Coping with the Snow

Posted by Jon in News on Sunday 05/02/2012 13:56 +01:00.

We are normally very busy at the sanctuary, but when the weather turns cold, its non stop and there’s little time to rest.

As well as all of the normal tasks like feeding, checking and cleaning  all of the animals, its a non stop battle to keep the animals with fresh unfrozen water. All of the rabbits water bottles and animals drinkers have to be defrosted twice a day.

When the ground is frozen, there’s nothing for the horses, ponies, sheep and Boris the bull to eat, so we consume huge amounts of very expensive hay.

On a week day when we are working, its a very early and very cold start to get all of the animals sorted in time to travel off to work, when we return, it starts all over again.
