Remus Memorial Horse Sanctuary

Urgent Hay Appeal Summer 2022

The soaring temperature this summer has meant the grass in the paddocks is non-existent. We've had to increase our hay stocks by 75% to feed the animals, putting a huge strain on our finances.

Can you help us again?

We thought the last two years were tricky enough with Covid and the lack of fundraising! Little did we know that 2022 would bring us the hottest UK temperatures on record, and over such a sustained period!

The soaring temperatures have meant the grass in the paddocks cant grow - in fact it's just turned to dust. So even those animals that aren't laminitic and can eat grass, have none to nibble!

We've had to increase our hay stocks by 75% over the past month! This, combined with increasing fuel and transport costs mean that we are also having to buy hay, straw and woodchip bedding at higher prices than before.

We know the rain will come at some point, but it will be too late to replenish our stocks this year which means well also be heading into the winter and through into next spring with a shortage.

We fully understand these are challenging times for many, so we know our timing is not good. You've helped us in the past and we really hope you can again. However little, every penny really does make a difference.
