Winter feed and bedding appeal

We are struggling at the sanctuary with the freezing wind and snow. The animals are needing more feed and bedding in order to keep warm. We are asking if you would like to help towards these costs by making a small donation we would be very grateful. We are struggling with frozen pipes and taps to add to the difficulty of dealing with the winter conditions. If you would like to help us there is a donate button on this website or you can send a cheque made out to Greenland Grove Animal Sanctuary and post to Greenland Grove Animal Sanctuary, Greenland Grove, St Osyth, Essex, CO16 8JE thank you very much

Friends at Christmas time

Blind Sonny gets his wish


Sonny hated the other horses being taken out on a hack without him. He manages his blindness really well but misses being one of the ridden horses.
On Saturday Carol decided to put her faith in the relationship she has with him and with support on the ground in case of any problems Carol rode him. He was amazing and once she was on him he didn’t seem to be blind at all.
A wonderful example of trust between a horse and rider. Doesn’t he look happy?

Meet Tao, Dante and Raj 3 little unwanted foals we have rescued


These three little guys belonged to travelers and were “disappointments!” . It is common for these colt foals to end up abandoned in fields or left on the roadside.
Luckily these 3 are now safe and have a promising future ahead
