Welsh Pony Rescue & Rehoming Charitable Trust is run by volunteers, so all donations go straight to caring for the ponies. We often also appeal for help with tasks which are just impossible for our team of volunteers to carry out due to lack of tools & cost. Time & time again we have been overwhelmed by the generosity of supporters. Here are just some of the Companies that have helped the ponies for free:
Kayla & Lynda from No Nails Hoofcare dedicate two days each month to trimming the rescues and give excellent advice on their hoof care. They help out at the yard at each visit too and have fostered ponies in need of regular attention to their hooves.
Our rescues Dolly & Cain are both still weak, the team have to get them to their feet twice daily if they are down to ensure they don't deteriorate. They are improving each day and we are keeping everything crossed that they will get better.
We put out a call for help to Scaffolding Companies in the last few weeks and 3 local companies came to the rescue. These companies all kitted out 2 stables each with frames so that we can use them with hoists to help the ponies to their feet. This keeps things much more simple for our volunteers.
We would like to say a massive thank you to these Companies. Without them we would not have been able to afford to get these frames done:
Glamorgan Scaffolding Solutions Ltd
Shadow Scaffolding Ltd
Swansea Bay Scaffolding

Our lovely supporters, Sandra & Colin Beale had over 50 bales of haylage to donate to ponies that were in need of desperate help on the Commons last year, the cost of haulage to the Charity would have meant that we couldn't possibly afford to bring the bales to the ponies. We put a call out on BBC Radio Someret for help. Local haulier MCL came to the rescue and sent 2 lorries to Sandra's farm to bring the bales to South Wales. MCL have since brought more bales from Sandra too. They have been an absolute lifesaver to the ponies on the Commons. Many would have died without this feed for the ponies.
Thank you MCL
First deliveries from MCL February 2016 & they have helped us ever since :)
Here's a video of the team manually unloading the haylage delivered by MCL, unfortunately the tractor had a puncture, so it was a busy day for all and the drivers even got stuck into helping us too!! :)
