Sampson becomes a teenager!

Redwings Adoption Star birthday parties

Our mighty Shetland pony Sampson will be celebrating his 13th birthday with a party at Redwings Caldecott on Sunday 3rd July.

This cheeky chap is hoping as many people as possible will come along from 11.30am for an afternoon of fun and cuddles to mark the start of his teenage years! Download the full schedule for Sampson’s party here.

Little Sampson was rescued in 2004 when he was just one year old and was suffering from strangles. His owner could not provide the specialist treatment he needed and so asked Redwings for help.

We were delighted plucky Sampson made a full recovery and he soon became an incredibly popular member of our Adoption Club.

Sampson will kick-off his party with a special birthday groom before taking centre stage in the pony parade to meet his supporters and receiving lots of cuddles, of course! They’ll also be party games to play, a quiz trail and the chance to watch the birthday boy scoff a scrummy cake.

Following the festivities, you can enjoy your own slice of cake alongside a warm cuppa in our Nosebag Café, before picking up a souvenir from your day in our gift shop with all proceeds going towards the care of our rescued residents.
