Adoption Star birthday parties will take place online!

Adoption Star birthday party season would normally be just around the corner, but sadly this year we’re once again unable to host the parties at our visitor centres. Instead we’re bringing the celebrations online so that you can still get involved!

During the parties, the Stars would normally parade in front of their fans and pose for photos after receiving a pampering and groom from their carers. That’s all before tucking into their very own cake! Unfortunately coronavirus restrictions mean that the parties will not be able to take place this year.

But don't fret! This year, for each Adoption Star’s birthday, their carers will still be spoiling them with a birthday groom and a delicious cake, but you will have the chance to design it! All you have to do is send your design, which could include their favourite carrot and ginger biscuit treats, to communications@redwings.co.uk. The Adoption Star's carers will pick their favourite design to create before presenting it to them and reading them their lovely birthday cards from their fans far and wide!

Another way to get involved is by treating your Adoption Star to a gift from their special birthday wishlist, which has been lovingly put together by their carers. They include tasty treats, headcollars, haynets and playballs for them to enjoy in their paddock!

In June, Gibson will be turning 7 years old, retired Adoption Star Dolly will be turning 26 years old, donkey duo Wiggins and Wacko will be turning 17, spotty star Cookie will be 24 and mini Shetland Sampson will be turning 18 years old!
