welcome to Bransby Bransby Home of Rest For Horses is an equine welfare charity which was founded in 1968. Since then Bransby have helped over 1000 animals. Our objective is to prevent and relieve cruelty to horses, ponies and donkeys, to protect them from unnecessary suffering and for that purpose to promote knowledge of their care and treatment among the public. We are completely funded by the generosity of public donations.Between our two sites in Lincolnshire and Herefordshire we have over 400 animals currently in our care, which keeps us constantly busy. The Bransby site near Lincoln is open to the public 365 days a year; it is a great day out for all the family with plenty to see and do. Unfortunately our Herefordshire site is not currently open to the public. 2012 continues where the last year ended. We have already provided a safe haven for 50 animals and the welfare office continues to take a vast amount of calls on a daily basis. All of these additional animals are putting a strain on welfare resources. We have had to increase staff numbers to ensure that all of theanimals continue to benefit from the high standard of care that they deserve.In addition to this, we have incurred significant costs to bring more fields backinto grazing use, with fencing continuing to be incredibly expensive.The work doesn’t end there. We are now looking at the winter facilities that willbe required to house the additional animals that we have in our care. Providingall weather paddocks will enable some of the fields to rest through the hardwinter months, providing excellent grazing through the spring and summer.
