Rodger

Rodger arrived with us during the lockdown. We were told he was five but we aged him at no more than 2. When the dentist took a look he shocked us all by announcing that he has an immature mouth, but marks his age at around 15 years old. It's believed his slow development was a result of malnutrition.

He is a lovely donkey, coming along to being handled well. His feet were in a very bad state when he arrived and he had a lot of treatment for this and thankfully he hasn't sustained any bad lasting damage, although his grass intake and feet will have to be closely monitored.

He had secured a home and was hoping for a donkey friend to join him there, unfortunately that home fell through. He hasn't been out with anyone since his gelding but had been briefly turned out with resident's Ned and Denzel for a short while and he seemed to really enjoy the company. For that reason, we will only be considering homes where he will be assured of company at all times. Donkeys are very sociable and he frets without anyone near.

All homes will be required to attend the sanctuary and work with Rodger before rehoming.

Olive

Olive is a lovely young pony who has been spending increasing time with Tilly and could potentially be rehomed as a pair. She leads well and does lift her feet although will lift her feet to kick out at times so will need further handling.
She is a real character who enjoys playing and being groomed. She is very protective of food and will show aggression if she feels like her dinner is threatened.

Mare

Emily & Elijah

Both donkeys will need a home together with someone experienced with horses, donkeys, or both. The home must be patient and willing to continue their training after leaving the sanctuary.

Limited grazing will be needed - ideally a track system if possible to encourage movement, helping with the loss of the additional weight that they carry.

Emily (lighter mare) has a more subdued temperament, only concerned whenever she cannot reach Elijah, unhappy when she can see but not reach him. She is a polite donkey who would be content with or without human attention.

Elijah (darker gelding) is a very curious Donkey. He will meddle with anything new in his environment. Very mentally active and quick to learn forms of enrichment would be very beneficial.

Both leading well-using body language and vocal cues - ‘walk-on’ and ‘Woah’. Very responsive and getting more so with each session.

Whoever was to rehome them would be expected to continue their training and handling.

Jodie and Sanza

Jodie was paired up with Sanza and like everything else Jodie does, she took it all in her stride. She is not sound for riding but could lead a small child around. Jodie has a dust allergy and has a sensitive stomach with food changes. Ideally, she needs to live out with an open shelter.

Jodie adores a little fuss and attention and is always on the lookout for her next 'buddy'.

Sanza doesn't mix well with other horses but gets along with Jodie thanks to the older mares' mellow temperament. She does love attention and fuss though and enjoys grooming. Like Jodie, she isn't sound but could be used for setting a small child on her back.

Both mares must be rehomed together and must go to a five star home.

They would be perfect as a pair of 'field ornaments' for the grandchildren to fuss around. :)

Tilly

Tilly enjoys spending time with Olive so the pair would be happy to be rehomed as a pair! Tilly arrived with us when her owner surrendered her, unable to meet her needs any longer and hoping to give her the best chance in life. She is approximately 10-12 years old and is quite a trouble maker. She loves to explore, to escape, and to play.

She will follow you everywhere given the chance; unless you've left a gate open of course. Open gates are like neon signs for free carrots to our Tilly - she's a moth to the flame. If she's loose on the yard you have to be very careful not to leave any gates ajar or she will be right in.

She is a little picky with her friends but time usually is all she needs. Right now she is besotted with our older shetland NikNak and is often found wherever the elder happens to be.

She has fear of being enclosed, we aren't sure of the trigger, but if she is found to be enclosed in a stable she will do whatever she can to escape the confinement to the point of injury. If there is a fence she can limbo she will, if there is a gate ajar she will aid its opening.

She is such a trouble maker - but we love her to bits! She has a habit of stopping in a spot when you are trying to move a wheelbarrow, the quad or jeep and she will not move for anything. She just stands and looks at you until you physically move her out of the way.

Tilly has had laminitis in the past so we are very careful about her feeding; and her turnout on the grass.

We would love to find her a home where she can have some people of her own to spoil her.

Reserve Kittens

These kittens will be ready to go at 8 weeks of age (in 2 - 3 weeks time), but can be reserved now.
They are being handled daily so should be very friendly, and they will be vet checked and flea wormed.
There are 9 tabby & white, and 3 black & white (not all of the kittens are shown). Various sexes.

Seymour

Seymour arrived up at the sanctuary as a stray who'd been in the wars. He was unsure of new people, had no idea what a litter tray was, absolutely stank and very bad ears.

He's now ready to find a home, after being castrated, having his wounds healed, his ears fixed up, and he's even learnt how to use a litter tray. He's come around to people to the point he demands his nightly groom. He's still wary of new people and can be a little standoffish if he feels threatened.

He's a lovely cat though and we think he would make a great addition to any home where he can continue to be a little spoilt and pampered.

We are looking for a home without young children or other animals as Seymour has shown a penchant for fighting in the past.

Marnie and Duke

These two arrived at the sanctuary after both being abandoned together. They are very fond of each other and so we would like them to go together if possible. Tortie likes a stroke but still a little timid at times. Ginger on the other hand is very shy and he often uses Tortie as his sheild. He is getting used to people but needs some time - thankfully he is young and has a long life ahead to fall in love with his new family. Could that family be yours? Not suitable for homes with dogs or young children.

Looking for a Broad of my Own!

There a few young roosters who would benefit from a brood of their own. Could you offer them a forever home?
