At Hillside we now have over 2000 rescued horses, ponies and donkeys and six hundred cows now in our care. The majority of these horses and ponies have come to us in the last few years during the recent horse crisis, and we now have to look further afield to ensure we have enough grazing for them all during the summer months.
Although we always rest several acres for summer grazing, these are not now sufficient to sustain all the extra mouths we have to feed. So, we have now taken on and hired an extra 1500 acres of fresh grazing pastures around us in Norfolk where lots of our rescued horses and cows are already enjoying life in the natural environment these meadows provide.
Taking advantage of all this extra grassland, not only benefits the animals, but helps to reduce our long-term feeding costs. However, having this additional land, which provides every animal with an acre of fresh grass to graze, costs around £100 per cow or horse for the whole summer which is much healthier for the animals than feeding them hay all through the year.
If you would like to donate towards feeding a horse or cow throughout the summer months,

For anyone who would like to donate £100, we will send you a special personalised picture/certificate of your choice of a horse or cow grazing in the fields.
