Sunshine, fresh air and horses
Today we headed out into the countryside to visit Bransby Horses after nearly three years since our last visit! Bransby is home to lots of horses and donkeys and the perfect place for a fun cheap family day out in Lincolnshire. Now we've been back, we will visit a bit more regularly as the kids just loved it.
You can read all about the amazing work Bransby do on their website, as well as all their upcoming events and improvements to the already vast site that includes a cafe, play area, second hand store, acres and acres of land to explore and even a little gift shop.
"Founded in 1968 by Mr Peter Hunt, Bransby Horses is one of the UK’s largest equine welfare charities. Dedicated to improving the lives of horses, donkeys and mules, our teams are working harder than ever to continue making positive differences to equines whenever we can, through rescue, rehabilitation, rehoming, education and by providing a safe haven."
We had a lovely day out and the weather was completely perfect - warm, sunny and not a blink of wind all day which is always good with the countryside in Lincs being so completely flat. Here's some of my photos from our day, I'm so glad we decided to go, the kids had a whale of a time, it wore us all out and we got lots of fresh air as well as the chance to meet some truly beautiful animals.
We'd highly recommend Bransby for a family day out. It's free to get in, but they always appreciate donations. When you see all the hard work they put into their work and rehabilitation for the beautiful horses, you can see that donations are well put to good use and very deserved too. Soph has been such a grump all week, they have both been scrapping non stop but the space, fresh air and peace at Bransby was just the ticket to make everyone smile and have fun.
