You're invited to Rumpel's 11th birthday party!

Handsome cob Rumpel is celebrating turning 11 years old with a birthday bash at Redwings Oxhill on Sunday 8th July - and you're invited!

Rumpel arrived at the Sanctuary ten years ago this January, when he was rescued with over 100 other horses, ponies and donkeys from the horrific conditions of Spindle Farm in Amersham, Buckinghamshire. He was a terrified six-month-old foal, and was surviving with little food, water or basic care. Rumpel was terrified of human contact and flinched at the slightest touch, but with specialist rehabilitation he slowly recovered from his ordeal to become the kind and friendly chap he is today.

Rumpel's party will kick off at 11:30am when the birthday boy will be treated to a relaxing groom, before meeting lots of supporters during his parade and then tucking into his very own birthday cake. You’ll have the chance to join in with party games, a quiz trail and you’ll even have the chance to meet out 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?

And after all that excitement, be sure to visit our cafe where you can put your feet up with a refreshing drink and a tasty snack, plus our on-site gift shop has a wide range of souvenirs on offer so you can take home a keepsake from your day. Profits from all purchases go towards the care of our 1,500 horses, ponies, donkeys and mules at Redwings nationwide.

We hope you can make it!
