Visiting Ada Cole.

On Friday 25th August, my mum came to visit for the day, the plan was to pop over to Redwings Ada Cole, which is a horse rescue center, not to far from where I live, It sounded like a good idea to walk there, which wasn’t as there was very in the little way of paths on an extremely busy road.


But we got there around 3 and spend a good hour walking around and seeing all the horses and donkeys.



It was really lovely to get out and wander around the local area for a change, we only really go down to the local nature reserve so it was a great change, PLUS its a free visit too, well.. apart from the ice cream we ate at the end of the day.



K learnt something about horses, that they smell, but he also learnt about the personality of horses and how to tell when they are happy/sad/annoyed and A was just happy to see ‘ponies’, we even found a Pinkie!! R very much enjoyed herself, I don’t think shes ever seen a horse before so it was a delight seeing her react to them.


Ada Cole is open to the public three times a week and my children often visit with the school, its a lovely little educational place and many of the horses, if not all are rescue from all walks of life..

We are for sure going to get back there at some point!

Until next time

    Awww, what a lovely place to visit! Places like this are really wonderful and do such amazing work. I’ll have to look for one that is more local to me. I think the boys would love it.

    What a wonderful place to visit. That’s great that they get to learn more about the horses and that they look after rescues.
