By shopping with Redwings, you're helping us care for our 1,500 horses, ponies, donkeys and mules!
Carrots make fantastic healthy treats for our residents, so we're inviting Redwings supporters to give the gift of carrots to mark International Carrot Day on 4th April.
Throughout April, you can drop off bags of carrots at any of our visitor centres - just look our for the ‘Carrot Drop Stop’ - or simply donate £1 to fund a nutritious nibble for our rescued horses or donkeys (scroll to the bottom of this page to use the donation form below).
And while up to 40% of fruit and vegetables are currently thrown away because they’re deemed not suitable for sale, no knobbly carrot is turned away by a Redwings horse or donkey!
Carrots are given by our staff to praise good behaviour or simply as a healthy snack, but care is always taken to give treats in moderation. Despite their size, carrots should only be given to horses and donkeys as occasional treats as too many could see them put on unnecessary weight.
Visitors to our centres over the celebratory weekend of 1st to 4th April will be able to find out more by taking on a “Carrot Chase” quiz trail around the site and anyone with a sweet tooth can also treat themselves to a scrummy carrot cupcake in our cafés with all proceeds going towards funding our vital rescue and welfare work.
And that's not all, why not bake your own carrot cake for either your horsey or human friends?! We've created special recipes for both (just don't get them confused):

Redwings’ International Carrot Day celebrations will take place on Friday 1st April to Monday 4th April, 10am to 4pm, at all visitor centres. Entry is free of charge!
