RAISING THE SANCTUARY'S PROFILE AT THE SURREY GAME AND COUNTRY FAIR
Our thanks go to the team who manned our stand at the Surrey Game and Country Fair at Loseley Park on Sunday, 27th September in the glorious sunshine.
There was a great deal of interest in the work of the Sanctuary and many new contacts were made throughout the day.
Plenty of merchandise was sold including this year’s super Calendar and Christmas Cards. We also held a raffle with a first prize of two tickets to the Premier Enclosure at Fontwell Park Racecourse.
Something new to watch out for in 2016
....we are aiming to put our “Show on the Road” in and around Surrey & Sussex to raise awareness and much needed funds for our charity and will be looking for volunteers to help out at such events....if you would like to be one of our “Local Heroes” please contact Sarah in the office either by Email: firstname.lastname@example.org

UPDATE ON THE HORSES AT STILEMANS
Having been grazing happily in her paddock a few days earlier Ziguara was (we think) stung on her upper lip. The result was a nasty swelling which started to increase in size, as did the sensitivity, making it all but impossible for poor Ziggy to eat properly.
After several days of being flushed through with Pevidine and a course of antibiotics the swelling decreased leaving a very tender sore. You can imagine when at its worst just how painful this must have been!
Poor old Ziggy at the age of 27 years did not deserve this, but still she can at least eat again, remains her feisty old self and simply soldiers on regardless. Hopefully keeping it clear of any infection this wound will in time close over and Ziggy will be back to her beautiful self.
On a positive note, Try having come through recent keyhole surgery on his hock joint is coming along in leaps and bounds, at times literally as he is feeling so good in himself. Currently being lead out in hand twice every morning and then being turned out in a specially built small paddock alongside his best mate Oats in the afternoon, Try is well on the way to a full recovery. Thank goodness as he is a very special horse.
OUR NEXT EVENT IS ON SUNDAY 25TH OCTOBER - LAST CHANCE TO BOOK YOUR TICKETS FOR "DARK HORSE" NOW!
Last month we published Kate Humble’s advice to make your weekend a success, by going to see the film Dark Horse.
This heart-warming story, of the thoroughbred racehorse Dream Alliance and the engaging mix of characters that constitute his connections, records the triumph of the underdog against adversity and the big guns.
Dream Alliance had a challenging racing career, but his connections have made sure he is now well-cared for; so well in fact he has been able to play himself in the film. Come and enjoy the ups and downs of his story, and at the same time support The Racehorse Sanctuary in the wonderful work they do for other ex-racehorses.
Please support our very own charity screening on Sunday, 25 October 2015 at 11:00 am at the Clapham Picture House.
All proceeds will be donated to The Racehorse Sanctuary.
Plan your family day out in London: Book your tickets HERE now.
