Make The Most Of Donkey Madness At Bransby Horses This Half Term

When it is too cold for the beach and everyone is desperate to see a real-life donkey then Bransby Horses is the place to head this half term.

The equine welfare charity is running a ‘Do You Know Your Donkeys’ activity aimed at young children, taking them around the pathways where they will meet their rescued horses, ponies, mules and yes…donkeys.

Donkeys are very much in the spotlight right now thanks to their role in two of the most celebrated films released this year: British-Irish director Martin McDonagh’s The Banshees of Inisherin and Polish director Jerzy Skolimowski’s EO.

Senior press officer Maria Thompson said: “Donkeys, it seems, are having a moment right now. Sadly, we continue to see neglected and unwanted ones on a regular basis and we hope a visit to Bransby Horses will help raise awareness of their needs.

“Donkeys needs are quite different to those of horses and ponies and visitors can find out more on a visit this half term. We are always on the end of the phone to offer advice and guidance to owners and for anyone interested in seeing the ones we care for; we would encourage them to come and visit – you might even get a Hee Haw.”

With a large Visitor Centre, playpark, picnic area and Café serving hot food and drinks, Bransby Horses offers a great day out for all the family.

Entry is free to the equine charity based just a few miles north of Lincoln, which has miles of picturesque, pushchair and wheelchair friendly walkways open to the public – you can even take your dog!

The Bransby Horses ‘Do You Know Your Donkeys?’ activity will be on until the end of the month and for March, families can enjoy a new activity which will see a switch from donkeys to dragons.

These activities are £3.50 and include a special prize at the end.

Charity Shop

Bransby Horses also has a Donated Goods and Tack Shop filled with pre-loved bargains. The charity is always happy to take donations for the shop from which every penny of profit made goes directly back to paying for their equine rescue and welfare work.

Bransby Horses is open Wednesday to Sunday 10am – 4pm and during school holidays it is open seven days a week, Monday to Sunday, 10am – 4pm.
