit from being in a foster home who's ready and waiting for another oldie to join the family.

After being microchipped, passported, vaccinated, and tested for infectious disease, Ellie Mae is also due to have her teeth attended to and be wormed before finishing her quarantine period and moving on to keep another rescue horse company. As Ellie has lived on her own for at least 20 years (!) they're sure that she will appreciate the company.

Everyone at Hope Pastures has already fallen in love with her gentle nature and sweet personality, and are looking forward to seeing her content and settled in her new home. She's been so well behaved throughout her move and, despite being a little disorientated (having not moved home for many years), she's very easy going and accepting of the help she is being given.

She really is a beautiful horse inside and out. We hope that Ellie Mae has a long and happy life in her new home.

More clipping to do?

Many of us will be doing one more clip this winter. We recently watched a clipping demo at BETA International and the clippers being used are the Liveryman Harmony Plus. For a small clipper, they were brilliant at cutting through this woolly pony's coat! They are quiet, easy to handle and can be used cordless or via the mains.
