Within the space of two days in 2014 we welcomed two sets of very rare breed equines into the Sanctuary, including two foals. We are thrilled to announce that two extremely rare Suffolk Punches have arrived at one of our centres in Norfolk, while Redwings Oxhill in Warwickshire has just greeted four French Poitou donkeys, including two foals. Wilf and Stanley Wilf and Stanley, two Suffolk Punch geldings, were rescued by our Field Officer Julie Harding and World Horse Welfare’s Jacko Jackson from a site in Norfolk when it was clear their owner was not giving them the care they needed. They were kept in a barn for over a year with no opportunity for exercise, Wilf was suffering from severe sweet itch that had caused the majority of his mane to fall out, while both had very poor feet that had not been trimmed in some time. The two horses, both 16hh and seven years old, have been together since birth and are firm friends. Their owner agreed to sign them over to us so they could receive all the treatment they needed.
Millie, Arya, Adel and Merlin Then the following week, our Oxhill visitor centre in Warwickshire welcomed a family of gorgeous new arrivals in the very hairy shape of Millie and Adel – two Poitou donkeys – and their babies Arya and Merlin, who came to Redwings from a long standing Redwings welfare volunteer when he was sadly no longer able to care for them. Arya (born in July) and Merlin (born in May) are both part bred Poitou, as is Adel, but Millie is a full registered Poitou donkey standing at 14.2hh with the traditional shaggy coat, known as a cadanette. Meanwhile her stunning daughter Arya is a real headturner. Pretty Adel was originally rescued from the meat trade in Italy and she gave birth to little Merlin in May. She is a part bred Poitou but traces of her traditional coat can still be seen in Winter.
