A WIRRAL horse welfare charity will open its gates to the public this weekend, offering supporters a chance to become acquainted with their four-legged neigh-bours to raise vital funds.

Horse Sense Wirral is hosting its second visitors day this Sunday from 12pm-2pm. 

An initial event in June, the first since the pandemic, raised more than £600.

After a flurry of new arrivals at the sanctuary, members of the public can meet some of the horses and ponies, including four young foals, one of whom is named Cliff.

He was found injured earlier this year after falling down a cliff edge in the carneddau mountain range.

All four foals were brought in as orphans this summer and receive round-the-clock milk feeding every two hours at the sanctuary, and are doing very well.

Amy Pirie, founder of Horse Sense Wirral, said: "After the success of our last visitor day, we are excited to welcome the local community to our sanctuary this Sunday from 12pm till 2pm. 

"A rare chance to go backstage and meet the ponies, including our adorable foals. Clifford the foal has personally agreed to work on a Sunday and meet our guests, he’s calling it “Cliff Fest 2022".

"Cakes, books and plants will be on sale, along with Alison’s Crafts and Candles." 

"For entry, we are just asking for a donation of your choice. We’d love to see you all there!"
