Wensley’s Birthday Party!
Adorable miniature Shetland and Adoption Star Wensley will be celebrating his 12th birthday on Sunday 3rd May and he would love you to come and join in the fun!
Like most young chaps, Wensley often gets a little grubby as he plays with his friends, but Oxhill staff will be giving him a sprucing up at 11am on the morning of his party and hoping that he can manage to stay clean until his birthday parade which takes place at 1pm! Following the parade, Wensley will be centre of attention when he receives his birthday cards and very own pony-tastic cake!
Visitors can also meet Redwings mascot Red, enjoy our special birthday quiz trail, join in with a game of pass the parcel and have a guided tour to meet some of our other wonderful rescued residents and Adoption Stars who live with Wensley at Redwings Oxhill. Wensley still lives with some of his ‘cheesy’ friends who were part of a large group of ponies rescued from Lincolnshire in 2004 and all named after types of cheese! He has been putting a smile on our faces ever since!
Whether you’re a long standing Redwings supporter or thinking of visiting Redwings Oxhill for the first time, Wensley’s party is the perfect opportunity for a free, fun filled family day out! The beautiful site is fully accessible, dogs on a lead are welcome and visitors can enjoy browsing our tempting range of gifts, relaxing with hot or cold drinks and snacks in our café and making the most of our paddock walks and information boards, not to mention cuddling up to some irresistible rescued horses, ponies and donkeys! Do come and party with us!
Redwings Oxhill is open every day from 10am – 4pm. For more information about and timings of Wensley's birthday party, pop into the centre or call our visitor helpline 0870 040 0033.
