Rumpel celebrates his 10th birthday!

Redwings Adoption Star Rumpel celebrates his 10th birthday

Handsome Adoption Star Rumpel is celebrating his 10th birthday with a party at Redwings Oxhill on Sunday 9th July – and everyone is invited!

Rumpel has come a long way since his arrival at the Sanctuary in 2008 as a terrified six-month-old foal. Looking at him now it’s hard to believe this lovely chap was one of almost 100 horses and donkeys who were rescued from the horrific conditions of Spindle Farm in Buckinghamshire.

Sadly, some had already passed away before we arrived while others were so weak they were barely able to stand. Little Rumpel was so scared of human contact he flinched at being stroked. But after extensive rehabilitation, Rumpel recovered from his ordeal, and his friendly and confident character soon made him stand out as the perfect Adoption Star.

Rumpel’s birthday party will begin at 11.30am when he’ll be spoiled with a pampering groom before parading in front of his fans and enjoying plenty of cuddles!

There’ll also be a delicious birthday cake for him to tuck into, while you can play party games, enjoy a quiz trail and meet our cheeky mascot Red!

After giving the birthday boy lots of fuss, why not take a stroll and meet some of the other adorable 90 rescued residents that call Redwings Oxhill home?

There’s also our Nosebag Café where you can put your feet up with a refreshing drink and a tasty snack, plus there’s an on-site gift shop offering a wide range of souvenirs with all proceeds going towards the 1,500 horses, ponies, donkeys and mules in Redwings' care nationwide.

We look forward to seeing you!
