It has been a very tough winter at the sanctuary, as most inmates are getting old and more fragile. And while we will always remember them it is great to welcome new arrivals. The latest, Orophelia is a new experience for us. She is a traditional Cretan Pony, which means that instead of the normal gait, they ‘pace’ while running instead of the traditional gallop.
Many Scots will recognize this as it is of feature of our trotting ponies.
Needless to say as almost the smallest inmate, she has been befriended by the largest horse we have.
Anyone is welcome to visit, if you can just call first, 697 6088547, we are located just outside Anatoli on the road down towards Ierapetra.
Inevitably we also have our share of abandoned dogs and cats.
