Our newest arrival, Fin, he is an ex race horse (Racing Name: Finished Article) who has found himself homeless due to no fault of his own. He is very thin and is going to require a lot of feed to get him back in shape, we've already fallen in love with him!
We have just had the vet out to see Fin, The vet is disgusted with his weight and says he is showing the symptoms of a horse that has been starved, poor lad. So glad he is safe here at Woodlands, but he is going to need a lot of feed! If you have some spare cash maybe you could buy a bale to help Fin!
Thank you for your support!

Well we have at last been able to release a lot of our now very large
and frustrated hedgehogs back to the wild via soft release
sites that the wonderful carers have agreed to provide backup food indefinitely.
This is because there is insufficient natural food in the UK now and a large part
of our hedgehogs 90% decline. We still have a few waiting patiently so if you can
help please give us a call, you will need a rabbit hutch or similar to allow him/her to
acclimatise before release. We have overwintered 50+ which has been an enormous
drain on our limited resources and now more sick and injured hedgehogs are coming
in after hibernation, so we start all over again !
We would like to thank everyone for coming down to our open day today. Despite the bad weather to start, the afternoon was dry and the turnout was excellent! Thank you all for helping us raise an amazing £1280!!
Our next event will be Paws in the Park on 20th May, you can find out more by visiting our events page.
Well done to Edward for guessing the puppies name in the 'guess the puppy' competition, for anyone who is curious, the puppies name was Patch.
