Winter is upon us again and this year brings even greater challenges to the sanctuary than in previous years. The fodder/bedding crisis will have a huge effect on us this year with lots of hungry mouths to feed and provide warm bedding for. Please help us reach our goal and enable us to provide the much needed care that our residents need and deserve ..
Due to an exceptionally long and hard winter, followed by a very wet spring, fodder reserves were depleted across the country.
While the heatwave experienced in early summer was welcomed by many people it was yet another blow to the farming community as grass growth was severely restricted. The combination of all these factors has resulted in a severe shortage of hay, straw and haylage.
Available supply is set to be very expensive and will place a huge strain on our financial resources.
