Hello to all my new friends!
As you know, my name is Rumpel, and I began my life on a big farm in Amersham, Buckinghamshire and sadly, despite the fact that there were over one hundred horses and donkeys on the farm, it was far from a happy place to live. Unfortunately, we all lived in very poor conditions and there was no food for us to eat. Many horses were so weak they were barely able to stand. I try my hardest to block out those memories of the place where ponies and donkeys often passed away because they were so hungry and poorly.
Then one day when I was just six months old, some people from the RSPCA and Redwings Horse Sanctuary arrived and, even through my hunger, my spirits lifted a little. They seemed to understand that we were nervous and were very patient with us, and allowed us to walk into the horse boxes filled with soft straw at our own pace. From that moment on, I knew that my life was changing for the better and how right I was.
I am now the new mascot for Equilibrium Products and I am over the moon to be part of their lovely team! They have even made a cartoon version of me, I look great in cartoon form 😉 so keep an eye out!
Lots of love and kisses, Rumpel xxx
