Adorable donkey Dotty is our Adoption Star of the Month!
By shopping with Redwings, you're helping us care for our 1,500 horses, ponies, donkeys and mules!
Milky Way has come a long way since he was rescued from the Welsh commons as a foal in 2004. He’s also travelled a very long way since he was rehomed by Jane Girling in 2011, as he’s something of a star at endurance (long-distance riding)!
Milky Way (also known affectionately as Lumpy) achieved an amazing second place with his rider Kayleigh in the Endurance GB Junior Championships at the close of the 2015 season and was named the ‘Best Unregistered Horse’ of the year by the association!
This is an incredible result for a 13hh pony but as Jane says, he’s a natural at endurance. “We did quite a few different things with Lumpy when we took him on he was great. But after a couple of years my granddaughter decided to have a go at an endurance ride and almost straight away we knew she and Lumpy had found their favourite activity!”
Although Kayleigh has sadly outgrown Milky Way now, he is such a star that he already has a new local rider keen to help ride and care for him. “He will stay with us no matter what though,” says Jane. “He’s such a character and a real part of our family.”
