By shopping with Redwings, you're helping us care for our 1,500 horses, ponies, donkeys and mules!
Our horses, like Audrey, are relying on as much as ever as we face ongoing challenges due to the pandemic.
It’s been another busy week for our equine care teams across the country as they continue to look after our 1,500 rescued residents during the coronavirus outbreak.
This is a testing time for Redwings as we face the challenge of protecting our essential veterinary staff and equine carers while ensuring our four-legged friends still receive the vital care they need.
Having outlined the measures we’d taken to safeguard our equine carers last week, this week we thought we’d explain how we’re looking out for our veterinary team too. Our plans are ever evolving as new Government guidance is announced, but our actions so far have included:
Elsewhere, while sadly our visitor centres are now closed to the public, the teams who care for the horses there are still ensuring they remain well looked after… and receive all the cuddles and fuss they would have lapped-up from all their fans!
The ponies at Redwings Oxhill in Warwickshire have even been reminding us about the importance of social distancing, while Adoption Star Baby Face Nelson at Redwings Aylsham in Norfolk has been making sure everyone washes their hands properly!
Meanwhile, our donkeys and mules at Redwings Caldecott in Norfolk have been lifting the spirits of their carers. You can’t help but smile at those faces (see images at the top of the page and below)!
And finally, alongside plenty of well wishes from our amazing supporters, our care teams and horses have received some fantastic support from local businesses too!
Two Cherry Lane garden centres in Norfolk donated their bags of horse feed prior to temporarily closing their doors, while Waitrose in Norwich supplied some bags of carrots. As a result of earlier panic-buying, the supermarket had ordered a large delivery of carrots but when it became clear they wouldn’t be able to sell them all, they kindly thought of us.
Carrots are lovely treats for our horses, so the care team at our Norfolk headquarters has been grating them to put into feeds and to give out with medication for the patients in our Horse Hospital.
