Hillside Shire Horse Sanctuary ~ West Runton, Norfolk, England

With express permission from John, the creator of a beautiful short film on the Hillside Shire Horse Sanctuary in West Runton in Norfolk, England, we present his works capturing the goings on at Hillside. They rescue other animals besides the Shire Horses from cruelty and neglect as well.

Due to the HD quality and viewing window size of this film, it is best to click on the link noted below to watch it directly from YouTube.


If you want more of a desktop vacation, here is another film of John's of when he first moved to Norfolk. Absolutely breathtaking. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbuNs1f_rCk&feature=channel

Thank you, "Norfolk Traveller" for sharing what you have seen and experienced, and allowing us to repost your beautiful work. -kat

Bittersweet Sunday

The Time Came Last Sunday For Us to Bid Farewell to Our Sweet Buddy, Indy. He and His New Owner Traveled Well, and We Were Told That He Was A Perfect Gentleman When He Arrived At His New Barn. We Know That His New Owner Will Love Him And Give Him More Attention As An Only Horse. He Deserves Every Bit Of It.

Viel Gl├╝ck, Nicht auf Wiedersehen!
(Good Luck -- Not Goodbye!)

Me? Thanksgiving Dinner? HaHaHaHa!!

Today, Jessie and the kids were headed down to the barn at Peters Creek Farm for evening feeding and turnout. While en route, they come across "Big Bird".

When Jessie, Spike-O and the kids got out to investigate, Big Bird hopped up on the fence, allowed them to touch it, hopped down and strutted on into the woods.

The gang headed on down the hill and began the evening feeding/turning out ritual. About 20 minutes later, PetersCreek Turk, a five-year old Cleveland Bay Horse, started making a lot of noise in his stall. Jessie went over to check on him, and she saw a flash of red out of the corner of her eye . . . what did she spy?

"Turkey Lurkey" on top of the well house outside Turk's window, waiting and ordering its own feed and water ration close to the PCF "drive-thru window". Jessie and the kids filled its order to go. He/She gobbled it up and off it went, into the woods behind the barn.

Quick! Lock the doors, bolt the windows , get the dogs and kids inside, call the neighbors . . .

It knows it's not hunting season, is still on the prowl and possibly headed your way!
