Essential Straw Supplies Desperately Needed 

With so many animals living at the Sanctuary, we are used to dealing with prevailing wet wintry conditions, but the aftermath of the wettest December since records began, has left our staff struggling to deal with the worst conditions we have experienced in 20 years of Hillside and most of the winter is still ahead of us.
             Some of our fields are flooded...

We were already prepared for the predicted ‘worst winter for 50 years’ as in addition to providing the usual massive straw beds for the animals, we had ordered hundreds of extra large bales which we used to build straw walls giving the animals added protection from the winter weather.

However, after the extreme rainfall of the last few weeks, our usual straw stocks have been exhausted and we are now using several tonnes of extra straw EVERY DAY to keep the animals comfortable.  Straw is vital to combat the horrendous conditions we are currently facing and it is critical that we are able to maintain our supply.
PLEASE PLEASE consider a small donation to help buy straw for our animals during this difficult time.

(One large bale of straw costs £10)


Off the straw beds, staff struggle to get through

 On their straw beds (above and below), the horses, blissfully unaware of our struggles, are wintering well

This winter, to save funds and the staff's time, we have invested in a Straw Spreader which is working hard topping up the horses' beds daily to keep them comfortable. The spreader quickly and efficiently distributes one large bale of straw at a time which cost around £10 each.

Hillside is home to 1300 Rescued Horses, Ponies and Donkeys, 300 Rescued Cows, 600 Sheep and Goats, 200 Pigs and lots of other rescued animals including deer...
