After a day on the computer I was ready to get out and see the animals.    With one of our lovely volunteers clearing the donkey shed and filling their hay nets meant we could spend a little more time with the ponies.  After feeding alpacas and hens we managed to brush Nelson and Milly.  Nelson is always reluctant to be caught but once stopped and cuddled he actually enjoys a brush.  His mane needed a good detangle as had a few of those pesky burrs in knoting it up.&#...

Am going to start putting up a diary of daily activities.  Maybe not every day but as often as I can remember.

This morning I had an office day while MC did the rounds and fed everyone.  Now the ponies are back in the village for the winter I am always on tender hooks that Sooty may have decided to break out and visit the surrounding fields overnight.   Mind you we have put up an electric fence infront of the old fence so hopefully this will keep him from being tempt...

Tales from Nanny P's

Posted on 13 September, 2018 at 10:05 Comments comments (0)

Here at Nanny P’s we have rescued animals living with. They are cared for by the small charity set up by a lady who tries to help make the life better for animals. Through stories about the animals she hopes it will help people to understand them. A bit like learning about different lifestyles of different humans around the world. Animals just live differently to humans.

Re-branding and shopping.

It is now June 2018 and quite a lot has happened quite apart from the amount of time lapsed since last blog......

Anyway just a quick update about this site if nothing else.  You may have noticed a slight rebranding.  Nanny P's has become the home of the charity and trips of the tongue slightly more easily too.  This will enable us to sell more products and donate the proceeds to the charity.

Talking of which we have added an online shop page/webstore for this and w...

Charity Car

Monday 19th was MOT Day for the Subaru our trusty workhorse.  As it is quite an elderly vehicle it is always a nerve racking time and sure enough it failed on a few 'gators' whatever they are.  Anyway the lovely Sid from Rowe Brothers in Stanhoe replaced them and repaired a few things including some extras that he did not need to do like tow bar, electric aerial, and it made it through on the re-test later that day. It feels like a new car - well nearly. 

Not sure it goin...

Alpaca shearing

Posted on 22 June, 2017 at 10:25 Comments comments (0)

Friday 16th was a busy very hot day.  The ladies from http://www.azsualpacas.com/ came to shear our alpacas.  They were lovely mother, daughter and friend who were gentle, professional and certainly seem to be 'alpaca whisperers'  

Mind you they should know a thing or two as they have over 200 of their own.

Mobile Farm

Having spoken to several schools it appears one of the main difficulties for them is getting children to our site especially on one to one basis so we are about to launch our 'Mobile Farm' in 2017/18 academic year which will take the animals to the schools.   This will enable the children to carry out activities aligned to the National Curriculum without leaving the school premises saving time and money.  Whole year groups can access the 'farm' and then we may be able to identify an...

Our charity has started off the New Year with a fantastic fund raising event.  A very brave man called David Reeve agreed to have his head shaved and raised over £700 in the process!!!  Amazing
