Yesterday I took a friend to visit the Warwickshire branch of Redwings, a charity which does fantastic work in rescuing and rehoming horses that have been abandoned, neglected or abused. It was wonderful to see so many horses contentedly grazing...
and chomping... and while some clearly think the grass is greener on the other side of the fence, it's obvious that Redwings is a great place to be.
You could just cry when you think of how much ill treatment horses have suffered at the hands of humans, but it's really heartening to see that even horses who have suffered can go on to enjoy happier lives with the right care and attention.
I think we'll visit again, and hopefully not get quite as lost as we did on the way home!
